Free crochet pattern: Icy Hombre Poncho

My old poncho had gotten so much wear recently that I decided to make a new one. I wanted something that crocheted up super-quick, and I also fancied using this gorgeous Gedifra Riana Color yarn, so the Icy Hombre Poncho was born. The yarn makes very subtle ombre stripes which are accentuated by the simple stitch pattern. I managed to make this poncho over the course of a weekend, and it's super-easy so even beginners can make it. If you fancy making it, feel free! I have offered the pattern as a free Ravelry download, but if you're not on Ravelry you can download it right here:
