I knit this poncho last year, called Leaning Doors Poncho, by Cathy Montoya. I liked the knit pattern when I saw this pattern on Ravelry. It's a free pattern. I still haven't sewn the shoulder part in place. It's essentially a rectangle and you need to sew a little at the shoulder to turn it into a poncho. I have it pinned in place, but when I try it on, I am not sure if I like it. Maybe it's too short? I have it pulled forward in the photo. I better finish it and see.
I used a soft yarn with a bit of a fuzzy halo to it.
