Bohemian Kimono Poncho
This pattern is a fun take on the poncho that is light, airy and quick to make. It only uses 3 stitches. This poncho is the perfect cold office companion for those who don't want to wear a parka to work. Oh, I guess that’s just me.
I also was looking for a way to use up 2 different colored skeins to see how well the colorways would blend and as you can see I think they blend very well. This is the perfect design for those who have single skeins and looking for a project that won’t take you too long to make.
That pattern is just 2 rectangles sewn partially together. Add fringe and you have a very bohemian style poncho.
I’d love to see your version on Ravelry and Instagram. Just tag me (@nettagyrl) on Instagram and hashtag my blog name #oliveandbrook.
This project will probably take about 5+ hours.

No gauge given as this pattern is very forgiving.
Make 2 rectangles
Row 1 Ch 73, dc in 3rd ch from hook
Row 2 Ch 5 (counts as tc and ch-1 here and throughout) sk a stitch, tc ch-1 in next stitch until the end. You will end with a tc in the last stitch. Turn.
Row 3 Ch 5, tc in tc of previous row, ch-1, tc ch-1 all the way to the end. Turn.
Row 4 Ch 5, tc in tc of previous row, ch-1, tc ch-1 all the way to the end. Turn.
Row 5 Ch 3, dc in each stitch including the ch-1 spaces to the end. Turn
Row 6 Ch 5, sk a stitch, tc ch-1 until the end. You will end with a tc in the last stitch. Turn.
Row 7 Ch 5, tc in tc of previous row, ch-1, tc ch-1 all the way to then. Turn.
Row 8 Ch 5, tc in tc of previous row, ch-1, tc ch-1 all the way to the end. Turn.
Repeat rows 5-8 until you get to 65 rows or end with a row 5 (dc row). Fasten off.
Take a contrasting color and starting on the short side of the rectangle, attach yarn and sc until you get to first corner. Add 3 sc in the corner. You will now be working on the long side of the rectangle. 1 sc in the dc’s and 3 sc in the tc’s. Do this until you get to the next corner. Add 3 sc in that corner, then sc on the short side of the rectangle. Add 3 sc in the corner. You will now be working on the long side of the rectangle. Sc in the dc’s and 3 sc in the tc. Do this until you get to the next corner. Add 3 sc in that corner. Do this for both rectangles. Fasten off.
Attach the two rectangles
Match up the rectangles and slip stitch or sc the pieces together for 37 rows. Fasten off.
To finish off, starting at the bottom corner of the poncho right side facing you, attach yarn and sc around the whole piece, with 3 sc in each corner. When you get to the middle neck part of the poncho, do a 3 sc decrease. Once you complete the sc edging fasten off and weave in all the ends.
