Doily poncho

Recommended Posts

I thought I'd share my new project. I posted pictures and a description of the pattern in my blog here. It's a doily pattern from a book, and I don't know if I made enough changes to the pattern to qualify as original, so to stay on the safe side I'm not posting the pattern.

 

I'm pretty pleased with it. I wish I could remember who here posted a remark that I read that gave me the idea to use a doily pattern for a poncho, but whoever it was, thank you, it's a great idea!

 

 

Edited to link to the specific blog post, not the blog in general.

Barbara, I'll post the pics when it's done, right now it's too short. It doesn't look right yet.

Aww, shucks, you all are so sweet. Thanks for the compliments. I promise I'll post pics of the poncho on when it's done. I'm hoping to have it done by Tuesday. On Tuesday I start a new class and I'm not sure how much of my crochet time it will take up.

 

Using the doily pattern wasn't really my idea, it came from discussions here, I think around the pineapple shawl that a lot of people are doing. I read all of that, and then saw this pattern and loved the stitch, and thought of doing a poncho with the pattern.
