Free Doll Poncho Crochet Pattern
The poncho is worked as follows: alternate yarns A and B such that you work both colors in one direction, then turn the poncho and work both colors in the other direction. The fringe is worked along the rows, between turns. The poncho starts from the front lower point, increased to the shoulder line, then the sides are decreased to the bottom of the back. Spread out, it has a diamond shape, with the diagonal along the shoulder line and a hole for the head. (shop for this yarn here!)
The cowl is worked afterwards.
