Free Crochet Pattern…Woodland Splendor Poncho!

The Woodland Splendor Poncho is cozy, modern, and elegant.  Easy but gorgeous stitches work up quickly, and assembly is a breeze too!  The poncho is the perfect topper for both fall and winter, and even into spring.  Looks equally lovely dressed up or on casual days too.

Some of you might recognize the special stitch from our Fall CAL!  When we began the CAL last month, many of you requested a poncho.  This project is the poncho version of the Forest Splendor Shawl…thanks so much for your requests!  Want to make the shawl too?  Click HERE!

    1. I highly recommend everyone watch the video on completing the poncho. I couldn't have gotten it right otherwise!

  1. Thank you so much for the Woodland Splendor poncho pattern!! You have no idea how long I've been looking for a roll neck poncho! and the pattern is so pretty. I plan on using a little bigger hook to make it a little more airy for Spring. I'll post a pic when I'm done. Thx again
