Let's Crochet a Poncho!
A poncho—I am indeed a mother inspired by the 70's.
My daughter accused me of forgetting the sleeves. I laughed. Yup. Guilty.
The poncho is made from two pieces, a front and a back. The treble in the centre forms the V-shape. I did add some scolloping around the hem after she wore it a few times.
I taught my friend Megan to make one too. She had never picked up a hook before. She was quite a quick learner as she was well on her way to creating the front after an hour. I think it looks so lovely in the thick soft white wool Megan chose.
It was nice to sit and crochet with a friend. Baby on her knee. Bossy 8 year old wanting sleeves on mine.
