This poncho can be made in a weekend using a big hook. It is fast and easy. Just pop it over your head to keep you warm when the wind gets chilly or the air-conditioning is too cool. Make one in super soft machine wash wool for every day and every evening or glam up your outfit with one crocheted in silk. It is worked from the neck down in one piece which means no seaming. Simple double crochet only (single crochet in US terms).
5 balls of Noro Kureyon
or #3 yarn will work well.
Crochet Hook: 11.5 mm (P) (or 12 mm) depending on gauge
