That makes this chunky cropped, 3/4 length sleeve sweater just as fun to make as it is to wear.
All you need is your favorite super bulky weight yarn, a 11.5mm (US P) crochet hook and a few removable stitch markers.

From the Designer: I don't know about you but I may be, what you'd call, garment avoidant. Don't get me wrong, I love garments... I love sweaters, wraps, cardigans, kimonos. all of them. And I especially like ponchos. However, I almost never make them because they take FOREVER to finish... and being a plus sized girl, I can never be sure they're going to fit right. That's why I designed this fastest and easiest crochet poncho pattern ever.
This pattern works up in a matter of hours and can be easily adjusted for petite or plus sized needs. And, while I don't usually recommend that crochet sellers make garments (because they're just not cost effective), this design just might be the perfect addition to your craft fair inventory.
Super bulky, soft, and super-duper cozy, this poncho is the perfect pattern to whip up as a quick gift or something special just for you to wear everywhere.. introducing, the Everywhere Poncho.
