Step 1: Materials:

3 Loops & Threads, Charisma, Chocolate Cupcake Yarn Balls
Size H or I crochet hook

I use this yarn because it's a chunky yarn.  Any chunky yarn would work.

Step 2: Single:

Crochet 80 single stitches (for a size 10/12 girls - adjust the stitches higher or lower for size)

Step 3: Loop:

Loop the 80th single stitch back and chain together to form a circle.

Step 4: Double Crochet:

Double crochet in all single stitches from the chain above -- add 3 extra double stitches anywhere in this row.

Step 5: Chain:

Chain 2

Step 6: Double Crochet:

Double crochet in all stitches in the row above -- add 4 double crochet stitches anywhere into this row.

Step 7: Chain:

Chain 2

Step 8: Continue:

Continue double crocheting and adding 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, extra double crochets incrementally to each additional step. 

Keep going until you have the desired length.

Step 9: Finishing:

To add a bit of flare to the bottom of the poncho,

    Very nice, except this would take me 9 steps....I have yet to find a decent set of instructions to show me how to crochet (my first step then is to learn to crochet in the first place. ;-)
