based on http://hassdesign.com/DeltaCrochetTechniques/, using two strands of double-knit (DK) thickness yarn with a N/10mm hook. Basically started it yesterday afternoon and finished it this afternoon. I'm debating about doing another one and partly sewing/crocheting them together into a big poncho...

Okay I made it into a poncho. it came out a *little* big for my 5'2" body but oh well. It certainly makes a statement I guess. I'd add fringe but I think it'd be in danger of dragging on the ground if I start adding on more things.

Might shorten up the neck hole too...

Edit again: Looking at it and feeling it, I'd rather have two shawls. I'm ripping out the seam holding them together now...

Great Job!! I was contemplating doing the same pattern,
but since I have to many other projects, it might take a while ;p
It looks very well done and the purple color is awesome!!
I like your idea on making another one to make a poncho out of.
The only thing that I can think of to make a poncho better,
is going over the top end in sc to firm it up a bit, but your the designer,
and it would be awesome for you to post a pic if you do decide
to make it into a poncho!

That pattern is great! I'll have to give it a try sometime ^^
