Poncho







Since no one in my family ever checks this blog, I feel fairly certain that I can safely post the following pictures. This is a poncho I made for my three-year-old niece for Christmas, from a pattern I got here, using Lion Brand Color Waves yarn. It's supposed to fit a 3- to 7-year-old, so with any luck the child won't be swimming in it too badly. I'm just about done with one for my other niece, the one-year-old, so I'll post photos when that's done. It's super warm and cozy ... almost makes me want to make one for myself.

What a lovely poncho- it looks so good in that yarn. I've used that pattern a couple of times but being in the UK I can't get hold of lionbrand yarns so had to make do with chunky yarn.

Thanks! This is the first time I've used the Color Waves. It's a pain when you first start using it -- you can't see the stitches AT ALL -- but once you get used to crocheting by feel, it goes pretty quickly. It's a yummy yarn. I'm sorry they don't sell it in the UK!!

It's gorgeous! I just bought some LB Color Waves in a gorgeous red. So far I've made a chicken from it. LOL

M - As a knitter (crochet just doesn't work for me - what is supposed to be a square turns into a triangle every time...) I'll have to figure out how to make that in knit. Soo cute - my niece (5 years) would love it.
