Fine Celebration Crochet Poncho

by Kristin Omdahl

This is such a popular silhouette and for good reason! The peekaboo crochet poncho is figure flattering, can be worn in a variety of ways, and for a variety of occasions. Dress it up for a night on the town with a monochromatic silhouette of strappy tank and slim pants or take it to the beach for the cutest coverup under the sun! This stunner is worked identically on both sides. Each side starts with a large triangle to which two smaller triangles are added at either side to form a rectangle. Wear it front to back, side to side, belted, or with ties laced up the sides for kimono sleeves (this option can be side to side or front to back as well). The possibilities are endless!

Thank you for choosing to knit and crochet Kristin Omdahl patterns!

I know that you have thousands of choices for buying yarn and body care products. I want you to know what makes MY products special, and feel good about shopping the Kristin Omdahl brand.

Kristin Omdahl products have a heart! That’s right, a portion of every sale supports the charity I established: Project Kristin Cares.

I am a survivor of domestic violence, a hugely hidden problem in our society. You, or someone you know, has been affected by it, or is still suffering now. Statistics show that 1 in 3 women, and 1 in 4 men have been victims of domestic violence during their lifetimes.

But because it is so rarely discussed, I always felt like I was alone. One of the worst parts for me was that feeling of loneliness and having a dirty secret that had to be hidden.

Through my charity, Project Kristin Cares, we can make a difference in the lives of people who have been affected by domestic violence. I want to share the message that victims are not at fault, not alone and should not be embarrassed to share their stories.

Kristin Omdahl products are beautiful, thoughtful and valuable. But even more importantly, every time you purchase a product from my company, a portion of the sale supports

Project Kristin Cares. Please help me knock out domestic violence, one sale at a time.

xoxo, Kristin
