What was old is new again
What comes around
We all know that saying, well in my case
that's exactly what I crocheted.
I haven't crocheted a Child's Poncho
since my daughters some 30yrs ago.
(whoops I guess that's telling my age)
Well they seem to be the rage or the in thing again!
So I showed Miss V our youngest grand (7 yrs) my yarn
cupboard and asked what colour would she like?
She chose the blue and white.
I have these jumbo balls of yarn that my
friend brought back for me from
JoAnne's a couple of years ago .
They were priced so low I couldn't
Lion Brand POUND OF LOVE
# 4 MEDIUM WORSTED WEIGHT
I used a 6mm crochet hook
First I crocheted the blue and white
together but found that it was too
heavy for my liking.
So after a few rows I changed over
to just the blue.
It took me a day to whip up.
The pom poms make it don't you think.
I used my Clover pom pom maker 2".
Well I couldn't stop with crocheting just one
this one's for my sweet great niece
Miss C. she's one yr old.
This pattern is for toddlers 1 thru 4 years.
This yarn was given to me by the same
sweet friend , Lion Brand Jiffy.
This one is much heavier weight
#5, with a mohair look.
Called for a #7 hook but I used a 6.5 hook.
Sat by the sunlit window on Sunday till
I finished this cutie!
Miss V has hers and loves it and can't wait to wear it.
Miss C. I'm hoping to see soon.
