Celtic Crochet Poncho

A Celtic crochet poncho made in light purple with celtic knot motifs at the top and lacy crochet stitches along the bottom modeled on a mannequin

Celtic Crochet Poncho

This Celtic crochet poncho is one of my favorite Celtic garments I have designed so far. The V-neck yoke and lacy stitching makes for a very flattering poncho that can be worn all year long. I also love how a poncho like this is easy to wear because it is light weight, stays in place and fits sizes small, medium and large! I am calling this lacy wrap “The Celtic Heart Poncho” and have just added the pattern to my Etsy Shop here.

Celtic Knot Motifs

There are several Celtic Knot motifs in this Celtic crochet poncho that are all identical and made with only basic crochet stitches. Each Celtic Knot features 4 intertwined hearts that are easy to create with basic stitches and a clear diagram. To make each knot you first crochet a simple cord and then you weave that cord into the Celtic Knot. The instructions include an actual size printable color-coded knot diagram to help you create the knot center. Plus, there are 2 versions of this Celtic Knot diagram! One for Right-Handers and one for Left-Handers. Since Left-Handers crochet in the opposite direction from Right-Handers, this can make it difficult for them to weave the knot with the regular diagram. So, no need to stress if you are a Leftie! Having the correct diagram at your finger tips will help you be successful so that you can make this beautiful poncho.

Supplies for the Celtic Crochet Poncho

(Please note many of the links in this post are affiliate links)

This Celtic crochet poncho project uses about 500 yards of cotton DK weight (Size 3) yarn. I crocheted my poncho with Omega’s “Fontana” yarn that you can find here at Creative Yarn Source. I love the pretty lilac color. I also used a small amount of a dark purple cotton yarn to add some contrast to the knot cords and the top of the poncho yoke. So, if you would like that detail, too you’ll want to have a small amount of a contrasting (or complimentary) color on hand. I used a size 3.75mm (F) crochet hook and some faceted beads. The beads are optional but I always love to add a little sparkle to my crochet projects. I explain where and how to add them in the pattern. You’ll also need a few knot weaving supplies to make the Celtic crochet poncho. I recommend an 8″ x 8″ (or bigger) square of corkboard, about 20 straight sewing pins and a tapestry needle.

Sizes and Measurements for the Celtic Crochet Poncho

The poncho is one size that fits small, medium and large with explanations on how to make slightly smaller or larger if need be. Each motif is about 5″ x 5″ and the center length of the poncho is about 15″. I have tried this poncho on several different people of various sizes and it looks great on all of them!
