Finished Project: Crochet Pastel Poncho

Hi all,
  I just had to share my latest finished project.  :)  I made my DD a soft, fluffy poncho.  It was surprisingly easy.  I had a ball doing it. My daughter likes it so much, that I'll most likely be making more of these.

  I found the pattern here.  I used Bernat Baby Boucle' yarn in Violet Blossom.

 








  So here I am with a sense of satisfaction, and wanting to crochet more in 80 degree weather!  Oh well, I guess we'll be ready for next winter. ;)

  What craft projects have you been working on lately?  I'd love to see them!  I enjoy looking at all types of crafts, or repurposed items, so feel free to share. :)

I hope you all have a great day!

Jennifer

The poncho turned out beautifully!! I so wish I knew how to crochet or knit and could teach my girls. Are you available for lessons? ;)

How long did the project take you? My eleven year old is all about the poncho - I just don't want to lay out the $20 for the one she wants. Thanks for including the link to the instructions.

Andrea,
Thank you so much! I guess I've moved up just a little from a beginner. :)

I worked on it here and there when I had a free moment. It's an easy pattern to follow, so if I devoted more time, I could get it done in a few afternoons. I'm still pretty slow. ;)

Cute poncho. I haven't progressed past scarves myself. Maybe just one hundred more and I'll venture out :)

Nicki Woo,
You could do it! The pattern is really easy to follow. :)
