  1. Wow thank you both so much. So helpful!
  2. Hey there... So I'm working on my first official project that requires reading a pattern. I've only been crocheting for a few months now... Anywho, I wanted a poncho so I picked the fairy tale poncho pattern (which is here: http://www.mooglyblog.com/fairy-tale-poncho/). It requires making 4 rectangles which you then put together. Well, I'm working on my first rectangle A and I can't help but feel like my rectangle is far too small for a poncho (for a human anyway lol). My work looks a LOT tighter than the online pictures, even though I'm following along with the exact same yarn weight and crochet hook size. Here is mine so far: (also attached to this thread if you can't see if here). I must admit, I do like to pull tight on the yarn after I yarn over... >.< I would appreciate any suggestions or tips! Should I just pull it all out and start over and go a lot looser...? Thank you!
  3. Hi everyone! I just found this community today and I'm pretty excited about it ! I have wanted to crochet and knit for years and never got around to it until about 2-3 months ago when I decided it was time and I first got the hang of knitting and crocheting followed a couple weeks after - all on YouTube believe it or not! Anyway, I am finally beginning to experiment with reading patterns (I started just following along on YouTube) and modifying them...Still trying to learn... I found this perfect and beautiful pattern for a 'Fairy Tale poncho' and I absolutely LOVE it. I feel like I would love it even more if I added a hood to it. Does anyone have any idea how I could do that? Here is the link for the pattern: http://www.mooglyblog.com/fairy-tale-poncho/ Thank you in advance for any input!
