FO: Woven Stitch Poncho (Finally Finished)

Speaking of Autumn, cooler temperatures and keeping warm, my dear wife requested a poncho, crocheted for warmth.

That is my big project now. We did not find a wholly suitable pattern but picked features from several patterns that I will integrate into my own design. She didn't want the square points (front, back and each side) from the (square blanket style with a hole in the middle) and wanted it longer and less wide than the Lion Brand Oversized Poncho. She did like the straight front edge of the oversized poncho, just not the much material under the arms.

Finally finished the poncho!
DW is happy to be able to wear it this winter.
[I am working on getting the pictures]

I'll include a WIP picture when I can borrow my DW's digital camera.

Sounds interesting and very creative! Now I got tired of borrowing a camera from my sons and got my own..Now I get surprise photos of them and it is very nice ! I am sure your DW will let you use it sooner or later.

Bernat Softee Chunky Solid in Navy 100 g (3.5 oz.)

Hook size K (US) 6.50 mm.

Morning low was in the 40's Today!

I'm working on it every chance I get. The rush is on!

Making Color Change
I'm about to start the new, darker color. I still haven't gotten around to taking a picture of this yet.

The last skein of the Bernat Denim Rag twist had a few places where the rag ply suddenly got thicker and puffier. After I had worked it into the poncho I though it might have been better to cut and skip the wonky section of yarn. It doesn't seem to show in the overall appearance of the poncho except maybe in one corner (of the six).

Since You Asked...

The poncho has come to it's end (of yarn). It now lingering in a transitory state of limbo.

I need to find a compatible or complementary yarn to add to it's length.

Is it possible to get a peek at what you have so far and add suggestions?

My Ravelry Project Entry

I have the yarn listed on my Poncho project entry on Ravelry.

I still don't have a picture of the poncho yet. Negotiations with model, scheduling with amateur photographer, schedule conflicts between model and designer/photographer... I'm sure you can understand.


Even living in the same house and being married doesn't seem to help.
