Okay, so now we’re back from holidays time to get back to re-fashioning!
My MIL gave me some odd balls of wool and I had some bits kicking around from old projects. They were in a nice pinky/purple colour scheme, perfect for my daughter who is still pretty obsessed with pink, sigh…
I found a pattern in a library book (sorry can’t remember the name) which showed how to make a poncho out of two basic rectangles – easy peasy! So here is the first half of the poncho. The second half is exactly the same size ( about 45 stiches wide on size 6 needles and about 55cm long) I just made up a repeating stripe pattern as it took my fancy.
To put together sticth at right angles then right angles again hmm, sound weird? Have a look at my terrible diagram! 😉
I will probably finish it off by putting tassles all around the bottom edge. You never know I might actually finish it before winter is over!
