"Very easy!" says Love. "Our lightweight, classically styled poncho, in three flexible sizes, stretches over the shoulders for a comfortable fit. It will keep you warm on cool spring, summer and fall evenings; and really cozy in front of a glowing fireplace in winter. It is made in two pieces in half double crochet, single crochet with slip stitch for edges. Illustrated stitch, sizing, and assembly charts are included." This is the very best kind of poncho, or capelet, really; simple, elegant, at home in Europe or the Americas, in a lush fabric stitch. American crochet terminology.
