Granny Square Poncho: Size 12-18 months {Free Crochet Pattern}

I recently made this cute little granny square poncho for my 1 year old daughter. I paired the poncho with a modified version of my Preemie Headband 1.

I was making a rainbow colored granny square for my Classic Granny Square Stitch Tutorial, and figured I would make a few more! I made six or seven of them, but this poncho only used four.
(I will be sharing what I did with the others, soon.)

This poncho is incredibly easy to make. It is a matter of making the 4 granny squares and sewing them together. That's it.  You could add a simple trim around the neck, but it isn't necessary.

The headband modifications were very easy, too. I used an I hook instead of the F, and I made it larger. (Check out my Hat and Headband Size Chart if you need a reference). I also used the Deluxe Loopy Flower Applique, instead of the simple one. That's it.
This adorable little set can be worked up in one afternoon!

    1. I'm sorry, we don't have a video. Is it the layout,- or the joining of squares that is giving you trouble? There are lots of videos on Youtube that help with the joining of squares. As for the layout, look at the photo, and lay your squares out as in the photo, then see where the sides are labeled A and A, B and B, etc? Try tying a tag or piece of tape with the letters on those sides so that when you pick it up, the sides are still marked, and easier to match up. Hopefully this helps! :)
