Witchipoo Halloween Poncho

Last year for Halloween, my daughter decided that she wanted to be a witch... a nice witch. So I bought her a cute and colorful witch costume from a local store, and then I decided to crochet a hooded poncho for her to keep her warm while Trick-Or-Treating. Last year, when she dressed up as Princess Anna from Frozen, I made her a crochet Cape and Hat like the ones worn by Anna. She loved her Princess Anna Cape & Hat, so I knew I needed to make her a poncho she'd love.
To make this poncho, I used Red Heart With Love Metallic Black, Caron Simply Soft Party PurpleCaron Simply Soft Party Spring Sparkle, and Caron Simply Soft Sunshine. I found the pattern for the Witchipoo Halloween Poncho by Snappy Tots on Ravelry.

I try to use the same brand of yarn for a project, and there is a black Caron Simply Soft Party yarn, but I preferred the black Red Heart With Love Metallic yarn because it is a little thicker and works up really fast. And it still looks great with the Caron Simply Soft Party yarn.

I used black as the main color of the poncho and added purple and green stripes at the bottom. I wanted to added orange, but I could not find the Caron Simply Soft Sparkle Orange anywhere! It was sold out!

When I got to this point, I thought  was done. It was the Friday night before Halloween, and I knew my daughter would want to wear the poncho with her costume to her school's Fall Festival that evening...

When my daughter tried it on, I realized that it could definitely use a couple more rows of green and purple stripes, so when we returned home for the night, I quickly added a few more rows.

So here's the poncho with a few more rows.  She wore the poncho to a Trunk-Or-Treating event during the weekend, and then to school on Halloween and for Trick-or-Treating, of course.

I'm so glad that I found the sparkly yarn to use to create this poncho. This poncho was fun and easy to make. It worked up really fast!  I love the stars, the hood, and the pom-poms. If my daughter decides to be a witch again next year, she can wear her poncho again... I might need to add a couple more rows. Kids grow so fast, especially when their father is 6'4"! πŸ˜‰
