I haven't attempted to crochet clothing before, other than scarves and wraps, so this will be a first. It is going to be challenging, but I really want to start crocheting clothes and I think this poncho might be the perfect beginner project for me.
I looked for the yarn at my local craft stores, but none of them had it stocked. So, I placed my order on the Lion Brand Yarn website. I stuck with the original colors, because I really liked the pretty greens and blues and green always make my green eyes pop. :) They also had some other great sales, so I picked up a few odds and ends like this Lion Brand Yarn bag. Perfect for storing the yarn for this project.
