Poncho-Herstellung mit Kapuze

  hi everyone and welcome back to my channel today we're gonna be crocheting this really easy ava fringed poncho you won't believe how simple it is so getting started here guys we're going to be using some Lion Brand yarn this is from their LB collection that's sold exclusively on lionbrand.com and this is the cotton bamboo now I haven't worked with this yarn before designing this projects and I gotta tell you I love it it's lightweight it's kind of between a level three and a level four worsted weight yarn I'm gonna be
using a J or six millimeter hook it's gonna give us a little bit of a bigger stitch for this yarn but it's really soft it's really lightweight it's got a little bit of a shine to it without being too shiny and this LB collection is only sold online you can only get it from lionbrand.com and I know the ordering yarn online is not something that maybe you do maybe you always shop it you know big-box stores or local yarn shops but the reason they do this LP collection only online is so that they can offer really high quality yarns at a more reasonable
price so that they don't have like the wholesale situation with big box stores and then they mark it up and it's out of everyone's price range so for this quality of yarn everything in the LB collection but especially this cotton bamboo it's really really affordable for the quality of yarn that you're getting so think of it as kind of the exclusive like platinum line of yarn so you're gonna need a different number of Skeens depending on what size you're making I'm here making the size medium large in
this video and basically it's just two rectangles no matter what size you're making it's just gonna vary based on kind of your stitch counts so make sure to reference that written pattern in the link in the description box below that's gonna give you the different sizing for the extra small all the way up to four XL so really it's just two basic rectangles that are gonna be fold it up and seamed up and you're gonna have a seam running right in the front of the poncho and it's gonna create kind of a heart shape um once you
sew everything up and the construction of this is kind of unique and a little different so I hope that that is something fun and different for you it's not hard or difficult or confusing at all but I wanted to make sure to film a video tutorial for you guys especially my beginners out there this is a very very beginner friendly first garment pattern it's really really easy to make it's really mindless and it comes out really cute and trendy and fashion-forward and it's just nice and simple you're just gonna make two rectangles you're gonna add the trim
around the collar and then the edging trim around the hem line and then that fun tassel fringe I'm gonna show you everything you need to know right here in the video but make sure that you reference that link in the description box below for the written pattern in case you're making anything other than the medium slash large size that's what I'm making in this video this is a quite roomy pattern so if you want things to be more fitted more snug or shorter then definitely size down but this fits you know fairly true to size so if you are
falling in the medium large range this will look great if you fall you know like just follow you got what I'm saying follow the thing so Slipknot start with a slipknot we're gonna get our hook in there and we're just gonna start with a regular old foundation chain so remember chain is just yarn over and pull through we're starting our two rectangular panels here which make up almost the entire poncho so just go ahead and work up a whole foundation chain for the medium large size we're gonna be chaining 69 stitches again the written
pattern is gonna give you adjustments for all the different sizes offered extra small through Forex cell so it's really easy to adjust things as you need to and also don't be afraid of the written pattern I know that a lot of you come to YouTube because it's video instruction but this written pattern is really really simple and easy to follow even if that's not your jam so here I have all 69 chain stitches I'm going to start up on my first row so countdown 1 2 3 & 4 we're gonna double crochet and that fourth chain from our
hook so it's this one right here the fourth one if you need to rewind that and watch me count again feel free to yarn over insert your hook pull up a loop yarn over pull through two and yarn over pull through two that is a double crochet we can see how that looks there we're going to double crochet in the very next stitch and in each stitch all the way down so we should wind up with 66 double crochets here in row 1 remember to have relaxed tension we don't want tight tensed hands that are going to throw off the fit of this poncho even if this is your first
garment or one of your first projects it is a mountain that you can climb so don't be too tense or worried about it so here we have our first few double crochets worked up this is how it should be looking with that chain 3 in the very beginning your chain stitches also in this whole pattern are not going to count as a stitch so whenever I tell you to chain something don't count that as a stitch so just go ahead and double crochet all the way down this might take you a couple of minutes so just go ahead and pause the video and work up all of those double crochets I'm going to show
