Modern Granny Winter Poncho

I really could call this project, Modern Granny Meets Glacier Cowl.  I decided for my third poncho in the series to add a ribbed turtleneck to it in the same stitch that I used when crocheting the Glacier Cowl.  If you are someone who doesn’t like anything on your neck, you can simply leave off the collar and still have a beautiful winter poncho.

I used 3 Caron Cakes in the Blueberry Shortcake colorway because I love the ease of the self-striping yarn.  You can always choose any worsted weight yarn in either a solid color or stripe it as you desire.  You can also adjust the size by simply adding more rounds to reach your desired length.
