For the main color I used James C. Brett top value yarn color 8449, it does not have a color name but looks like a cream color. For the border and the flowers I used left over yarn that i had in my yarn basket.
The border for the neck is part of Nikki Trenches pattern but for the bottom border I did 2 rows of single crochets all the way around the poncho.
Join yarn in the front or back point of the poncho.
Row 1: 1 sc in each sc around join with sl st.
Row 2: Ch 1, 1sc in the point, sc in every sc to the next point, 2 sc in the point, then 1 sc in every sc around, join and end off.
I used the flower pattern on page 37 in the book.
This was a fun and easy project! Great for beginners!
