I found this pattern on my mother's crochet and knitting web site today.  It is a very cool poncho pattern, but it made me a bit sad with how fast time goes by!  The model in the photo is me.... when I was 18 years old (I think, 18 or 19)!  That's over 10 years ago, wow!

This is a pattern from my actual spring/summer collection.  I am giving it away to my loyal followers for free.  Please do not copy my pattern, sell my pattern, or the finished product online.  I sell finished work online, you’d be therefore in direct competition with me, and it is against my copyright.  HOWEVER, I do not mind you making this for personal use, or for selling at live crafting events or markets in your area.



This pattern has not been tested!  I am human and capable of typos, miscalculations, and fla…
