Easy Folded Poncho Ta-dah!

Ooo, it's lovely! I wore this poncho for the first time last night to warm myself up - I had been sitting on the couch completely absorbed in the little hat I was crocheting when I suddenly realised I was cold. Very cold! Poncho to the rescue!
Pattern::   Easy Folded Poncho by Churchmouse Yarns and Teas
Yarn::      Rowan Felted Tweed DK in Carbon. Lovely blue undertone to the grey. Bit scratchy on
                exposed skin. I would use the suggested alpaca yarn next time.
Needles:: 4 mm
Yardage:: 6.5 skeins = 1242 yards / 1136 m
Mods::      I added 10cm to the width and 20cm to the length, which I felt would be a better fit for
                 a…..hehem….. more solid girl. It worked.
This pattern is certainly very easy with lots of lovely stocking stitch....lots and LOTS of stocking stitch! I did find myself getting a teensy bit bored by it but, admittedly, it was the perfect mindless knitting project for TV watching. Just make sure to stop and measure towards the end or you may find you do too much.....
Anyhoo, now I am working on a couple of smaller projects for the girls. I was told off for spending too much time working on projects for myself! Miss J has chosen a hat, Miss E would like a rainbow doggie to match her birthday present, and Miss M would like me to sew a new dress for her. Oh, for some mindless stocking stitch.....
Have a beautiful Easter holiday, everyone.

  1. That's beautiful, I love the colour. I am such a slow knitter though it would take me forever!

  2. HI Sam, It looks fantastic! DId you know you left the pattern here? I should have emailed you ages ago. However, I am thinking I might need it for a future project...

    1. Aha! It was all part of my cunning plan to share the poncho love!
