Opinions please - big net open stitch poncho?

Has anyone made this:

I have 2 skeins of Noro Silk Garden I’d like to use up and I am tired of making hats, don’t really wear scarves.

Do you think it would work for this poncho? Look ok?

I’m sure the yarn would work fine, but you don’t have enough. The pattern calls for 5 balls of Big Net which is a total of 440 yards. 2 skeins of Noro is only 218 yards. I made this poncho a long time ago using Lion Brand Imagine and it worked fine.

Yeah, I figured I’d be short but I guess I didn’t notice by how much! I planned on using a smaller needle size and making it smaller than the full length they have, but yow!

Ok, another hat it is!
