I love this poncho. I have two skeins of yarn that I've wanted to use to make a poncho but have struggled to find something that will work. My yarn is not a 7 but I think I can swatch it and come up with a number of stitches to make this. I really like the construction of this because it allows me to use a second color when my two skeins run out. Perfect!!

If you check the recommended yarn for this pattern, you'll find it's a #6 super bulky not a #7 jumbo.

Hi Lisa, according to the Lion Brand website, their Color Clouds Yarn (the yarn used in this pattern) is a (7) Jumbo weight. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting
