When it comes to crochet you can easily find an item online or in stores that looks crocheted but it may be imported from a factory in another country.  If you want something handmade from yarn made in the USA it's best to either crochet your own or purchase one from an independent artist.

This way you will get the quality you are looking for.  If you are looking for inspiration or enjoy crocheted items at discounted prices there are several lovely items you can find. A crocheted or knitted poncho is a comfortable item that can be worn during the summer or in the fall and spring.  Take a look at some of the items compared below that you can make or purchase for crochet ponchos.
