Crochet Cable Poncho

Hey guys! Sorry I haven’t made a post in a long time. I was invited to participate in a local craft fair and I have pretty much been spending all of my time making things for it, but I am taking a break to get this beautiful and simple pattern out to you. I think this poncho is such a great transitional piece for the spring/fall weather so I thought that now would be the perfect time to post it! I will be including a lot of photos to make the cables as easy as possible for you to catch on to. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to comment or shoot me an e-mail. You can find my email in the contact section of my page. I hope you have as much fun with this pattern as I did!

Materials:

6 balls of Premier Yarns Everyday Yarn in Cream

5.5 crochet hook

yarn needle

scissors

Stitches:

fptc: front post triple crochet- wrap the yarn around the hook 2 times and insert behind stitch, pull up a loop, yo (yarn over) and pull through 2 loops, yo and pull through 2. yo and pull through the last loops on hook.

fptc2tog: front post triple crochet 2 together- wrap yarn around hook 2 times and insert hook behind your stitch, yo and pull up loop, yo and pull through 2 loops on hook, yo and pull through 2 more loops on hook, yo 2 times and insert hook behind next post, yo and pull up loop, yo and pull through 2 loops on hook, yo and pull through 2 loops on hook, yo and pull through last 3 loops on hook.

Notes:

When you do your fptc stitches, make sure you skip the stitch directly behind your post stitches so you’re always going to end with 90 sts at the end of each row.

Pattern:

Ch 91

Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. (90) ch 2, turn.

Row 2: dc in each stitch across (90) ch 1, turn.

You’re finally done with working up the piece!!

For the tassels I cut my yarn into about 10 inch long pieces and took 2 at a time and attached them to every 3rd st starting with the first one on the ends. You can put the tassels on however you like them best, this is just how I did mine.

I hope you all enjoy this pattern!
