Well the first poncho I did in the white is a worsted weight yarn.  The 2nd one is the homespun which is slightly thicker, similar I would say to a boucle?  They may have more info on the homespun at lionbrand.com.  And yes, I hadn't thought of it that way, but it is like a big long spiral going round and round, just move your marker so you know where the rounds start/stop.  Post a pic when you are done?  It is fun to see the different yarn types and colors.  And I never mentioned before, but Artzy I love the soft blue color of your poncho.  It is so pretty.

Thanks for answering, I was sitting at work staring at the pattern trying to visualise how you could crochet in a round without joining the last stich at all and getting in a right mental mess. If only my job was to be crafty all day....!

that's how i was exactly before I plunged into the project -- I couldnt believe it would work not joining the last stitch - but its' MUCH better that way because you see no lines at all like you sometimes do when you join rounds.  ..and yes!! please post a picture!

I think my yarn was 4 ply worsted ( am I even saying this right??) and my hook was a bigger one ( a P hook ).  The one I'm working on now is a vintage yarn w/no tags - but it looks like a thinner (2 ply) yarn and I choose a smaller hook and it's taking a bit longer because of it - but I love how it looks like this too.  I'll post a pic too when I'm finished Grin

Hi,  

ok so here is the finished article:-
     

I made it a bit longer than it said and didn't have enough yarn to do the 10 chain stitches for each bit of the fringe so I made a chain of 10 and then skipped two stitches. I think that I might try it again with a lighter weight and a bigger hook. I love the way it works in a round though, the pattern doesn't look too solid in a funny kind of way- it looks more like a mesh than rows of stitches.

Thanks for the help!

Hey Ratfink!  That turned out great!!  I love the beautiful color and I really love the way you did the edging!  And the flower is a great sdd-on.  Soooo Cute!  I feel like I have somehow started a crochet-along without trying to.  Cool.

These are all gorgeous! Well done! I have to admit that at first I wasn't sure about that pattern, it seemed a bit short for my tastes but I LOVE the ones you've all made.

OK, I'm totally freaking out! I followed this pattern's instructions to the letter and ended up with a ridiculous-looking, bulky thing that points out from my shoulders rather than draping down like your guys' did. I have no idea what went wrong! It's all rippled at the top. I used a fairly bulky yarn -- could that be why? HELP. Angry Angry Angry
