Experience:

  • very easy
  • simple finishing

Yarn:

  • total of 320 (400) 520 yds fine weight novelty yarns
  • total of 320 (400) 520 yds bulky or super bulky novelty yarns
  • 30 (40) 50 yds bulky weight yarn in coordinating color, for assembling

Notes:
Poncho/wrap is made in strips, holding two yarns together as one. Use three to six heavier weight yarns and a similar number of light weight yarns, and mix and match them in different comboinations to integrate all the yarns together. You’re essentially making eight scarves that then are crocheted together to make up the garment.
