Thirty-five years ago, an extremely patient, saint-of-a-woman taught me and ten or so other 8-year-old girls to crochet for our Bible School craft project. Somehow, that teacher retained her sanity and I retained a love for yarn. I took to the hook and have been crocheting ever since, making everything from doilies, to baby clothes, sweaters and footies, hats and scarves. After 20 years, I abandoned patterns and started experimenting with my own designs.
I'm a girly-girl in the extreme. I love pretty colors, soft textures, and anything that sparkles. So my idea of a good crochet project is a fun, feminine, flirty piece that feeds the fashionista in me!

The simple lattice-like lines, geometric shaping, and cool gray tones of this poncho combine to form a modern look. It's made from all basic stitches, making it easy enough for beginning crocheters. Best of all, it's made in one piece and works up quickly so you can crochet it in just a night or two.
Made from Caron Simply Soft, the materials are easy to find and inexpensive. This poncho should cost you less than $10!
The pattern includes several charts and diagrams to help you with construction.
