The Perfectly Panache Chic Poncho is a one-size-fits-all design that features a turtleneck for warmth and maximum coziness. This intermediate pattern features gorgeous shell motifs and is worked up using basic single and double crochet stitches and is slightly oversized so it covers your arms. Make this in the featured rich purple shade, or choose your own color - this would look so great in a standard neutral that can go with anything in your closet!

This is just fab-u-lous! From a distance, it looks like material instead of a crochet item. I do not know if it is because of the color yarn or the type but this is really pretty. Not a fan of cowls but I think I would rock it in this design.

So elegant and refined! I see a lot of poncho patterns featured that look like a cozy blanket by the fire. But this one is suitable for the working woman at the office, or a night on the town with hubby or the girls. Simple to construct with just double and single crochets. And the COWL neck is just what I would want!

This Perfectly Panache Chic Poncho is well named! I love the look of this poncho, the color is right up my ally and there is nothing better then a poncho with a cowl. The written pattern right here on this page is well written and easy to understand and follow. I'm looking forward to wearing this one! Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet poncho pattern.

I looove this Perfectly Panache Chic Poncho. It is so elegant and regal! There's sonething about ponchos that make you look chic and fashionable. I want to make this in a different color thought other than purple.
