First time poncho perfect

Well maybe not so perfect but dd loves it so I am very happy!

Got the inspiration from MemeRose and the pattern from Lemonddesucrette. Soooo quick to do. DD chose the colours herself and the order in which they went in. You can't see them properly as two of the colours are greeny shades. She said she wanted it like the colours of the sea starting with white and getting darker as the sea got deeper!

I say it's not perfect as I think I should have done the neckline a little larger so it would be slightly more drapey. I finished it off with a simple cluster shell edging. DD says it is warm and snuggly and loves it to bits so that makes me very very happy.

It's a nice poncho, but the nicest thing about it is the daughter wearing it! Those colors really set off her beautiful blue eyes. Perfect choice.

Lovely poncho Hazel:)

Heidi said...

Rightly so as it is wonderful! I want one!!! :-) Humm....another project finish and maybe I can start this one. I want to start a cowl with a fab yarn I bought in Germany over the winter.

Are you going to make a large one for yourself? I love ponchos to wear when it is chilly inside or in the autumn outside.

Hugs from Holland ~
