I knitted my daughters ponchos over the last few years.  And, my oldest wears one of hers quite a bit at school.

She is invited to a friend's b-day party tonight and the friend asked if her 'mommy could make me one of those'.  I didn't want to knit it, so I tried to crochet one (no pattern, just two rectangles attached, etc.).  Anyway - here it is......

Oh how cute, my first poncho I made my god daughter was with the two rectangles and I had a hard time with it even now I still do. The last one I made her and her sister is made with 4 big granny squares put together and the edging for the neck. I like yours and how it came out, did you have any problems with the rectangles?

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

That did turn out really cute! I love the neckline. the last one I made with 2 rectangles I totally botched because I tried to do the pattern from memory but I made the rectangles waaaay too long. I didn't discovered my mathematical error until after I had put the pieces together and the neck hole was big enough to make it a skirt. I had to take it apart and frog the last 10 in. of each piece. It ended up turning out after that...

Wow, that reminds me of the first poncho I made my daughter! Two rectangles just like yours with some edging. I think I still have it in my memory trunk. *chuckle*

Great job! I hope her friend really likes it!
