Poncho Crochet Instructions

Poncho Crochet Instructions: "In this technique, a background fabric is stretched taut on a fra me. The working thread is held underneath the fabric. A needle with a hook is inserted downward and a loop of the working thread drawn up through the fabric. With the loop still on the hook, the hook is then inserted a little farther along and another loop of the working thread is drawn up and worked through the first loop to form a chain stitch. The tambour hooks were as thin as sewing needles, so the work must have been accomplished with very fine thread. "

Crocheting a bag or top is always fun. It is amazing how old a skill crocheting is. It is something that has been passed down from generation to generation. I love how hand crocheted and/or knitted garments look and especially how happy I am making them!
