I love the ombre effect of the yarn used for this poncho. The colors are so cheery and the design looks very comfortable.

This is a simple yet really pretty poncho pattern. I really like the ribbing on the cuffs and bottom edges - it keeps them from curling up. The collar and buttons are really stylish touches. I'm sure this would be lovely in almost any shade of ombre yarn, or even a self striping yarn.
