This is a crochet pattern review for a classic, retro granny square poncho found during Leisure Art’s 50th Anniversary sale. Once I got things figured out, the whole project flew by, and I loved the process!
The result was something that will certainly become my favorite fall accessory. It’s warm, but not heavy. The hood is nice to block out a breeze but loose enough that it’s not constricting. And the little accents like fringe and tassels totally elevate this from a basic poncho to a stylish conversation starter. I think I’ll enjoy tossing this over a t-shirt during that transition time period where you need just a little something in the early mornings or the chilly late evenings.
This was a very simple and quick pattern, so there isn’t too much to say. The directions are pretty straight forward in terms of the structure. The most difficult part is also the most striking part of the stitch texture. The “ivy stitch” is where this pattern gets its name, and it’s a really cool look! This technique involves working what are essentially spike stitches into a sort of semi-circle shape, working into different previous rows to get the desired look.
The pattern itself was a wonderful experience. It’s so easy to understand, and the stitch pattern is one of my favorites for a reason. It’s a timeless look that is surprisingly easy to replicate in crochet! The pattern was written with beginners in mind, and is very accessible for people of all crochet skill levels.
This is a free crochet pattern for how to crochet my Apple Soap Cozy (or Small Gift Bag), an easy crochet pattern perfect for pampering yourself, or gifting with a handmade bar of soap or facial scrubbies, a favor/candy pouch, or a small gift bag with a new pair of earrings.
This bag is worked using a simple single crochet stitch worked into the back loop to create this fun, ribbed pattern paired with a trendy color block pattern. It’s finished with a snap button, but an alternative to this would be to leave off the flap, crochet a chain loop instead, and sewing on a respective sized button.
I love the creativity in this pattern. It looks interesting, and in a cute color it can easily blend into your decor. Or if it’s a gift for a kid, it would look fun in a brightly colored shade to stand out! I appreciated the thorough instructions in both the stitching and the assembly, and I’m very happy with my finished result.
