Think This'll Do the Trick ...
... for a 7yo niece who loves PINK?

I thought so too.

Specs: Red Heart Bright 'n Lofty yarn in Bubble Gum. Approx. (2) 4-oz. skeins (I "barely" tapped into a 3rd skein to finish the fringe).
Directions: Start with Yarn Harlot's Very Harlot Poncho pattern. Provisionally cast on 42 stitches on size 10.5 circular needles, knit in pat for 18", bind off. Pick up provisional stitches in neckband, knit 2 rows of K1P1 ribbing, then one row of YO, K2tog to form a row of eyelets. Knit 5 more rows of K1P1 ribbing, then bind off in ribbing. Chain crochet a 24" long tie (approx. K crochet hook). Weave tie through the eyelets on the neckband. Cut enough 12" strands to form fringe along bottom edge of poncho. Weave in all ends. Send to your favorite niece!

Happy Wednesday, everyone.
