Review for Free Adult Fishnet Poncho Pattern
Kim Elwin on Dec 16, 2009
This was an extremely simple pattern to use!! It turned out beautifully and I had never done anything except afghans before so this was rather unnerving for me at first but everything was explained beautifully! I am excited to try some other patterns to see if I can get a few other gifts taken care of for Christmas this way! Thank you so much for this!!!!