you how to get started with this first rectangle and then I'm gonna kind of let you go off on your own to finish it up and make the second one but you're going to do exactly the same thing two times through to make your two rectangles so here I have Row one done all double crochets I'm ready to start row two I'm going to chain up three there's one two and three chain stitches we're gonna flip it turn your work to always work from the right to the left side of your rows so here for Row two we're going to
skip the first stitch and double crochet this is our lace row row two so there we go we skipped one we started with a chain three we skipped one and we double crocheted now we're gonna chain one we're gonna skip one and we're going to double crochet again so remember skip over one and double crochet that chain one skip one is what's going to create the lacy look of this poncho so here we should have what looked like to kind of gaps chain one skip one double crochet and we're just going to keep repeating this all the way
down nothing's gonna change no matter what size you're making you should wind up after you do your chain one skip one double crochet all the way down with a double crochet in the last stitch and I'll show you that in just a second but no matter what size you're making you will have an even number of stitches in each row which means that you'll always end on a double crochet in your lace rows so here's how it should be looking you should have these little gaps and double crochets spaced nicely so just go ahead and continue that all the way down
through the end of row two remember this is what we're calling our lace row we're just gonna be working a two row repeat for the entirety of our rectangles so this is the first row of our two row repeat our lace row row two this is what it looks like when it's all done we've double crocheted in that last stitch make sure you don't stitch it all into the turning chain from the very first row chain up two and turn now you'll notice at the beginning of the lace row we chain three but at the beginning of our double crochet row we just chain two
so now this is our double crochet row we're just gonna work a double crochet in each stitch along starting with this very first stitch here double crochet now we're going to double crochet again into the chain one space so that opening gap just work right down into the gap don't worry about working into the chain one stitch it'll work fine if you just work into the gap so that's how that should be looking double crochet in the next stitch this should be the top of an actual stitch and then into the chain one gap and you're gonna continue this
you guessed it all the way to the end of row three or double crochet row you're going to be working alternately into chain one gaps and the tops of your double crochet stitches from our lace row all the way down now worth mentioning than in the written pattern below you'll see that there are stitch counts at the end of each row to tell you how many stitches you should have but you'll notice that it's the same stitch number for all of your rows so no matter what size you're making whatever number of stitches you had in
row one should be the same number of stitches that you have in every lace row if you count the chain one stitches and in your double crochet rows until the end of this rectangle so here's the end of our row 3 our double crochet row this is how it should be looking and we're just gonna keep repeating lace row double crochet row lace row double crochet row or rows 2 & 3 2 & 3 2 & 3 until we have the appropriate number of rows for our size now for me making the size medium large I am going to be working all the way through row 69 so
depending on your size it'll change a little bit how many rows you need to make but it's gonna be about the same and you're just gonna keep repeating this until you have that number of rows finished so for me in the pattern it says to work up to row 69 so I'm gonna work through row 69 until 69 is finished and it is worth mentioning that all the sizes should end on an odd number row so you should end on a double crochet row that's just gonna make things a little bit easier later on for seaming and it's gonna make those seams a little bit
stronger working off of double crochets instead of lace rows just thought I'd throw that out there Here I am starting to repeat my lace row again I'm just gonna keep on going lace rows and double crochet rows until I have 69 rows again or the appropriate number for your size and once that is done once my first rectangle is done I'm just going to break my yarn I'm gonna finish off and then I'm going to start this whole thing over again and make a second rectangle if you need to rewind the video and watch from the beginning again please
feel free to do that as you need to now I have both rectangles done in my size believe it or not this poncho is almost finished we are well beyond halfway done at this point so it's probably been a minute since I've seen you and you have two beautiful lacy rectangles in front of you congratulations you are almost to being able to wear this poncho aren't you excited I'm excited okay so these should be about the same size sometimes a little stretching may occur you may have an interested toddler like I do that stretches things out of
proportion but in general you should have two rectangles that look about the same so we're gonna fold these kind of interestingly and seeing them up to create an interesting poncho heart shape so the way that we're gonna do that is we're going to kind of form an L shape our first seam is going to be sewing the top of one rectangle so what is the last row of one rectangle to the side of another rectangle the rough edge of the other one and I'm going to show you what I mean here so basically we need all of the stitches of one rectangle going one
