Crochet Cowl Poncho WIP

I few posts back, I invited you to visit with Pammy Sue, many of you already know her, and her crochet work and love of the craft.  If you haven't visited there review a few posts back to get the link to her place and see they eye candy of the Crochet kind.
She made a lovely cowl poncho, and I got hook envy, so I'm fashioning one up too. I just finished up the cowl portion. I want to thank Pammy Sue for her assistance and encouragement. I do have a picture of the cowl portion of the project, using yarn I had on hand Caron Simply Soft, I cannot recall the name of it at the moment.  I did choose a few yarns to go with it, and see what I can bring to the party from the stash bucket.
There was some new stitches learned in this for me, and I got plenty of practice using them on the cowl portion.  Forward and back post stitches. I had done forward but the backward I had never done before, there are are many great tutorials, and depending how you learn you can find a printed with pictures or  video, I use both, but prefer the actual demonstration.
Looking forward to the New Year, and wishing you all a happy healthy one.

I created my first piece this year, using a front post/dc... for a hat for my 3 year old grandson- it was red and white and mimicked Waldo's hat, from
"Where's Waldo". My first time learning HOW to do this stitch and incorporating it in a project.
Your cowl poncho...sounds like it will be nice and warm!
Happy New Year!

Good job! I just had to make another one using worsted weight yarn. I had no clue when I made my first one that "chunky yarn" in UK was our worsted weight! Happy New Year!
