Girls Granny Poncho

Last week my daughter was shivering as we were waiting for the morning bell to ring at school.  It was one of those mornings where it was not quite cold enough for the winter coat but a sweatshirt and windbreaker weren't quite warm enough.  I decided it was time to make her a poncho for those cooler days.  She calls it her "blanket with a hole for her head." :)

I searched Ravelry for a cute but quick-to-make poncho pattern and this is what I found.  Several people had commented that the neck opening was too big, so to account for this I made the smallest size and then just added more rows to make it long enough for my daughter.

I used Caron Simply Soft yarn in Chocolate, Plum Wine, Soft Pink and White and used less than 1 skein of each color. (Probably 1/2 to 3/4 of each color.)  The color pattern I used was as follows:
Row 1: Chocolate
Row 2: Plum Wine
Row 3: Soft Pink
Row 4: White
Row 5: Soft Pink
Row 6: Plum Wine
Row 7: Chocolate
Row 8: Plum Wine
Row 9: Soft Pink
Row 10: White
Row 11: Soft Pink
Row 12: Plum Wine
Row 13: Chocolate
Row 14: Plum Wine
Row 15: Soft Pink
Row 16: White
Row 17: Soft Pink
Row 18: Plum Wine
Row 19: Chocolate
Row 20: Plum Wine
Row 21: Soft Pink
Row 22: White
Row 23: Soft Pink
Row 24: Plum Wine
Row 25: Chocolate
