I used the Town and Country Poncho pattern from lionbrand.com for this one:
I scored the yarn in the Christmas Clearance section at Walmart, it is Caron Simply Soft Christmas White with gold foil woven in.

OHHHHH.... I have been wanting to make a poncho like that...and and oh oh  I also hit the jackpot at Walmart yesterday. First the yarn was 50% off..... went to the price scanner to scan a few other items.... scanned a skein of yarn......it was now  75% off!!  I flew back to the clearance aisle and grabbed the whole box the yarn was in.  Ummmmmm  errrrrrrrrr  (I am so pathetic ok?) 42 skeins!!!  And I wasnt sure what I was going to use the yarn for....but your poncho looks so pretty with that yarn!!  Thanks!!!  Do you remember how many skeins it took to make the poncho?

It took about 3 1/2 of those small 3oz. skeins and I made the M/L size version of the poncho.

No, it was actually really easy and fast.  It is all just HDC and you use a large hook so it works up quickly.  I have made a couple since then, it is a great pattern!!

thanks for the quick reply  Smiley  I noticed the pattern works in rounds..it said "Do not join, but mark end of rnd by placing contrasting thread between the last and first sts. Do not turn."  how do you keep going w/out joining it?  I've never worked in rounds so Im completely not seeing/understanding how this works........?

thanks for any help u might be able to provide Wink

I use a safety pin with a long red thread to mark the end of the round and then just stitch right into the next st as if it were still the same row.  Just keep going around this way as if one big long row and move your marker up each time you come to it.  Does this help, make sense??

wow. that color is great ! i'm more excited than ever to try this pattern.  Thanks for explaining the rounds thing to me.  i think i've got it.  I've been reading the pattern in more depth ( I've only ever followed very basic patterns for scarves etc., and I dont quite understand this row:)

Rnd 3 and all odd rnds Hdc in each st around.


what does it mean when they say "and all odd rnds" ?

I'm probably driving you nuts w/all these questions - but I really want to make this and not realize 1/3 of the way through that I've totally flubbed it up  Wink

thanks  Smiley

No Problem!! Basically on the even number rounds you will be increasing stitches as the pattern reads,  and on the odd number rounds (3,5,7,9, etc.)  you just do a regular row of HDC without adding any stitches.  Keep asking questions, I don't mind and it's a good way to learn.  Wink
