Un poncho para mi!

 I didn't expect it but this poncho was so much fun to knit; I can understand if you don't quite believe me, though. But the whole adding stitches and changing colour is so compelling! :) I began during my stay in Iceland in August and finished last weekend, which isn't too bad, in my opinion. There are five different colours - all of them Evilla yarn except the royal blue, which is Kauni yarn. I used my Addi 3.5 mm dpns - the pattern calls for two 80 cm dpns but there is no way that you can fit 396 sts on an 80 cm needle! Take from me; it won't work! Anyway, I did the rim on my Addi 3.0 mm dpn and I think the result is lovely. I thought the neckline was on the loose side, so I crocheted two rounds of dc.

Den er blevet rigtig flot Karin. Hvad vejer den ca.?

Karin aka Guin said...

Tak, de damer :) Og Irene, jeg lurede godt på dine striber; den bliver SÅ fin!

AG, jeg tror, den vejer ca. et halvt kilo - jeg har p.t. ingen vægt, men jeg skal nok få den vejet :)
