Welcome to The Purple Poncho – the inspiration of why I learned to crochet. I was introduced to crochet by my Grandma Mary when I was very young. She made me a purple poncho and I’ve been “hooked” ever since!

I like to design and work with unusual fibers and stitches to create unique jewelry, household items and classic accessories. Here you will find crochet patterns, link parties, crochet tips, flowers of the month and recipes.  Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!
