I know that there are some out there that knitted the "Martha Poncho", and I was wondering if you might comment on which pattern you used, what your finished result was like, and what kind of yarn you used.
I'm very bummed out.
I just did a little swatch of the main body of the poncho of the Bernat pattern
to see if I could figure out the general stitch pattern, and as it turns out, I was able to do that part.
It looked pretty okay, considering I wasn't using the right yarn or needles to gauge (it was just a practice shot to see if I could even do it, and also, how I would like the result; I figured if I didn't like the result, I wouldn't go forward with the whole poncho).
But then I got to the scalloped edging, and I guess somewhere in the translation from the crochet pattern to the knitting pattern, the scallop edging is really no more than just that--just a garter stitch scalloped edge...no laciness. The intracies that shows for the crocheted scalloped edging is gone. For me, a big part of the look of this poncho is the scalloped edging. I don't know if the detail of the difference between the ponchos will show up in my posted pics, but I posted them because...well...maybe I'm making a big deal about this?
Is this one of those that once it's all done, it will look great? Am I being too picky? Again, how did all of yours turn out?
