I would love this if it were about3 feet longer

This is really cute, and it looks like it would be easy to make. Alpaca yarn is quite expensive where I live. Does anyone know of some good substitutions I could use that would be less pricey? I bet it would be quite nice made longer. Thanks for sharing it!

Those were my thought almost exactly. I think that any yarn that will give you the right gauge would be okay to use. For the effect, probably the best thing would be to go to a yarn shop and see what they have. I think I would prefer it longer, too, but that shouldn't be a problem.

A beautiful Poncho. Thanks a lot. paphis@gmail.com
