About Sampler Poncho

Difficulty Level

Difficulty level of the squares range from Level 1 Beginner to Level 3 Intermediate.

Difficulty level for the poncho assembly is Level 2 Advanced Beginner/Easy.

Advanced Beginner


There is no overall gauge for these instructions.

Gauges for individual squares are provided in the square pattern instructions.

Finished Dimensions (in inches)

Each square pattern (see the Sampler Poncho CAL event page) provides instructions for a 7″x7″ square and an 8″X8″ square.

The poncho can be made in two sizes – small and large – that works for all sizes XS – 5X. Thus, it is a “two-sizes fit all” project.

***You will need to duplicate 6 squares of your choice to assemble the poncho. So, make one each of 18 squares and make 2 each of 6 squares for a total of 30 squares.

Extra small (XS), Small (S), Medium (M), and Large (L) = Small Poncho; make 30 – 7″ x 7″ squares.

Small Poncho finished dimensions are 32″ from shoulder to tip not including trim. Arm length is 20″ not including trim.

Extra large (XL), 1X, 2X, 3X, 4X, 5X = Large Poncho; make 30 – 8″ x 8″ squares.

Large Poncho finished dimensions are 36″ from shoulder to tip not including trim. Arm length is 23″ not including trim.

NOTE: Trim adds approximately 0.5″ around bottom of the poncho and around the neckline of the poncho.

Pattern Notes:

Read all pattern notes, instructions, and other provided details carefully before starting the project to make sure you understand everything.  It could save you hours & a lot of headaches!

  • Make a swatch that measures at least 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 inches using the stitch provided under the Gauge Section. If your swatch matches the gauge, then you are all set to start the project. If the gauge is wrong, you might need to change your crochet hook – increase your hook size if your stitches are smaller & decrease your hook size if your stitches are larger.
  • All measurements given are unblocked and measured flat pre-wear and pre-seaming as fabric pieces may stretch during/after blocking, wearing, and seaming.
  • Provided measurements are as exact as possible, but are given as approximates. This is because yarn variances, crochet tension, & individual technique might give variations in the result, which changes from person to person.
  • The same size poncho may fit differently depending on each individual due to differences in individual body measurements.
  • All seaming is done using the whip stitch. You can find a tutorial HERE.
  • The trim requires crocheting continuously, this means that there will be NO joining at the end of each round, or turning and chaining.
  • Some squares may stretch upon wear of the poncho, particularly around the shoulder areas.
  • Stitch counts are given in ( ) at the end of each row. If no stitch count is given, then the count is the same as the previous row.
  • Care Instructions: Hand wash & lay flat to dry or follow instructions on the yarn label.

Step 8. Attach yarn using a slp-st where indicated by the black circles in Figure 5, sc into the same st as the slp-st and each st around until you get back to the start. Sc2tog the stitches on each side of a seam (do not work into the seams) and work 3 sc into the st at the bottom point of the poncho indicated by the number 3 in Figure 5 below. If you sc across a raw edge, the number of sts does not matter, but be sure to place your sts evenly.
