When the 14 y/o declared after the 1st day of school "If I don't have a poncho to wear skating on Friday I'll DIE, " I decided that my crocheting skill was actually a life saver & not just a hobby. So, here's my 1st attempt. It took me 2 1/2 days to work up the whole thing. I kind of like it - she loves it (plus now she won't die) - I'd like to make another & fine tune it a bit.

This particular pattern has a lot of options which I really liked. I used worsted weight Red Heart acrylic in pink & cream (it looks yellow in the pic-that's just the camera) & an I hook. I wanted to put fringe on it but she said "NO!" so here's the unfringed version.
and one more with the ever lovely & always photogenic model (who, thankfully, will live to see another day)
