Crochet Shawls & Ponchos

Going through pictures I've come across some of the ponchos and shawls that I have made over the years. Some are my own design, while others are from a pattern.
I will try and list a pattern link where I can.


 The first poncho that I ever made was for my youngest daughter when she was a baby. She had already almost outgrown it here. This poncho is made with the softest ivory bamboo yarn, it is a simple square, Dc poncho. The bamboo makes it heavenly to the touch and was a pleasure to work with. Too bad that she out grew it, it was very warm and cosy, I would totally wear this! Sorry, no pattern to list for this one. (Made 2008, picture 2011)

2007




     Blue half circle shawl. Made with size 3 sequined wool. (2013)



Inspired, but different from this wonderful Boho Tuniek by Haak Trends (pattern not available).  (2015)



Cowl neck poncho, inspired, but my own
pattern. (2015)





This convertible Skirt/Poncho pattern, can be worn two different ways.  Free pattern on Yarnspiration. (2012)




My own design for a circular poncho. Made with Caron Simply Soft yarn and "I Love This Yarn", along with other yarn scraps.  Inspired and for my youngest daughter. My own pattern. 
This was one of my first mixed yarn patterns and I totally enjoy the way the different yarn combinations feel together.  (2012)

 




Youngest daughter's Spring Poncho, inspired by Fiesta Poncho designed by Crystal Bear Designs, visit her shop or Ravelry, for her pattern.  (2018)




Joined with Celtic Lace Join. Added detachable flower embellishment.


These are so versatile and great for Texas weather!





My own design for a Bohemian style poncho. (2014)




My "extended version" of Lacy Pineapple Shawl. (2012)





Free, Aphrodite Shawl pattern, similar to above.
(Psst.... I think they are the same pattern...lol!) (2012)




Warm comfy Sierra Poncho. (2013)





This crochet Half Moon Shawl pattern can be found free on Ravelry. (2012)







This poncho was my size and didn't fit her, but what a cute model :)
It has been a while, but I am guessing that this is the Martha Stuart Home Coming Poncho with more simple scalloped edge, and made with Caron Simply Soft yarn. (2012)

2012
 


My own design that I sold on Etsy, in my shop for a few years. It also works as a skirt. (2014)





Mother and daughter size ponchos.


More shawls and ponchos to come as I run across them......

Cotton Crochet Christmas Tree Skirt Pattern


Cranberry Pineapple Crochet Christmas Tree Skirt 

Crocheted with Cotton


Loving the tree skirt made with Lily Sugar'n Cream Cotton Yarn!


In the Cranberry Pineapple Crochet Christmas tree skirt pattern, it calls for size 4 worsted weight yarn. In the past, I have always used Hobby Lobby "I Love This Yarn" because of the great colors. Another suggested yarn is Lily's Sugar'n Cream, size 4.  It works up close to the same size with a great cotton feel.  

I would like to note that in the past, I did not recommend this cotton due to the extra hand strength necessary to crochet with this yarn and hook size. If you suffer from arthritis, it can make it a difficult project.  But it can also be very therapeutic to get this workout, and with really great results. If you are up to the challenge, I would recommend you give it a try. With its substantial weight and it's great texture and feel, the size 4 cotton is a great yarn for the Cranberry Pineapple Crochet Christmas Tree Skirt.


If you have not purchased the Cranberry Pineapple tree skirt pattern, you may do so on Etsy. If you would like a tree skirt made just for you in cotton and do not see it listed, please make a request on Etsy.

The picture above of a work in progress is the new LARGE  Cranberry Pineapple Christmas tree skirt pattern.  Large and original patterns are now available separate or as a bundle on Etsy.

Large Cranberry Pineapple Crochet Christmas Tree Skirt Pattern



2020, Cranberry Pineapple Crochet Christmas Tree Skirt Pattern updated. One update is the option to alter the original 43 inch skirt size, to be able to make a slightly larger skirt using L (8-11 mm) hook. This can yield 48 to 54 inch skirt, depending on hook, yarn, and tension used.  

Along with this added size option to the original, now you can make a 60 inch tree skirt with the new large tree skirt pattern.


The large pattern will need to be purchased separately from original pattern, due to the extensive differences. But these can be bundled together at a lower cost.


 If you have already purchased the tree skirt pattern prior to 2020, please email me, to receive the large pattern at no cost to you. 


Thank you for stopping by.
May you find joy and inspiration in life.

             Weave ends.


***Magic Ring***
Holding the yarn between your thumb and first 2 fingers on your left hand, wrap the yarn around first 2 fingers so that the yarn falls to the back and furthest away from you, insert the hook between these 2 fingers and under the top strand, grab the second hanging strand next to it with your hook and pull it through the loop, then make a chain with the loop on your hook and begin the pattern, working around the tail in the circle.  For closing; untwist the tail from the loop, pull the tail gently, join your circle before  closing tightly, pull gently but firmly closing the slack in the center of the circle. Be careful not to pull too tight, as this can break the yarn.

Try different yarns and hook sizes for different size and feel doilies. Original pattern uses size L hook, giving the finished project a softer feel with the loosely crocheted stitches. The smaller your hook, the stiffer and smaller your finished project will be.

Please email if you have questions, would like to share, or for any reason.

Printable pattern is available here on Google Docs as well as available for purchase in Doily Designs Etsy shop.
