I decided to go with a Navajo Style pattern with this Serape Crochet Poncho. I’ve made this one for my daughter Lilly. I didn’t sew up the sides this time. My husband requested that I did it with the poncho I made him last year. I decided to use a simple stitch that’s easy to repeat so this crochet serape pattern is very beginner friendly.

For this project you’ll need:
YARN: I used worsted weight yarn, 4 ply US, 10 ply AU
I used 1 ½ skeins of each color, so grab two of each of the 5 colors you wish to use if you are making this large size.
- 2 white
- 2 black
- 2 tan
- 2 brown
- 2 dark grey
Each Skein was – 100 grams / 3.5. oz or 210 meters / 230 yards
You can adjust the size of your own poncho in length by making your beginning chain longer in multiples of 2 and repeat the crochet rows as many times you need to widen your panel.
Each panel measured 16 inc / 41 cms wide and 46 in / 118 cms in length but then you’ll fold it in half when making the poncho.
Remember you’re making 2 panels and sewing them together so each panel is half the size of the poncho. Each panel is 62 rows total.
This poncho measured 33 in /84 ½ cms wide from shoulder to bottom
and 23 in / 59 cms long once it was folded and sewn so if you want your poncho to hang down lower to cover your legs, make the beginning chain longer.
