Martha Stewart 'Coming Home' Poncho Reviewed by Naomi Duke on 2015-03-18 *****
I started, then restarted, then restarted this pattern in the Homespun Thick-and-Quick yarn. I didn't realize I had chosen the wrong textured yarn! Anyway, I had so much trouble with it that I stopped all together and did it with a normal yarn that I had lying around, left over from Valentine's Day crafts. It fit my five-year-old daughter perfectly, and looked great! It was also a way for me to get to know the pattern without the weird texture of the Homespun yarn.

If you're having trouble visualizing the edging, you can look at the child's size pattern where they have a diagram. That helped tremendously.

Finally I was able to do my own poncho, in the Thick-and-Quick "Wild Fire." It is gorgeous! Very heavy, though, more like wearing a blanket. But several people have already "ordered" one just from seeing the two that I have done. So I'm starting a new one in Homespun "Pearl."

It really is an easy and rewarding pattern, once you get the hang of it.

Yarn very hard to work with. pattern is written more complicated than it should be.

I love love love this pattern. Compliments I have received are "elegant" and beautiful because of the beauty of Homespun yarns. This is an easy pattern and I have made four of them and can complete in two weeks just crocheting in the evening after work. The pattern is easy to adjust which I did because I thought it was too long for me. I just eliminated a few rows.

Made this poncho and have received so many compliments. People on the street stop me and comment on how beautiful it is. Am making another for my daughter for Christmas.

Made this poncho for my daughter and my daughter-in-law and they both loved their ponchos. It is an easy to follow pattern with great results.

Very nice and easy pattern. I took off a star because I couldn't figure out the edging, so instead I did a couple of rows of single crochet to give a nice clean edge. The poncho looks amazing ! I agree that this yarn is annoying to work with for the first couple of rows, but the end product is so so worth it, the poncho is plush and warm and looks very chic. I finished it in 3 sittings, probably total 6 hours, while watching tv.

This is a beautiful pattern and easy to follow until you get to the edge. Someone should simplify this so that it can be reader friendly. Thank you Lion Brand for allowing me to make this...

This is a wonderful Poncho and well worth the time to make. I was a bit throw off by the instructions in round 2 of the edging, but once scrutinizing the Q&A section I was able to figure it out.
I think it would be a bit clearer if it were written - Slip st in first space, (ch 3, dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in same space, *ch 3,***skip ch 3, skip sc, sc in next 3, ch 3, skip sc,**** (Shell, ch 1, Shell) in next ch1-space. Hopefully some of you find that helpful.

I made one of these ponchos a couple of years ago and just absolutely love it! I get comments all the time from strangers wanting to know where to get one for themselves.

I love this pattern, I'm said to say I didn't use homespun yarn, I used another 4 ply worsted weight and it came out great.
