Poncho Production II

I know this looks nothing like a poncho right now.  But this is the one I am custom-ing up for a friend.

It's basically constructed from half-stitching together two almost-complete giant crocheted circles.  I say "almost" because I incorporate a nifty little boat-neckline for to slip the head through.

Sounds rudimentary, I know.  But, boy, does it look oh-so-smart!  The aran-wool blend that I'm using is soft yet sturdy, which makes the poncho quite warm, and gives it a very contemporary look with it's fairly structured drape.  With the rounded hem and a no-nonsense design, it is a really gorgeous updated poncho-style.

I can't wait to make one for myself!
