FO: Poncho

Last year in April I made a friend in Australia a poncho for her 40th birthday. She gave me free reign with regards to a pattern, but she wanted something in a muted colour, so we went with grey. IF 37 I used this DROPS pattern, which was a great knit! It’s amazing though how much yarn it called for, which I realised when I had to cast on 408 stitches.

I love the details of this pattern, the leaves, cables and the flowers look just gorgeous. They might seem difficult when first looking at the pattern, but they’re actually really easy to knit. This was especially easy after a few repeats of the pattern, they just worked themselves.

IF 42The large collar worked in rib was a great end to the poncho.

IF 41

As this is one of a few pieces that actually fit me I modelled the poncho.
