Four Corner Virus Poncho


Hello everyone! I've finally finished the Four Corner Crochet Virus Poncho!! Yay! It has been one of those projects that I've been bumping to the side to make room for other works in progress, but now its done and so is the video tutorial. You can check that out HERE
Pattern NOW available!! It comes in three sizes, small medium and large.
My Ravelry HERE

This red or cranberry poncho is made with Red Heart with Love Yarn. It is a little bit chunky in my opinion, but still lovely, warm and so soft!  I used an H 5.00mm crochet hook and 5 of the 350 yard skeins. If you are going to make this poncho with the same kind of yarn I suggest getting 6-7 skeins just to be on the safe side. I am rather short (5.2) so I didn't have to make it very long.  This poncho can be very very long if you like!
Just keep building!

Now on to my pink variegated Poncho with a cowl style collar.....................

This is my FAVORITE! The yarn is very soft and a lighter yarn, still a worsted weight, but defiantly not as thick as the Red Heart.
So this lovely pinkness is Lion Brand Ice Cream Yarn. It comes is so many colors and I want to use them all for this project! :) This is Strawberry.
I used a 4.25mm Hook and about 6 of the 394 yard skeins. I made my cowl collar with 20 rows in front and back post half double crochet.

The lighter yarns make your poncho much more flowing. I also LOVE the super cozy cowl collar.
Snuggle into that on a rainy or snowy day with a good book or a crochet project and I'll promise happiness!

I hope you all enjoyed my YouTube Video. Please check it out if you haven't seen it yet :)

Have a lovely crochet day, Jonna


  1. I followed u from YouTube. I need a size of 14" from shoulder to knees (of the point of poncho) for a 2 yr old. Could u do a tutorial for a child?

    1. The smaller sizes are in my written patterns. Both the two corner and the 4 corner have smaller sizes in the patterns. I won't be doing a video but I can help you with the written patterns if you are not used to reading them.
      Thank you for commenting!

  2. I have a question can I do a different neck for example ch-21,blo,sc across and repeat this foe the hundred and eight sts,then slip st tog,and start poncho pattern from there? I watched four corner poncho. I really didn't care to much for a bulky neck. Your pattern is beautiful thanks for video.

    1. It is worth a try. I am happy you liked the video. You defiantly do not have to do a bulky neck line.

  3. Joanna, would you make a tutorial on this pattern?
    I would really appreciate it! Thank you.


    1. I will add this to my requests Ideas list! Thank you!!!

  4. Joanna Martinez if I turn it quarter of a turn will it hang square ?
