FO: Caponcho

My 12-year old niece, Hallie, asked me for a poncho. Like 2 years ago. She wanted turquiose and grey. I finally made her one and gifted it to her for Christmas. Better late than never, as the knitters like to say. :)

 

I used the Rosa'sCaponcho pattern (it's free Rav download) and made a few mods. I added some ribbing at the neck and the edge, and changed yarn colors every 4 rows for some stripey goodness. Oh, and I knit until it "looked big enough." I used Loops & Threads Charisma yarn. Bulky, soft and cheap. :)

Hallie loved it! She loved it so much she thanked me twice for it. Which when a pre-teen thanks you twice for something and means it, you know you did good.

I will have to try to get a couple pics of her wearing it. I didn't have the camera with me on Christmas morning, but she tried it on and it fit perfectly.

  2. I am not a fan of gray but you nailed it with that shade of teal and the gray. You have inspired me to try those colors together.
    Thanks and great job. I love the pattern as well.
