Now this is really different. I am just that different to want to make this. This is not a typical poncho and it must be paired with the right attire. Maybe to not attach too much attention, I would elect to crochet it with a muted or pastel color.

I really wish there would have been more pictures of this purple petticoat poncho. I know that the bottom is not pom poms but the design is really hard to see from the picture provided. With the openness, this poncho can be worn well into Summer.
