Granny Stitch Poncho

This crochet project was fun to make.  I don't know what took me so long to think of it.  If you have made anything with the granny stitch, you are going to find this a breeze to make.  I have a feeling that this is going to get a lot of wear, once the weather cools down, of course. 
I'd say that this pattern size is written for 3-5 years.  The pattern can be easily adjusted, though.  The collar of the poncho can be made larger or smaller by adding or subtracting from your beginning chain.  Of course the length is easily adjusted by adding or subtracting rounds.

 You may not copy, change, or sell my patterns in part or in whole.  You may sell your finished product, but I ask that you give credit for the pattern by linking back to me.
