Wow, what a lovely Pizzazz Poncho with different color shade. Thank you so much for the details about the pattern. I cant wait to make one like yours. This is awesome! Anxious to make one! Thank you so very much for sharing your gifted talents with the world! I love this poncho its beautiful! I was wondering how I would alter the pattern if I wanted to use a bulky weight yarn rather than worsted weight?

The art teacher at my school would really just love this poncho. Judy is one of those eclectic souls and I know this would be one of her favorite pieces of clothing to wear any chance she got. I just may rig the Santa Secret workshop this year.

Red Heart Super Saver is so great for a poncho like this. She is a great designer with seemingly unlimited design ideas. And every single one of her patterns seems to speak to me. If you are looking for a good all purpose poncho then I suggest making this one. If you don't have a stash to use up, then pick your favorite solid color and go with it.

Just right for nippy fall days. I love the colors used in this poncho, so attractive and gives life to a rather gloomy fall or winter day. In case I decided to make this poncho, I want to make it bigger and longer so I can use it from the fall on to the colder winter season. Can't wait to do this project.

What a classic piece. This is so the 70s. I love this totally retro look and the colors used are perfect. This is so beautiful. I want mine to look a certain way so I am not going to take it to chance that my stash has the right colors, so I am just going to buy new yarn for this LOL.

I am not going to tell a fib. I wish I did have enough left-over yarn to complete this Stupendous Stashbuster Poncho. The colors that you used here could not have been planned out any better. Once these two pieces have been completed, do you advise that they be blocked?

I love patterns that enable one to use up leftovers of yarns from previous projects but not all of those patterns are good. However this one is delightful and I have just spent an hour rummaging through all those baskets of bits and pieces that I keep in the hope that I will find something really nice to use them for. Having found enough yarn and in lovely complementing colors I am about to begin this gorgeous poncho for the coming winter chills, lol.

Wow, the colors are amazing in this Stupendous Stash buster Poncho. I have a ceder chest full of half balls of all colors and weight sizes of yarn. This would be a great idea to use up some of the ends and half balls. So much better then making pom poms. I can make quite a few of these. LOL Thank you for sharing this free crochet pattern.

I love how colorful this poncho is! It's perfect if you want something bright on those days you're feeling the winter blues.
