I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Summer Crochet Poncho

Super easy summer crochet poncho. 

8 oz soft worsted yarn
6:00 crochet hook

This pattern allows you to work as few or as many rows to create the length poncho you are looking for. 

Ch 80 sts for S - L sizes working with loose tension. Sl st into first ch to form a ring. 

Row 1 - Ch 1, Sc in same sp and each ch around the 80 sts. Sl st in 1 st.

Row 2 - Ch 1, Dc in same sp, ch 5, dc in same sp to form a corner *ch 5, sk 3 sts, sc in next st* repeat from * to * until you have 5 ch 5 spaces and 4 scs, ch 5.

**Sk 3 sts, dc in next st, ch 5, dc in same st to form a corner** Repeat from * to * for 5 ch 5 sps and 4 scs, ch 5 then repeat from ** to ** all twice more to complete the 4 sides. You will end with 3 sts remaining. Sl st into top of beginning dc. You will have created 4 corners.

Row 3 - Sl st into ch 5 sp of 1st corner, ch 1, dc in same sp, ch 5, dc in same sp. *Ch 5, sc in next ch 5 sp, ch 5* Repeat from * to * until you reach the next corner. **Dc in ch 5 sp of corner, ch 5, dc in same sp** Repeat * to * to next corner then repeat from ** to ** to complete all sides. At end of last side after completing the last ch 5, sl st at top of starting dc of same row. Use a safety pin to mark the end of the row.

Work row 3 for as many rows as you like.

When you've reached the length you desire, cut yarn and slipknot to secure and sew in the end.

This length used nearly the full 8 oz skein. For a longer poncho buy more than 8ozs.
