Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I'd be willing to take on this project, for sure! Besides the fact that I only need 6 balls of yarn, there are only 30 rows in this intricate poncho pattern. It is suitable for fall, winter, and spring! It looks smart with the business/office attire in the photo. A word of caution- keep your place while you are in the depths of this pattern. There are a lot of "stars".

Oh my what a beautiful Poetry Poncho this one is! I love it! After reading the written pattern, it sounds like it will come together very nicely. I'm happy to see the pattern is right here on this page and I have saved this one and have it on my must do list. I can see this one being worn on a cool summer night. Not to sure what color I want to do mine in just yet? My mind is racing on doing this one.. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

This is gorgeous! I think I'm going to try to make this for my grandma. For Christmas :)
