Make a grand entrance with this dramatic crocheted poncho. It's crocheted in a bold openwork pattern using a beautiful thick and thin yarn. Here it is shown in gorgeous green tones. The simple construction gives it a unique assymmetrical drape. Fringe is added just to one side. This crochet pattern is sized for S (M, L) so you can control the drama.
