Can someone help me find This pattern for free? I'm way too poor to be buying patterns, so usually I find them on the internet. I can't find this one, though, and I can't figure out what the stitches are or I'd try to make it myself.

it's a happy day

I am pretty sure that one has been asked about a million times and everyone gets the same answer...buy the pattern.  I bought the pattern and have yet to make it because I can't afford the yarn to make it with.   I really do suggest that if you are too poor to buy the pattern, then you are too poor to make this poncho b/c the yarn it is made from is about $15/skein.  I am not saying that to be crappy, I only tell you b/c I wish someone would have told me! LOL Smiley Good Luck!

Ditto what twintoo said (think I might have said it to her in a thread as well, actually). The woman who designs the stuff at Stitch_Diva usually has pretty good sustitutions for her yarns, but I don't know about this one. When I made the Newlywed shawl, I used a worsted weight cotton yarn and it cost about $30 all told. My sister made this one using Crystal Palace's ribbon yarn (not sure of the name) for substantially less.

Good night! what kind of yarn is it, spun gold? . . .  Thanks for the advice, though.  I've found that I rarelly use the yarn a pattern calls for and it usually turns out fantastic.

I just ordered a downloadable pattern from Stitch Diva on eBay this week - thanks to reading everyone's recommendations on how great they are! When I opened the PDF file they sent, I was pleased to see that there was some info about substitution yarns included in the pattern instruction. Also included were recommendations on where to find the yarn for cheaper than retail (at elann.com).

You can always go to the library and get knitting/crochet books that have patterns in them.

Actually, I never asked about the patterns here b/c everyone else already had! LOL  I already knew the answer would be..buy the pattern!   Grin 

Like the others said, there are some alternative yarns on the list but I don't know what you classify as expensive.  I am just so used to buying Red Heart! LOL  Besdies that, I am from a really rural area and all we have are Hobby Lobby and WalMart so anything good I have to order online and that stinks!  Smiley

Know what you mean . . . we just got an A. C. Moore here in the Poconos and I think I have died and gone to heaven. I just bought Caron Super Soft for another Newlywed Shawl for all of $15 so it truly is what you make of it as far as yarn goes.

Hi, I know this is a bit of an old thread but that poncho is just a really wide and extra long rectangle folded over and sewn along the top, leaving part of it open for the head and then various fringe added. Using a large hook and fancy yarn and probably some changes inbetween either double or triple crochet stitches.
