baby poncho

This past week I finished a baby poncho I was working on for my cousins baby and it came out even cuter than I had imagined it would. It is a lion brand pattern here, that I found so I could use up some of the leftover yarn from the afgan. Since I had so many colors left over I decided to stripe it in order to get rid of some. The pattern was simple and I got to learn a lot of things I hadn't done before like casting off in the middle and then picking stitches back up to make the hood. I made the 3-6 month size on bigger needles since I knit so tight and I think it came out about half an inch wider than the pattern said, which is totally okay for a poncho. In any case, it went really well and I am quite happy with it. I can only hope that my cousin likes it and uses it for his little girl :)
