Learn to crochet this quick and easy crochet turtleneck poncho, perfect for throwing over a sweater or top during the cooler months ahead.
Designed with lots of texture and with a length you can fully customize to your own liking. With the added coziness of a big collar, this crochet poncho will make a great addition to your wardrobe.
The poncho is created by crocheting two identical panels that are sewn at the shoulders, with some ribbing along the sides before we finally add the collar. Each panel is worked from the bottom up, starting with the bottom ribbed edge, then we will crochet in our stitch pattern until we are satisfied with the length. Easy peasy!

The Harvest Turtleneck Poncho uses Lionbrand Heartland which is a weight 4 acrylic yarn. This yarn is quickly becoming one of my all time favorite yarns ever to use. Even though it is an acrylic yarn, it is super soft and has great stitch definition. There are lots of shades to choose from but the color I used was Yosemite. Doesn’t this color literally scream Fall? I’m simply in love with this shade and can already foresee myself purchasing lots more so I can make cardigans or sweaters.

** THIS WRITTEN PATTERN IS ACCOMPANIED WITH A FREE STEP BY STEP VIDEO TUTORIAL. SCROLL DOWN TO VIEW **
ROW 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each ch to end. Turn.
ROW 2: ch 1 sc in BLO in each st across. Turn.
Repeat row 2 until you have completed a total of 109(121, 133, 145).
Now working on the long side of the ribbing:
NEXT ROW: ch 1 make 109(121, 133, 145) sc evenly across. Turn.
NEXT ROW: ch 3(counts as dc) dc in next 5 sts, ch 1, skip 1, *dc in next 5 sts, ch 1, skip 1, rep from * across ending with 6 dc. Turn.
NEXT ROW: ch 1 sc in next 6 sts, ch 1, skip ch1-sp, *sc in next 5 sts, skip ch1-sp, rep from * across ending with 6 sc. Turn.
NEXT ROW: ch 3 *dc/FPTC2TOG, dc in next 3 sc, FPTC/TC2TOG, ch 1, skip ch1-sp, rep from * across ending last rep at dc/FPTC2TOG, dc in next 3 sc, FPTC/TC2TOG, dc in last st. Turn.
NEXT ROW: ch 1 sc in next 6 sts, *ch 1 skip ch1-sp, sc in next 5 sts, ch 1, skip ch1-sp, rep from * across ending with 6 sc. Turn.
Rep last 2 rows until panel measures 23(24, 25, 26) inches long. Feel free to add more rows here but make sure to end on a sc row. Fasten off leaving a long tail. Now go ahead and make second panel using the same method.
ROW 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each ch to end of row. Turn.
ROW 2: ch 1 sc in BLO in each st across to end of row. Turn.
Repeat row 2 until collar measures approximately 20 inches long.
Slst ends together to create a “tube”. Fasten off leaving a long tail.
Lay one of your panels on a flat surface with the right side facing up. Now lay the second panel on top of it with the right side facing down.
With 2 stitch markers mark out the centre 10 inches of the poncho. These centre 10 inches will be the neck opening. Feel free to make it smaller or bigger but you will have to adjust the length of your collar to fit.
With a yarn needle and your tail ends seam across the shoulders.
Next sew your collar to the poncho making sure the poncho is wrong side facing out.
With the right side of the poncho facing out attach yarn to one of the bottom corners.
Ch 1 and sc all the way around until you reach the other side.
Now you need to plan out where your buttonholes will be. For me I counted 11 sc from where my hook is now, placed my first stitch marker there, counted another 11-12 sc from that stitch marker and placed my second stitch marker, then counted another 11-12 sc and placed the third stitch marker. Where you place your stitch marker is entirely up to you.
NEXT ROW: ch 8, sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each of next 6 chains, slst into each of next 2 sc (on the main body of poncho), turn, skip over 2 slsts, *sc in BLO in next 7 sc, ch 1 sc in BLO in each of next 7 sc, slst in each of next 2 sc (on main body of poncho, turn, rep from * until you reach your first stitch marker, then sc in BLO in next 3 sc, ch 1, skip 1, sc in BLO in each of next 3 sc, **ch 1, turn, sc in next 7 sts, slst in each of next 2 sc (on main body), turn, sc in BLO in next 7 sc, rep from ** until second stitch marker. Rep what you did for the first stitch marker and continue on until you have made your third button hole in the same way.
Once all buttonholes have been created simply continue on working the ribbing as normal until you reach the other side. Fasten off.
Repeat this entire process for the other side of poncho.
You are now finished creating your Crochet Harvest Turtleneck Poncho.
