I'm not a beginning knitter but I wanted this pattern to make for my granddaughters and my mom (she's in a wheelchair). The girls are little yet and hard on things plus their dad (my son) throws everything together in the washer so they need to be made of tough wearing yarn. No need for fancy cables and lace! Mom, on the other end of the spectrum, is in a care facility and the same requirements hold true for a poncho for her as well. This meet the bill just fine.
