Pattern Description:

I know what you're thinking: "a PONCHO?!?! Are you kidding me with this, Shannon??" You know, I'm really not. I had my reservations, as well, but I've really fallen hard for this poncho, and will totally wear the heck out of it. Just so you know, everyone else I have shown this to is mad about it, too, and I hope you all agree. It's really a knitter's poncho, perfect for chilly nights on the couch OR out on the town.