way and the stitches of the other rectangle going the other way you want to match up the ends of one side so that everything is straight I know that it's really difficult to explain and it's much easier to just catch on visually I'm so sorry I wasn't able to zoom out anymore my filming setup right now won't allow me to get a wider angle than this and these rectangles are really big but just make sure that one rectangle is laying kind of lengthwise and one rectangle is laying kind of width wise and you're going to match up the ends of
one rectangle and the rough edge of another rectangle to create one gigantic L shape so you're gonna need some stitches we're just going to hold things in place with some stitch markers you can also use bobby pins or a spare piece of yarn there's lots of different options if you don't have any stitch markers so we're just gonna match up these ends here again we're sewing the end of a row on one rectangle to the rough edge of another rectangle I really hope this is making sense to you guys even though you can't see the entire
picture here just go ahead and pin that where everything is laying nice flat and there is no like pulling or puckering on either of your panels I'm also going to put a stitch marker here in the center just kind of hold things nicely in place and I don't wind up stretching either piece of fabric in the process of sewing so now at this point we really just have to sew along this seam I'm going to use a mattress stitch because that's going to create a more invisible seat than a lot of other stitches would it's also going to be a
stronger seam especially being that we're sewing into one of the panel's rough edges it can be a little tricky so I wanted to use a simple seaming technique that's also strong and will keep your pieces joined together for all eternity so we're gonna need to cut a fairly long piece of stray yarn I would like to use the general rule that you need triple the amount of the length of your seam so that's just kind of a general rule of thumb I go by that usually gives me just enough to weave in my ends and make all the stitches I need to sew that's a
little trick for you if you don't know how much yarn to cut so we're gonna go ahead and thread our tapestry needle and we're gonna create a knot at the end of the yarn leaving a tail long enough to weave in so I like to leave maybe about 8 inches of a tail just give me plenty of space create a knot there so you can see we have a nice bulky knot to keep things nice and anchored I'm gonna start here at the edge where things come together there's no real rhyme or reason I just always like going right to left on crochet projects it just kind of
keeps my brain all moving in one direction so I'm gonna come from the inside out with this mattress stitch and what I mean by inside-out if you haven't worked a mattress stitch before is that if you were to imagine the center of this seam the space in between the two panels that you're stitching you want to insert your needle from the middle of that seam outward so I'm going to work once into each row or into each stitch so on the rough edge here you can see I'm coming inside out on the edges of those rows and then I'm
coming inside out on those stitches now if you find that stitching into every single stitch on one panel and then into every stitch on the edge of your rows is causing any pulling or puckering or gathering or anything funny is going on feel free to stitch where you see fit to make things lay nice and flat if you find that stitching in a certain spot works out better and makes things lie flat for you by all means do that it's always kind of difficult to explain like exactly where around the stitch you insert your needle so feel free to watch this as many times as you need to see it
how I'm doing it but at the same time you are a creative genius and I trust you to handle it and sew up your pieces that you've worked so hard making the way that you want to so I'm just gonna stitch along all the way removing my pins my stitch markers as I go just sewing back and forth regular old mattress stitch there are lots of other more in-depth tutorials on mattress stitching also or you could use a traditional whip stitch if that's your your favorite thing so just go ahead and stitch all the way down here make sure that you get that last stitch real good
I like to backstitch once or twice over that last stitch just to really lock things in place just a personal preference and then you're gonna want to go ahead and weave these ends we don't want them hanging around for later it just kind of I don't know I don't like leaving my ends unwoven because it confuses me so we should have a giant L shape at this point we should have two real long skinny panels kind of coming out from each other in a big L shape so go ahead and leave those ends and then we're going to work our second seam you
will not believe how easy this is to fold up so we're going to take the bottom of one panel this one here the one leg of Elle we're gonna fold it in to meet the rough edge of the other leg of our Elle so it doesn't matter which one you go with you're just gonna take it up from the bottom and fold it up to meet the top imagine you're just folding it in half like a sandwich now we're gonna take this other piece once that's kind of all laid out nice and flat and things aren't fudged up in any weird way we're
