I made my version of this poncho using Lion Brand® Jiffy® Thick & Quick® Yarn in the color called Cascade Mountains. I also used size 13 (9mm), 29-inch wood/bamboo circular knitting needles from Clover to make my version of the Newsprint Poncho. I used approximately 5 balls of Lion Brand's® Jiffy® Thick & Quick® Yarn to complete this project.
I am giving this handmade poncho to my mom as a gift for Christmas this year. I will also be making matching wrist cuffs to go with this poncho as well. Above is a photograph of me wearing the completed Newsprint Poncho.
I am also hoping to make quite a few more knitted items as gifts for family members and friends this holiday season. I think I may have over committed myself as I may not have the time to make all the items I want to before Christmas though. I'll have to wait and see what happens.
Until my next post, happy knitting!
