With a 3 round repeat, this square poncho is easy to make and is a great project to take with you in waiting rooms, pick-up lines, road trips, and crochet and knit groups! Use your scraps of yarn to make magic yarn and turn them into fashion. I made mine with nearly a dozen colors of Lion Brand Heartland yarn that I had in my stash. I love finding ways to use partial skeins of yarn, and the more you use, the more fun the Penny Poncho becomes. So dig through those bags, bins, closest, and cubbies and find your odds and ends to make some magic.

The Penny Poncho is part of the CAL Central Crochet Holiday Stashdown CAL. Find more details HERE.

How the 2020 Holiday Stashdown CAL Works

Every Monday and Thursday from September 21 through December 17, 2020, we’ll share a free crochet pattern by a different designer. Each pattern will be a one-skein project, or a stashbuster/scrappy project, so you can work from your own existing yarn stash to make a great winter holiday gift, decoration, or wrap. If you’d like to go ahead and buy some yarn just for the project, we won’t stop you! We love yarn as much as you do.

Holiday Stashdown Square

We’ve teamed up with thirteen wonderful companies – Babé Crochet, Bags by Awesome Grannie, Clover USA, GlassEyesOnLine, I Like Crochet, JitterBeanMugs, Knitter’s Pride, Kraemer Yarns, Nelsonwood, Search Press North America, Unicorn, Walnut Farm Designs, and WeCrochet – to gather some amazing prizes for our end-of-CAL giveaway. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway in this post on Underground Crafter by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, December 31, 2020!
