Posh Poncho - Stash Buster - Project #13

Yesterday, in the early evening, I had Big Daddy take me to see my niece, Pattycake.  She's a real sweetheart and also a very willing participant when it comes to modeling my crochet items.  She LOVED the Posh Poncho and I took several photos of her modeling it.
 Here she her first pose.
 A bit of a twirl.
 A small nod to the crowd.
And the grand finale.
The pattern for the poncho is a free one and can be found here .  
I used Caron's Simply Soft yarn in Watermelon and a size F crochet hook.  
(Pattycake wears a Girls Size 8 in clothing and this fits her perfectly. )
I used about half of the skein of yarn to make this, which makes it a good project to use up those partial skeins.  It was also a quick project and took about 2 1/2 hours from start to finish.
I used yarn from my stash to make this, which makes it my Stash Buster Project #13!  :)  I can see myself making a few more of these for the nieces.


  1. She looks very happy with it - did she get to keep it?

  2. no, no yet. she has a sister that would be mighty upset if she didn't get one too. so i need to make another one first. :)

  3. It's beautiful Shelly your niece looks so cute wearing it she makes a super model :)

  4. thanks linda! she would like to be a supermodel when she grows up. she's always practicing her walk. lol
