Crochet: Lacy Poncho for Mommy

I have thought occassionally about this poncho pattern combining knit and crochet and wanted to make it for myself. I finally moved it to the top of the list as it seems the perfect this for a new, nursing mom. It is so easy to wear, and surprisingly cozy.

I used Paton's Divine yarn in Soft Earth. It's a beautiful blend of taupes and creams.
The pattern is from one of my all-time favorite crochet magazines: Family Circle Easy Crochet Fall/Winter 2005. There are so many great patterns! This is the third I've made.

Once again, I've chosen something calling for large hooks and yarn. I am too impatient for a project that would take me months.

I don't have many things I would call "pretty," but this is classically pretty I think. Just the thing for a little wardrobe boost while I'm changing shape.
