Camilia Poncho | Easy Crochet Poncho from Two Rectangles!

The Camilia Poncho keeps you warm and cozy with a pretty stitch pattern that’s easy to crochet! This crochet poncho is made simply with two rectangles and seamed.

I love a warm and cozy poncho to throw over your winter outfit. The Camilia is easy to style with virtually any outfit.

The Yarn

I’ve had a crochet poncho in mind for this Red Heart with Love yarn forever. Sometimes there’s just not enough time in the day to make all the things (but we try)!

Teal and all varieties of blue are a fav of mine. I’m drawn in to this texture and color combination here.

Color is one of my favorite things about Red Heart Yarns. You can be sure to find any color imaginable available, that’s so helpful when you have something specific in mind!

All that texture really makes the seam “work.”

I like how you can easily customize these rectangles for a shorter or an even longer length over your arms.

Here I have positioned the poncho so it sits back further, making the back length a little longer than the front. This is just related to how you where the neckline, so it’s easy to even up.

4/5X 56”/142cm-62”/158cm.

Adjustments

To adjust the length of your rectangle, start with a stitch multiple of 3, plus 2. You can add/subtract 3 to my starting change. This will make your poncho longer/shorter on your arms and from neck to hem.

To change the height of your rectangle, adjust the number of rows you repeat. I recommend stopping after a Row 7 repeat. This will make neck hole bigger/smaller and effect the overall size.

Level

Easy

Construction

This poncho is made from two crochet rectangles that are seamed together to form the neck hole. 

The number of stitches you begin with is the length of your rectangle. The number of rows you work is the height of your rectangle.

    If you would like to adjust the size of your rectangles, do so here. You can add or subtract rows to your liking. This measurement is from neckline down the arm, to the wrist. Once the rectangles are seamed this is where the width of the rectangle will lie on your body.

    Seaming Two blue textured crochet rectangles laid on wood floor ready to be seamed into poncho.Two crochet rectangles positioned in an L shape for first seam.

    Lay both rectangles out in front of you. Make sure they’re both going in the same direction-that one isn’t upside down. Place one vertical and one horizontal, so they form an L shape.

    On the WS, sew together where they meet. This will be the edge of one, and part of the last row on the other.

    Match up the top edge (1) to the top of the row of the horizontal rectangle (2).
