Learn how to make a poncho! I’m sharing this new and super easy, free Ladies sewing pattern for an Asymmetrical Poncho. The free poncho pattern comes in two sizes: S/M and L/XL. (My lil’ missy has already requested one too, so stay tuned for this poncho pattern to be available in child sizes!)
Fall is officially here and we are just waiting for the cooler temperatures to arrive. (Any day now, I’m sure!) If you do any online browsing, I’m sure you’ve noticed ponchos are quite popular this year. So of course, I want one too! I debated for at least 2 weeks over which fabric to use. I have several sweater knits in bright colors, but I really wanted something semi-neutral, but not too boring- because really, I am not a neutral kind of girl.
I made this first poncho by color blocking two stretch ponte knits and added a strip of dark grey along the seam for interest. Definitely cute and I love that I finally have something to wear with my embroidered western boots. This is going to be perfect for our Halloween hayride and Friday night football games. (Just imagine the poncho in your favorite school colors!)
But as I said, I’m not really a neutral kind of girl… So I went ahead and made a second poncho in this bright pink sweater knit.
While I just liked the first poncho (it’s thick and warm, like a blanket,) I’m in love with this second one! Jewel tones are my favorite colors, so score one there, but the sweater knit just flows so much better than the ponte knit and is very flattering on the body! So for sure, I recommend a sweater knit or a 4-way stretch, flowy knit for the most flattering look.
