The Lucky Penny Crochet Poncho Pattern in Child sizes is here!!! I seriously love ponchos, don’t you? They are perfect year round. Not sure what I mean? When Spring is here and it’s too cold for a t-shirt, but too warm for a coat, the Jessica Poncho has you covered! When you just need something over your shoulders to beat the chill from the a/c, what about the Whitby Ponchette? And let’s not forget about Ragged Falls Poncho, perfect for the transition back to colder temps. This of course leads me to the Lucky Penny Poncho. The perfect cold weather friend. The squishy yarn, dense fabric, and cushiony cowl make this a go-to design for Winter.
