*When blocked this stitch pattern opens up significantly to add more length. If you feel that you would like your piece longer, you may add more row repeats, but me sure to account for extra yardage. 

Assembly for Child and Adult Sizes

Lay your panels with right sides facing up if using a mattress stitch.
Begin seaming from the outer most corners in 36 (48, 58, 62, 60, 72, 70) stitches on the Fsc side so that you will be leaving a space in the middle to create the neck where the collar will be attached.
*If you feel that you would like a larger or smaller neck opening you can add or subtract how many rows you seam up. However, you will need to adjust the number of rows for the collar.

How to seam crochet

Collar

The stitches are what make up the height of the collar on this collared crochet poncho so that it can be folded in half when worn. If you would like a shorter collar you can subtract stitches off of your Fsc for both child and adult sizes.

Row 1
Fsc 15 (20, 25, 30, 35, 35, 35) sts.
Row 2
Ch 1, turn, sc in first st, sc in BLO to next to last st, sc in last st.
Row 3- 48 (48, 56, 64, 72, 72, 80)
Repeat Row 2, fold in half and sl st your last row to your first row, finish off.

Collared Crochet Poncho Assembly

If you have not already, fold your collar in half and align the last row with the Fsc row and seam together. Be mindful of your tension so the seam does not pinch. Leave a tail 4 times the diameter of your collar.

Now that you have the body of your poncho assembled and the collar created it is time to attach it, again, be mindful of your seams.

Keep your poncho with right sides facing and place your collar in between the two panels with the collar seam on the outside (right side in on the collar) and centered at the back. 

Begin to attach your collar to the neck opening you created being careful to align each stitch with a row. I highly suggest using a mattress stitch which will give you the best stretch for the neckline. Be very careful not to tighten your stitches.

Finish off and weave in any remaining ends!

I HIGHLY suggest wet blocking this poncho. That will really open up the lacy shell stitches and give the collar on this collared crochet poncho less structure to make it extra cozy!

*If you feel that you would like a larger or smaller neck opening you can add or subtract how many rows you seam up. However, you will need to adjust the number of rows for the collar.

I hope you enjoyed making this Summer Crochet Poncho Pattern as much as I did! This lacy crochet poncho pattern made with simple stitches is going to be one of your favorite makes ever! Maybe you even made a mommy and me set using the child and adult sizes!