gonna take this piece and just fold it in to meet our other leg so what we should have right now is ends that are all matching up and a seam that presents itself that needs to be sewn so I'm again gonna use my stitch markers I'm going to pin these pieces together this is the second seam we're going to create and the last seam that we're going to sew so there's really just it's two rectangles two seams and you have this really cool unique style poncho so I'm just placing my stitch markers here one on each end and one in the middle
you should have make sure that you're not sewing along this big v-shape so there should be a little V at the top and that's gonna be your neckline there should be a big V at the bottom and that's gonna be the bottom of your poncho so make sure that you're not sewing up the bottom make sure you're sewing up that seam kind of along the side here so again just take a really long piece of yarn we're gonna thread our tapestry needle create a knot and I'm just gonna kind of speedily hurry along here with this seam so that we're
not here all weekend with this video so we're just gonna go ahead and sew right along this seam again starting on one side make sure you don't miss that very first stitch we're gonna want to secure all of that and at this point you can really start to see the poncho taking shape you should have kind of a big I like to look at it as a heart maybe that's just me seeing hearts and everything with a little bit of a angular shape I guess I don't know does it look like a heart to you comment below if it looks like a heart and tell me I'm not crazy so just go
ahead and stitch all the way along here back and forth back and forth try not to get impatient and skip along and only make a few stitches to secure this because with the lacy nature of this poncho it's gonna show when you wear it if you don't really stitch into every available place so I know that you've been out at a while here making these big giant rectangles but I promise just go ahead and continue to take your time sewing up these panels and it will all be worth it in the long run now after this second seam is done we're just
gonna create some edging along the neckline some edging along the hemline and then add on that tassel fringe you can leave off any portion of this that is not really floating your boat so if you don't want to edge off the neckline and the hemline and add the fringe you don't have to you can stop right here and wear your poncho out the door but to me the edging really kind of finishes it off and makes it look nice and polished also if you're to leave the neckline how it is right now it wouldn't look bad but it is gonna be a wider more open
neckline the trim that we're gonna add is going to kind of bring things in and make a real nice clean rounded edge so just some food for thought or if you're working with yarn from your stash and you don't have enough yardage you can wear this poncho the way it is okay so just go ahead and finish up here stitching all the way along one of these seams will be on the front and one will be on the back so if on the first seam you were still kind of finding your stride and the second one looks a lot better or vice versa you can always make
one the back side I'm on the other side totally up to you so stitching all the way to the very end here I'm going to go ahead and weave these ends and now we're ready to start the neckline so at this point our poncho assembly is done and we just need to work around this rough edge of the neckline but you can kind of see how things should be looking can even try it on it the point or have the person who's going to own the poncho if you're giving it as a gift try it on make sure the sizing is good so at this point we're gonna go
ahead and start in on the neckline this is really really simple and don't get worried about it we're going to start with a slipknot and we need to at this point decide what's gonna be the front what's gonna be the back because you want to join your yarn to whichever side is going to be the back side so that our little tiny neckline seam is a little less noticeable on the back of the neck so on the back side once you've decided which side that's going to be we're going to insert our hook right here next
to kind of the point of our B so join your yarn we're gonna chain just one and two and we're just going to double crochet in each stitch all the way around now we're working into a rough edge here so it's a little tricky I'm going to show you how I do it I'm going to double crochet in the same stitch where I change two so there we go we have our chain two in our double crochet I'm a double crochet in the next stitch and in the next stitch now since we're not stitching into the actual tops of a finished row of stitches we're
stitching into the side or the rough edge of these rows what I'm going to do to also create a nice pretty neckline as I'm only going to stitch each double crochet into the end of a row of stitching so because we're stitching into the rough edge and because double crochets are fairly long stitches if we wanted this to lay nice and flat we could add more double crochets but because this is a neckline and I kind of want to pull things in to lay nice and flat and not have a lot of extra stitches going on around the neck I'm just going to stitch once into the end
of each row so you can kind of see how I'm doing that here and it's not going to pull things to the point where it's like gaping and it looks like it's pulling but it is gonna very very softly kind of shape this neckline into a nice rounded edge and pull things into just a nice shape it's not going to create a funny looking fabric it's just gonna be just stretched enough to pull things nicely when it's worn so you can see here how it should be looking basically every time that you see a lace row you're gonna see two double crochets
