Inspired by my childhood fantasy to have a rainbow poncho possessing extraordinarily magical properties which could transport the wearer to the land of the Fae....
Okay, back to reality:

This is a Scrapbuster design utilizing random scraps of yarn against a black background.

The Kaleidoscope Magic Poncho requires a 7" crochet block.
ANY 7"Granny Square block can be substituted.

Generously elegant fit due to the nature of being a crocheted poncho.
This poncho fits a US women’s SM/MD/LG ((Can be easily enlarged with more blocks for XLG, etc…))
A Personal Note from the Wand Weaver…
All my patterns are, and will continue to be, based on the concept:
If you can "do" the block, then you can "do" the coat, poncho, or blanket easily. The stitches selected for the garment or afghan are the same stitches that were first learned when crocheting the blocks.
I like that approach personally, as it removes all the worry about the "larger project" and “if I can do it”. Of course, you can! The stitches selected for the garment or afghan are the VERY SAME STITCHES you already mastered while the blocks were being completed!
Once the block is learned, then the world of opportunities really opens up and is possible.
This is precisely why I put so much effort into each block pattern. Small in size, blocks by their very nature involve repetition: THAT's where you learn the stitch concepts the most rapidly.
Hardest part for most is the Center Circle...just: practice, practice, practice, and about several dozen centers in and you'll have it. You'll be dancing around the living room (like I did) because it really is possible to learn how to crochet!
