Finished poncho

Pattern: Easy Poncho

Materials: Bernat Frenzy-2 balls each in red, black, purple and white

Straight needles size 11

Large eye needle for sewing and weaving in ends.

I CO 45 sts and worked 17 garter ridges (2 garter rows), changing colors on the right side on the last half of the ridge. Same with BO, on the last half of the last ridge. I got one color block out of each ball of Frenzy and made two rectangles in red, black, purple and white. I sewed the end of the red block to the side of the purple/white, forming the poncho.

It's really soft and cushy and I love it-the sides come just to my elbows and the points to the top of my thighs.

I wanted to hurry and finish it since a cold front is on its way and this weekend is supposed to be chilly and I wanted to wear it to church.
