One of my many and frequent internet purchases was 8 balls of lambswool from Scotland. I have had it for about a year and was wondering what to make with this delicious stuff.
I wanted a warm, close weave poncho that could be worn with skinny jeans and leather boots and, from looking at a number of ponchos, decided to give one a go.
|Scottish Wool - Scrumptious!|
Double crochet into the second chain from the end and continue to the end.
Next row: Chain 2, DC into each space.
Continue to crochet until you are happy with the width of the poncho - in my case 43 cm or 16.5 inches.
Using a crochet slip stitch, crochet the shoulder seams together until you are happy with the fit and drape.
Very simple instructions, in fact, I doubt it could be any easier.
I chose not to double the yarn so that it crochets up quickly as I wanted a finer look to the poncho but, by all means, double or even triple the yarn for a quick project.
To finish, I chose a couple of toggle buttons with a leather look and the poncho is ready for its first outing.
It's currently 40C outside at the moment so, unfortunately, I doubt that it will be any time soon.
Thanks so much for visiting. We'd love to have you join us on Facebook , Pinterest, Ravelry and instagram too.
