    You are a knitting fool! Can you give us just a little background on these pieces. That first one is so cool.

      The first one is a poncho made by crocheting a long rectangle and folding it in half and seaming across one edge leaving space for your head and whatever width you according to how you want it to hang.  The tan is a ribbon yarn which has various changes of yarns as I crocheted across.  It is beaded with clear beads and has a wide ribbon fringe.  If you look closely at the upper left hand corner I have tried to open the edge to show the head opening.

      The tan and turqoise (sp) is a ribbon yarn and Yarn Bee Luscious and beaded with clear beads throughout and on the neck opening. 

      The third piece is a real stretchy yarn from Trendsetters I believe and I crocheted to triangles and did partial seams at the shoulders and threaded a matching ribbon around the neckline.  It's hard to see.  But there it is.  I wouldn't use that yarn alone again, I would combine it with a sturdier yarn such as cotton thread or cotton Lustersheen.  It would make a better fabric.

        Oh, I've used some of the Yarn Bee Luscious and I have some Luscious Sparkle that I haven't used yet. It is so soft.

      The first two ponchos (tan/black/white & cream turquoise) Size P hook, chain 52, Row 1:  double crochet in second stitch from the hook, dc in every stitch across, chain 2, turn.  Row 2:  double crochet in every stitch across, do not double crochet in turning chain.  Chain 2 turn.  Repeat row 2 until piece is long enough so that when folded in half it covers your body where you want it to and then stitch across one edge stopping when you have an opening you are comfortable with for your head and how it hangs for you.  If you want you can single crochet for a tighter fabric.  That's how I did the other ones last year.

      The reason I used double crocheted these two ponchos is because the tan ribbon yarn I used was stretchy and made a small tight fabric with tiny rows and I wanted it looser.  You change to whatever yarns you want as to go.  Just add on at the end of the row and crochet over the end yarns, or weave them in when done.

      Have fun.

        Thanks for the instructions. I've been away for a couple of weeks, so I'm late responding, but I appreciate your answer. I'm going to give it a try, and have saved your message to put in my sewing file.

          Oops I just re-read my instructions and on the Row 1: I should have said to crochet in third chain from the hook.  Sorry.  That is for double crochet, for single crochet you would chain 51 and single crochet in the second chain from the hook.
