No Problem! :) I had alot of fun doing this, and Ms. Genevieve got tons of compliments at church yesterday.

Materials : Lion Brand Homespun (1 skein), Bernat Boa (1 skein), size I crochet hook, Size 10 needles


CO 32 stitches. Work in garter stitch (knit every row) until piece measures 16 inches. Join so that the piece looks like an L. Fold your L so that it looks like a V and join that side. [Video demo here. ~Amy] There you have your poncho.

To add trim: Use Bernat Boa and DC (double crochet) all around the edge.

That's all there is to it. :)

OOooh very nice!!! I did CO 32 stitches as a wild guess! I think my daughter is just a bit smaller than yours... so it should be good for this spring! Yay me!!! I have no idea how to crochet (yeah, I know I need to learn :roll: ) so I may have to leave that part off :? It's is very cute though!

To DC the fringe...grab yourself a size I crochet hook and make a loop and stick it on the hook. Then do the following:

- yarn over (just like you would in knitting)
- poke the hook through a hole somewhere
- grab the yarn on the other side with the hook
- pull that yarn through (you will have 3 loops on your hook now)
- YO (just like in knitting) and pull that loop that you just made through 2 of the loops on your hook. (it will leave you with 2 loops on the hook)
- YO , pull the loop you just made through the other 2. (you will have one left)

then just yarn over and poke it through another hole. Does that make sense? I'm willing to help if I can. Crochet is one of those things that once you see it done it's like "OH!". :lol:

Thanks YarnMommy!

Nuno, you could also add fringe, if double crochet is intimidating. Although I do love the look of that edging YarnMommy did! Nice touch YM! :)

When I get time to shoot more videos, I'll be making some on the crochet basics.

No, Amy... don't do crochet videos. You will give me yet *another* excuse to buy yarn. I've spent about $75 on needles and yarn and books in the last 3 weeks, thanks to you! Alllll your fault!
