Winterland

Free Crochet Pattern

Winterland

How often do you wish for something soft, warm, and pillowy to get you through the drudge of the cold, harsh winter months? I know I’m always bundling up in a cowl or scarf or poncho, or if I’m spending the day at home, under a blanket. For this winter, I wanted a new little piece of warmth and comfort, and the Winterland ponchette is what I came up with for us. Winterland is like a bowl of steaming soup, with a warm slice of freshly baked and buttered bread on the side. Comfort yarn, if you will. The cables are simple enough to not cause trouble, and the bulky-weight yarn and large hook mean you’ll finish in no time. We all deserve a little comfort.  #HumansThatYarnWeC21

Winterland

Gauge:  10 st x 5 rows = 4” in patt, blocked

NOTES:
~ Joining at the end of each round is always done with a slip stitch in first stitch.
~ Stitch counts at the end of each row include ch-1 sp as a stitch.

~ I made mine a “shorty” style poncho, but you may add another ball of yarn and make yours as long as you want.

~ To increase circumference, simply add one (or two) more increase rounds before working Round 8.

Let's Do It!

Pattern:

Fsc 48. Join.

1) Sdc, dc, ch 1, *dc 3, ch 1; rep from * to last st, dc in last st. Join.  = 64 st

2) Sdc, dc in same st, *sk 1, fpTreb around next st, ch 1, fpTreb around skipped st, 2 dc in next st; rep from * around, omitting final 2 dc. Join.  = 80 st

3) Sdc, dc in same st, dc, *sk 1, fpTreb around next st, ch 1, fpTreb around skipped st, 2dc in next st, dc in next st; rep from * around, omitting final 3 dc. Join.  = 96 st

4) Sdc, dc, 2 dc, *sk 1, fpTreb around next st, ch 1, fpTreb around skipped st, dc 2, 2dc; rep from * around, omitting final 4 dc. Join.  = 112 st

5) Sdc, dc 2, 2dc, *sk 1, fpTreb around next st, ch 1, fpTreb around skipped st, dc 3, 2dc; rep from * around, omitting final 5 dc. Join.  = 128 st

6) Sdc, *sk 2, fpTreb around next st, ch 1, fpTreb around first skipped st, dc; rep from * around, omitting final dc. Join.  = 144 st

7) Sdc, dc in same st, *sk 2, fpTreb around next st, ch 1, fpTreb around skipped st, 2dc; rep from * around, omitting final 2 dc. Join.  = 160 st

Here is where you can adjust circumference by adding another round (or two) of increases. Continue in the same manner in which we have been increasing. No problem!

8) Sdc, dc, *sk 2, fpTreb around next st, ch 1, fpTreb around skipped st, dc 2; rep from * around, omitting final 2 dc. Join.

9-19) Rep Round 8

And here is where you can make it longer, if you want. Just add another ball of yarn and keep going until length desired. Super easy, right?

21) Ch 1, sc in each st and ch-1 sp around. Join.

Cut yarn, weave in ends. Block.
