Some time ago I saw Attic24's
Lucy was making a poncho from a pattern in Simply Crochet magazine. However she was taking the "stringy" bits off the bottom section. I loved the photos she showed of the beginning of her poncho and decided that it would be a useful garment to have to keep me warm. I ordered some Drops Nepal yarn from here
and decided on my colour palette. I was finishing another project so didn't start doing this one for some time. Luckily it didn't take long and here it is .....
Sorry about the photo, it was blowing a gale (so hair everywhere, hence no face in the photo) and the garment is on a bit crooked.
I loved doing this project as the yarn was a delight to work with. It is aran weight, so size 6mm hook is used and the item grows really fast. I also like the ribbed cowl as it is super thick and warm.
Spring has sprung in Ireland, but there are still times when I am able to snuggle under my home made wooliness!

This is the original pattern and I left off the fringe and added more rows as per Attic24's Lucy did with hers.
