First Poncho

Recommended Posts

I finished my first poncho tonight! It's for my oldest daughter and I'm so excited. I used my beloved Crochet Bible, picked a stitch and went to work. I'm so happy with it. And so is my daughter! All I have left to do is weave in the ends.

I picked the Solomon's Knot Julie. Mine doesn't quite look like the picture in the book but I think I did it correctly, lol. Here's a closer look

I made two rectangles and joined them. I used sc's to join but am not sure I like the look of them. Hubby said he liked it because it "broke up" the front but I think it almost looks too solid on the lacy design.

Wow! That stitch is gorgeous. That's a beautiful poncho. Your husband might have a point. By using a stitch that's not as lacy, it makes the seam look more like an intentional part of the design. (I hope that came out right.)

 

I want to learn that stitch!

I like the seam the way it is as well. If you try to make it less visible, it will ultimately make it more visible, I think, because it will show a change in the pattern. The solid line makes it look intentional, plus I think I just like the way it looks.

WOW! I love that poncho. That is such a beautiful stitch and you've done a wonderful job on it. I've always wanted to try that stitch but have been afraid of it. <img border=0 src="http://img28.photobucket.com/albums/v84/crochetville/yay.gif" />

Oh that stitch is just GORGEOUS!!! I absolutely LOVE :)h it!!! I don't know why I am scared to try it. :shrug I think I like it so much I am afraid I'll botch it. :eek2 Can you give me an idea what size yarn and hook you used, and what size your 2 rectangles were before sewing together? How do you get it to fit right lengthwise and around the neck opening? I really, really want to try this!:yes