before the next lace row if that makes sense so a double crochet for each lace row and a double crochet for each row of double crochets so just go ahead and stitch all the way along around to the front of the poncho and down this first side of the neckline we're gonna basically just do 1 double crochet in each stitch all the way around but I do want to show you how that looks when you get to the V in the front because it can be a little bit confusing since we have this join situation so once you get down here to the where the two panels meet the V in the front of your poncho I'm
just gonna keep stitching where I just have one double crochet in each row you can see here how that looks I'm going to work down into the join itself as well just to kind of finish things off and make sure that things aren't stretching too much or you know we're not like skipping any areas that need to be worked so like I said here at the V in the front we're going to work one double crochet into that join where those panels come together this is how it should be looking really you can't even find the stitch that I worked in to the
join just because everything kind of comes together nice and seamlessly and especially anyone that's just looking at this poncho is not gonna be able to tell really what you did with the neckline here it's just gonna look like a nice finished edge so continue on around all the way up and over that other side of the neckline you should have about the same number of double crochets from one side to the other of this neckline and you can see here how its on that first side curving in just a bit up over that shoulder and that's what I'm talking about when I say that it's
not that you have too few stitches for the number of rows you're working it's just that you're just working enough to bring things together and really create a nice neckline shape so we're gonna work all the way back down to where we started and when we get back down there we're going to slip stitch to join and that's the end of round 1 we're gonna chain up two and we're going to double crochet in each stitch all the way around so now this is a lot easier here in round two because we're working into
the tops of the stitches themselves so just go ahead and work one double crochet in each stitch all the way around starting with this very first one and like I said lots easier just working into the tops of the stitches we don't have to worry about where to stitch how many stitches the shape of the thing just work one stitch in each all the way around and this is gonna vary a bit depending on what size you're making so don't worry too much about a stitch count here just worry about it looking something like mine if you find that you have a lot of like ruffling happening or
a lot of what looks like loose open neckline happening you probably have too many stitches or if things are pulling and your panels are starting to not really lay flat anymore then you have too few stitches so you can adjust from there so working down the front side when you get to that front B we're just gonna keep continuing one double crochet in each stitch all the way around and then work back up that other side this is gonna be the second row our last row of double crochet our neckline is just gonna get one more row a third row but that one is just gonna be a nice even
row of single crochet all the way around I love finishing off a longer stitch or a more intricate stitch or something with just a nice simple round of single crochet I think it just gives a really nice I love the way that it sits on the work so after we've slipped stitch to join our around to we're gonna just chain up one and we're gonna single crochet in each stitch all the way around if you're running short on yardage because you're working with yarn from your stash or you're just worried about you know playing yarn chicken and possibly
running out you can leave off this last round of single crochet I just really like the way that it finishes things off so go ahead and work all the way around regular single crochets look how nice this is looking you guys I'm ready to wear this are you are you ready to wear it yet okay so after you get all the way back down we're gonna slip stitch to join once again we're going to finish off this yarn yarn over and pull it all the way through and out and we're gonna weave those ends now our neckline is totally done look how cute nice little
scoop kind of crew neckline it looks so much more polished than it did when it was those bees huh I think so okay so now that our neckline is done we just need to do our hemline edging which basically is just gonna be a nice even round of single crochets all the way around the bottoms of these panels so you're gonna be working all along this rough edge and it's just gonna finish things off real nice and simple I'm just gonna basically do two rounds of single crochet in each stitch nice and simple just finish this baby off I don't want
to add too much length here because I still I'm gonna add that tassel style fringe so go ahead and create a slipknot we're gonna join our yarn you can join anywhere on the hemline of the poncho that you like I do recommend being aware though of where you're the back of your poncho is I'm gonna join here right along this seam just because we already have a bunch of sewing happening and weaving in another end and having our join right here is gonna be less noticeable than starting in a random spot so pick a singham joining your own
