Is it just me, or do you think ponchos are taking the "in" spot in crochet apparel this season?  Everywhere I look lately, I see ponchos!  Especially the sort of Bohemian style poncho... ah, maybe that's what it is!  This particular poncho is very "boho", with it's rustic plaid design and it's fringes.

Easy Basic Boho Hood -free crochet pattern-


You can do so many things with a basic crochet hood!  You can give it braids, buttons, beads, add ears, horns, eyes, pom poms, and so much more. I've been making a few hoods lately, and this is the pattern for its basic structure. I added big wooden beads onto the braids of mine to give it bit of a Bohemian vibe. I really love my basic hood pattern because it is not flat at the back, however instead, it sort of butterflies out and around the shoulders, so that there is no bulkiness behind the neck. This pattern is super easy!  It consists of half double crochet, chains, and a bit of reverse single crochet for the border.

I love the color changes taking place in this beautiful crochet infinity scarf!  What's great about this design, is that it actually doesn't require several different color changes and yarn; but it's done by using one yarn with a gradient color change on it's own.

All Wrapped Up Infinity Scarf -free crochet pattern-


Now here's a clever idea!  Use two colors of yarn and knot them to create a beautiful infinity scarf. The scarf itself is a fairly easy pattern, and the designer includes a video tutorial on how to knot the scarf. Chunky yarn is used for this design, but it would be very easy to change it up with a different yarn weight as well. And the color... I have to mention the colors, I love these colors!  Mixing a bright with a dark really shows off the knot.
