Ponchette for Spring

The original pattern called for hemp yarn (DK weight) to knit this ponchette... but since I was trying to use up stash I figured Rowan Felted Tweed would make a lovely substitution as well. A friend of mine has been wanting a little poncho for a while now.. and I finally came across one that I actually like myself. Great use for stash yarn! The ponchette is modeled below by the lovely giftee...

Pattern: Hemp Ponchette
Materials: Less than 2 balls of Rowan Felted Tweed in Melody, Sz 7 needles.
Other than the little easy peasy knitting above, I've been working on the Sunrise Circle Jacket. Adding some minor modifications to the sleeves... but that will come in a later post.

Lovely! the simple design and the great yarn are a perfect fit. I am sure the giftee is very happy with it.

Best wishes, Winnie~

Wow, you're right. In general ponchos get me going in a non-stop derisive giggle but this is gorgeous. You are one of those bloggers who makes my "to-knit" list expand exponentially.

I am so happy that I found your site. It appears we have some things in common besides knitting. Thought you might want to be the first to see the pattern for the triple lindee!

I want to do your long sleeved shrug. Where can I get the pattern? Do you have a new blog site?