to the end of it chain 1 and start single crocheting now I'm zooming in here so that you can see where exactly I'm single crocheting you're gonna be working both into the rough edge of a panel and into the top stitches of the panel but don't be alarmed it's fairly straightforward no matter which way you go now here with the single crochets in order to keep everything nice and straight I'm going to be stitching basically three times three single crochets into the end of each two row repeat so just like how I talked about with when you are working
into that rough edge on the neckline where every row of double crochet and lace rows a lace row and a double crochet row you should have three stitches now when you get to a corner we're going to work three single crochets into the corner itself to turn that corner and keep everything nice and angular now here once I've turned the corner I'm going to be working down the foundation chain of my panel so I'm just gonna work one single crochet into each stitch of that foundation chain nice and easy it'll keep everything nice and flat
and pretty once I finish up with this foundation chain I will continue on with the other rough edge of my other panel again rough edges here with single crochet little tricky but however you can stitch it to get it to lie flat is perfect for me I'm gonna be working about three single crochets among each tube or repeat so go ahead and just continue this along this is how it should be looking everything should be laying nice and flat and once you've finished up single crocheting all the way around where you started you're gonna slip stitch to join you're gonna
chain up one and you're gonna single crochet again all the way around until you have finished to complete rounds of single crochet all the way around those edges now remember that first round you got three single crochets in each corner that you turn there should be two corners and then in that second round I didn't do anything special in the corners I just worked one simple single crochet in each stitch all the way around so now that that's done I've finished off that edging I still have to weave those ends that you see but this
is how your poncho should be looking all we have left to do is that style fringe unless you don't want any fringe then you are done my friend but this is how your poncho should look you should have a nice clear edge defined on those panels that we sewed together this is how the front kind of point should be looking since we did that three single crochet increase on that point on the first row or round of edging and then the member the second round of edging is just gonna get one single crochet in each stitch including the corners so after you weave those ends we're ready
for our tassel style fringe now you are gonna need quite a bit of yardage left over to accomplish this fringe but it's really easy to make and I think it adds a nice finishing touch so here you can see I have quite a few little tassels done and what I'm doing is I'm just skipping three stitches we're working off of those edging hemline edging stitches I'm skipping three stitches in between each tassel now if you wanted to kind of stretch this and do fewer tassels that take less yarn you could just do every four or five stitches it's really up to
you but I skipped three in between each tassel now what I'm gonna do is I'm going to wrap the yarn around my four fingers here one two three four five and six times so once you've wrapped around six times I'm going to slip that loop of yarn off of my fingers holding the top steady so it doesn't unravel I'm gonna snip my yarn from the ball and I'm going to also use those scissors to cut that loop in half right there at the bottom so hopefully you can see what I'm doing there just snip all those strands so now
we should have twelve strands or twelve ends I should say there's six strands but twelve end so we're going to form that into a little loop here you use your hook to pull the center of those six strands through your stitch so here's my last tassel and then count over one two three and into that fourth one I'm going to insert my hook from back to front I'm gonna put that loop over my hook pull it pretty tight and then pull it through that stitch you may have to do a little wiggling to get all those strands to come through nicely now pull that
loop partially through the stitch don't pull it all the way out we want those tails hanging out there and now we need the tails to go down and through so I'm going to gently bring my fingers through that loop make sure not to yank those tails through the stitch and I'm going to just pull those tails down and through tighten up that tassel so that things don't come and done and then your tassel is done now we just need to trim it to size I left these probably about two-and-a-half inches long but I didn't measure all of them I kind
of eyeballed it you definitely could if you wanted everything to be perfect but it's kind of a bohemian look that doesn't need to be exactly right to the millimeter but up to you every one is different I'm more I go with the flow kind of gal so go ahead and make as many tests as you like tie them all on and now your project is done and ready to wear I can't wait to see all of the ways that you guys wear your Poncho's make sure to tag me on social media so that I can see them at Sorella or join the Facebook group which I'll link in the description
