All the buzz over the Poncho that Jennifer Lopez is wearing in her new movie, Monster in Law, has sparked creativity.
LionBrand just came out with their version of the poncho, which, IMHO, looks nothing like the JLo Poncho, and is, again, IMHO, their way to make you buy their high end yarns to make it.
It requires 7, yes, 7 different yarns to make this!
I won’t link to it, cuz I just can’t do that! 😛
If you want it, go to their site, and click on the link. It’s on the right hand side.
Anyway, a kind soul on C-ville found a pattern for a JLo Poncho that actually looks like the JLo Poncho.
So, I grabbed my Q hook and RH Symphony yarn and went to town.
I had to add a few rows because I think I did the stitches too tight.
Anyhoo – after all is said and done, I don’t think I’ve got whatever-you-need-to-wear-ponchos thing, cuz… well, look:

So, is my poncho:
too wide around the neck?
too narrow around the waist?
Perfect for anyone other than me? 😥
When all else fails, crochet a hat! 😉
