Just finished this quick cover up Poncho for Chloe. I hope this will fit her for some time. A thank You for a helping hand. Chloe’s “Grosi” is always so ready to help me in need. Thanks for being a friend.
This pattern is called Robin Poncho. You too can purchase this on Ravelry for your self. Or download on her blog http://www.mukicrafts.com as far as I know…
I had been given 5 skeins of yarn called “Sugar Baby Stripes” by Mary Maxim. Only used 2.5 for the size 6. Great yarn for this kind of job.
So I had a order for 4 skeins in a very deep plum colour. To be exact, it had to be the same as the top 2 skeins. I am very happy I was able to recreate the same colour and strength in the bottom 4 skeins as I have in the top 2.
Then decided to play around with 4 skeins of Fingering weight in a deep plum but much more with light to dark shades in same skeins. I am in love with this look and can’t wait to see them knit up.
Coat is finally finished. Smiles, it only took me 4 summers to knit up.
Wow… You may say, but being fingering weight, needles 2.25 mm and in a black as you can see for most of the knitting. I really needed good lighting and the best was, sunlight outside in my backyard. Then the challenge of cutting the front open, something we knitters call “Steeking” and picking up stitches to bind the front edge…woha, a little nerve-racking. Only because I already invested that many year of knitting into the coat. Really did not want to muck this part up…Yes perfect all great.
You can see the inside of the coat is just a beautiful as the ousie..smile.
As I have shortened this jacket I had to modify some areas. So it is not true version of her coat. Therefore I have lots of yarn left. for some other project. Then I still have a foul box of her yarn for another coat of shawl..
As you can see this pattern has been in the works since last winter and as Summer is almost coming to its end and with Fall-Season just around the corner. This stylish and uniquely knit Solar Plexus Vest will be perfect for a little cooler days at home, in office or for your zen moments ajoga classes.
