So if you follow on my blog then you will have seen my post here which is my pledge to finishing up some un-finished works in progress (WIPs) that are lying around my house.
Well I finally finished up this beautiful poncho for Little G recently and was really pleased with how it turned out. The pattern is Butterfly Breeze Poncho by Sincerely Pam chosen because it’s a stunning design and because it’s for Little G who loves butterflies at the moment.
I’m a big fan of all of all of Pam’s designs and have worked up several for Little G (including her Un’bear’ably Cute Hooded Cowl, the Owl Be Your Buddy Pillow Cover and the child sized Madison Vest. You can see my finished projects on Ravelry here. I also have a couple more of her patterns that I haven’t made up yet!
But here is my tah-dah moment for the poncho…
As it’s hard to get my hands of Red Heart Yarns (which is the yarn suggested for the pattern) I choose Stylecraft Special Aran and Stylecraft Special Double Knit in Magenta to make it out of because it’s so swishily soft!
Purple is Little G’s favourite colour and the Stylecraft Magenta shade is just such a yummy rich but bright purple.
I added tassels all round the outer edge of my poncho because they are such a fun embellishment.
Little G’s verdict was that she loves her ‘swishy top’ and has been wearing it around the house – that’s the best sort of endorsement I could wish for!
So yay! I can tick one of my WIPs off the list, 1 down, 9 more to go…
