Lightweight poncho

i’m fairly new to knitting and i am not at all familiar with the types of yarn/farbrics yet. I wanted to make a very lightweight poncho for my mom for mothers day but i dont know what would be the best yarn to use. if anyone can let me know and also if there is any nice patters that would work well with that yarn i would REALLY appreciate it!!! THanks!!!

Lots of great patterns here…

Regarding yarn, you might think about something in cotton if you want it to be a “spring/summer” garment. :smiley:
