Fun Fur Trimmed Velvetspun Kids Poncho
Created By: Shelly Hattan

I am just learning how to crochet and got tired of making small "pot holders" for an afghan I am trying to make. So I decided to make a poncho for my 3 year old daughter. I really liked the feel of the new Velvetspun yarn, so I used it instead of using the Boucle as show on the free pattern. I made one rectangle pink and the other purple (my daughter turns it around depending on what color she wants showing that day). Then I trimmed it with pink fun fur. My daughter loves it and I'm pretty proud that I actually finished a project. This was a quick project (I'd say it took about three sessions while watching prime time telelvision) and the amount of yarn required for the Boucle was the same needed for the Velvetspun.

The only thing about Velvetspun, though, is that if you mess up, you really can't pull the yarn apart to fix it without making it look a little tacky. The pattern, though, is pretty forgiving and I was able to adapt fairly well. I also used a K sized needle.
