CrochetKim Free Crochet Pattern | Lunar Crossings Poncho @crochetkim

Materials

Red Heart “With Love” in color papaya was used in the sample.

Since this is a border, you would use whatever hook and yarn works with your project.

In order to make the initial base for the border shown here, I used the first five rounds of the Lunar Crossings Square Blanket HERE.

Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDF's of my patterns. You can, of course, view, print ,paste to a word processor, convert to PDF's, etc, on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out if they want. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
