I made this last year- the original shawl - and have never worn it. I found a spare ball of the bulky yarn in my stash and decided to turn it into a poncho a la Suss Cousins.
Modifications (featured on www.knittedbliss.com Modification Mondays)
Make a scribble stole that is twice as long as it is wide. ALLOW FOR THE FACT THAT THE LOOSE KNIT STRETCHES ESP WIDTH WISE. I used the design by Lisa Sisk and Rose Anne. Fold the finished shawl in half. Leave an opening of about 12 inches (x2) for the neck opening. Use a 7mm crochet hook and the bulky yarn to join the edges to form a poncho with a simple 3-chain picot edge.
Continue the edge along the neck edge to finish off.
