Vibrant Crochet Comfort: The Palomine Poncho
Discover the Palomine Poncho, a burst of colour and crochet magic that works up quicker than you’d imagine, thanks to the secret ingredient – the hdc stitch!
Crochet Poncho for warmth
Inspiration can strike from unexpected places. The energy crisis led me to create the Palomine Poncho, a cosy and stylish solution to the chill. Just like many of us, we decided to dial down the heating. But maintaining warmth during long hours of crocheting was a challenge. Wearing two jumpers wasn’t practical, and draping a blanket around my shoulders felt restrictive and uncomfortable. I needed a crochet companion that added warmth without sacrificing mobility.
The Palomine Poncho: Your Crafting Ally
The Palomine Poncho is like a trusty friend, a small blanket with thoughtfully designed openings that keep you comfortably mobile while you crochet. It’s a warm and welcoming hug that never hinders your creative flow. No more compromises between coziness and freedom!
Customize Your Crochet Experience
Starting from the bottom, the Palomine Poncho offers flexibility in length – add extra rows to your liking. Perfect for advanced beginners, the pattern primarily features double crochet, half double crochet, and single crochet stitches. A helpful photo tutorial makes the process even smoother. Sure, there will be a few ends to weave in, but that’s just a small step towards the final masterpiece.
This crochet wonder predominantly showcases the versatile half double crochet stitch. Its smoothness, ease, and speed make it my all-time favourite stitch. But that’s not all – the textured charm comes from double crochet stitches worked in the back loop on subsequent rows.
Colorful Creativity with Hobbii Amigo Yarn
Enter Hobbii’s No Shades Of Grey challenge – the perfect match for my poncho vision! The vibrant Hobbii Amigo, a DK weight acrylic yarn, became my yarn of choice. With a feather-soft touch and airy volume, it’s a dream to work with. Crafted from 100% high-quality HB acrylic, it’s available in an array of colours to suit any palette.
Behind the Scenes: HB Acrylic Magic
HB stands for High-bulk, a production technique that involves steam and pressure to make the fibers contract slightly, resulting in a lightweight and soft yarn. It’s not just comfortable to work with; it’s a delight to wear against your skin.

Whether you follow my colour scheme or create your own, this pattern promises comfort, style, and crochet joy. So, grab your yarn, your hooks, and get crocheting!
