Springtime Poncho

Introduction

ponchoI designed this poncho for those of us who are a bit larger than the models in fashion magazines. If you are a bit ‘paunchy’ like me, this will be just the right size. If you’re not, you can still enjoy the pattern using a smaller hook or by following the diagram at the end of the instructions for a better fit. If you have very narrow shoulders I also suggest following the instructions in the diagram.
