Spiderman Poncho


Am I the only mom out there with a daughter who loves Spiderman? Probably. But now my daughter has the most awesome Spiderman poncho for school.




I even designed a matching hat!

I used the Halloween Ponchos pattern from Mrs. D Crochets: http://www.geocities.com/mrsd2688/index.html Believe it or not, I've never made granny squares before, so there was a bit of a learning curve when I started joining them, but I'm very pleased with the result. I'll write up the pattern for the hat soon; just in case I'm not the only one out there with a girly spiderman fan! lol
