Introduction

ponchoI designed this poncho for those of us who are a bit larger than the models in fashion magazines. If you are a bit 'paunchy' like me, this will be just the right size. If you're not, you can still enjoy the pattern using a smaller hook or by following the diagram at the end of the instructions for a better fit. If you have very narrow shoulders I also suggest following the instructions in the diagram.

Materials List

  • 250grams (250meters) / 9ounces (2 1/3yards) of a chunky yarn (I used Papillon by SvartaFåret in festive red)
  • Q hook
  • Yarn needle

Wow, this looks like it will be fun to make and more so to wear. Now if I could only figure out where my favorite hook dissapeared to this time I'll get started.
