Audra Crochet Motif Poncho and 2 BONUS Bag Free Patterns Page

Audra Crochet Motif Poncho and 2 BONUS Bag Free Patterns Page by Kristin Omdahl

This beautiful poncho combines two different sized and shaped motifs to create a blended lace fabric. The charts can also be used to create other projects with this fabric: afghans, scarves, rectangular shawls or beach bags.  Tie or sew the sides, leave them open or thread a belt through the center for a more fitted look. Belt and tassel tie instructions included in pattern. Also included are a large beach bag pattern showcasing the same motifs as the poncho, but with 5 colors instead of one! And the second bag pattern is a drawstring pouch for storing smaller items inside the larger bag. Written instructions and many detailed charts included throughout patterns.
