How to Crochet a Child's Poncho - 8 Quick and Easy Steps

8 Quick and Easy Steps to Make a Child's Poncho
Crochet Pattern

It's finally here! S[romg!   I've been wanting to crochet my little girl a poncho for the longest time.  So last week was the week.  This is my own design and I posted it on http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Crochet-a-Childs-Poncho-8-Quick-and-Easy/ because I've been trying to keep my own designs in one place. 

It took 3 balls of chunky yarn (see "Materials" in the doc) and about 6 hours.  If you're a faster crocheter than I am, you'll probably finish it up much quicker.
At any rate, I made a darling poncho for $12.00.  Maybe it should be called "The Recession Poncho!"

** NOTE:  Please come back and post a link to your poncho after making it!  I'd love to see other ones completed with different yarn **

My girls would love this! I'm a knitter, though, and they're asking for a little shrug right now. Soon....

I have a knitting/crochet party on my blog on Fridays, called Fibers on Friday. I'd love if you joined us and linked this project up!

Hey there! I think this will be the perfect gift for my niece. I love it...everything about it, color, design, everything! I have a yarn but it's a category 6, very soft but not a category 5 like I think the yarn is you used. So what I want to know is, how many inches is the neck around? My niece lives a state away from me so I can't hold a chain up to her to see if it will fit her right, and with me using a different weight yarn, I am uncertain as to how many inches long the neck is! HELP!

As many times as my mother tried to teach me to crochet, sadly, it never stuck. Otherwise, I'd love to make this sweet poncho!
