My Corner to Corner Poncho can be found in March 2018, Issue 42 of the Pattern Pack Pro. This issues theme was “Ponchos” to include mine and five other ponchos.

Originally, I designed this poncho with the theme “Cakes Yarn” in mind for another issue, but upon completion, Emily wanted it for this poncho issue. I happily agreed. In my designing process though, I wanted something different. Most of the Cakes projects I see are blankets and scarves, and I wanted to do something different, so I went with this Corner to Corner Poncho.
Though I didn’t add into this design, you could always add some buttons down the sides to keep closed. And with this poncho being a one size fits most, the neckline is too. I wear a size large top, and after I put this on, I think if I were to make another, I would make my neck opening 12″. With a larger opening, the poncho would lay better, and not pull up as much on the backside.
To complete your own Corner to Corner Poncho, you will need 1,532 yards of #4 Worsted Weight Yarn – I used four skeins of Caron’s Cakes in the Banana Bread colorway. Found mine at my local Michaels. You’ll also need an I9/5.5mm crochet hook. It would also be fun in a variegated color on one side, and a solid on the other, or all in one solid color.
