Lacy Shells Poncho

A few weeks ago, Chelle posted a new poncho pattern at Crochetville for us to play with. It's the perfect thing for nieces and nieces' best friends gifts, so I bought some TLC Wiggles in Grape a week or so ago with it in mind.

I used an I hook, but when I make the next one and the one after that I'll go up at least one hook size. It took a little over half a skein of the Wiggles to complete. I totally winged the size, knowing how big to make it for my niece and taking it back an inch or so for a child a year younger. At the least I can call it a capelet if it's too short, but I don't think it will be.
