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.

I LOVE ponchos–not sure if they love me but I don't care! Thanks for bringing the awesome crochet to the Friday Frenzy, we appreciate you.
They are quite warm and cozy. Wear them anyway! 🙂

I love this pattern, with the colorful stripes. Thank you for sharing at The Really Crafty Link Party. Pinned!
The strips are perfect with the new Caron Cakes Yarn. Nice long color lengths (can't think of the actual term right now). Thanks again for the feature!

i love ponchos too and such pretty colors! This looks like a lot of work
thanks for linking!
Thanks! The colors really called to me when I was yarn shopping. I will admit, this poncho did take me quite some time to put together, but the beauty of the Caron Cakes yarn is that all these colors are found in one skein, so you don't have to change colors and weave in a bunch of ends. Thanks for stopping by!

I only recently learnt to do c2c and loved it. This looks great.
Corner to corner is so fun! I have a few other projects in the works using the same technique. I really wanted to come up with something that was outside of the box, not the typical scarf or blanket, and I love how the poncho turned out!
