Is it a poncho, a kaftan, a tunic or a slanket? It doesn’t really matter because it’s crochet, it’s super cosy, it’s practical and it’s your new lounge wear favourite!

Skill Level & Special Stitches
This pattern is suitable for a beginner with some experience and uses US Crochet Terminology.
This uses the extended double crochet stitch and foundation double half double crochet stitch – both of which are explained within the pattern download.
Yarn: 600g / 1650yds (1500m) DK yarn in the main colour (blue) and about 50g / 190yds (175m) of the second colour (grey). I used Women’s Institute Premium Acrylic DK in Blue and Grey for the item pictured.
Other: Yarn needle & scissors, 6 buttons of your colour choice.
The pattern is one size, 30in long x 23in wide at the bottom and 30in wide across the shoulders, but can be easily adjusted by changing the length of the foundation chain (guidance is given in pattern)
Worked from the bottom, ‘up and over’, this easy make will keep you super cosy through the winter days and summer nights.
And the best thing? It has a huge pocket. I am a pocket lover and a poncho lover but you don’t often find the two combined!
