If you are a child of the 70s, no doubt you had a poncho. Or two.

Mine were hand-knitted by my Mom, and I adored them. I especially liked that you could half pull them off, leave them hanging from the back of your head, and pretend that they were a head of long hair flowing in the wind - just like the bionic woman's when she ran.

God love the 70s.

Anyway, this square is one of about 4 billion from a poncho pattern I found in the July 2006 issue of Crochet Magazine.

I think I might be too old for ponchos now. But then again, if Martha Stewart pulled it off in her 60s, maybe I can too...

I miss the days of poncho hair.

I had a white one that doubled as a wedding veil. Thanks for reminding me.
