This is a beginner friendly pattern that is made from a simple rectangle which is seamed on the sides a lacy hem to complements the solid body of the poncho.
The poncho is designed using the herringbone half double crochet stitch to give it the look of a knit fabric. The finished measurements give the size of the rectangle before seaming. Buttons are only for decoration and thus are optional!
