Crochet: Going Home Poncho in Purple

I thought I would do some "every day" sweaters for Audrey. Typically what I knit, crochet, or sew is more Sunday/party appropriate. When it comes to every day, Audrey prefers to wear knits--something close to pajamas since she isn't allowed to wear her actual pajamas. How can I blame her going for comfort?

So I thought, why not do some fun, casual things she can wear more?

She loved a little chenille poncho I bought for her last year and she has now outgrown so I did a pattern search and came up with the toddler version of the Going Home Poncho pattern from Lion Brand. I'm a longtime fan of Martha Stewart and thought the buzz around her "going home" and the story of this poncho was so interesting... But really I also thought the Homespun yarn specification and cute style would make it fun for Audrey to wear.
I took Audrey to the store with me and had her pick out her favorite color of yarn: purple.

This was a very quick project, and even better: Audrey seemed excited to wear it! We'll see how long that lasts. But as it is, it was the perfect layer for walking the dog ("Zoe") during our stay in Phoenix.
