Shells and Picots; Toddler's Poncho

Shells & Picots - Size 18-24 months
Found this crochet booklet on the clearance rack at JoAnn's for only $1.97. These designs are darned cute, so I thought I'd test one out. The little Shells and Picots poncho (pictured) hardly took any time at all to crochet. It's an uncomplicated design, but the yarn I pulled from my bag is just a bit scratchy because of the sparkly thread that runs throughout the yarn. I would use a softer yarn next time, something with a more comfortable feel against the skin. We'll see if the girlies like capes and ponchos and then go from there.  I plan to add a tie string at the neck, with little pompom ends.
