Ponchos for Everyone

That first cold snap is probably just around the corner.
Be ready when it hits with a cozy warm poncho.
We have so many design choices to share with you.
The Kaleidoscope Poncho was an early KAL that Julia addressed. What a wonderful design to knit in any long striping yarn and a coordinating solid. Julia made ours in Silk Garden and DK Merino Superwash.
Come see it in person.
This beauty was knit in NORO Silk Garden and DK Merino Superwash for the coordinating solid. We have so many colors to choose from.
Here are many other poncho designs we have to share
A simply elegant design that we knit in Worsted Merino Superwash.
This cover up have been a
real fan favorite! We knit it in
Encore Worsted Colorspun
in a softly drifting colorway.
A poncho piece for sizes 2 through Adult XL. Knit it in a bulky weight yarn. We did ours in Encore Mega.
Originally written for Tuscan Aire, this easy sampler piece is a great design for Aireado- so light weight, yet warm.

Another Fan Favorite. We knit our in Homestead. Encore Chunky will work as well.
A mini version of the very popular Gale Poncho. Sized for ages 2-10. We suggest Encore Chunky.

Love Note Started Last Week

But Its Not Too Late to Join

Last Friday, Julia started our latest KAL with the delicate sweater called
Love Note.
To join our KAL- join our Facebook Group page.
This top down oversized pullover can be knit with short or long sleeves and either cropped or hip length. The loose gauge of 4 sts =1″ over stockinette stitch allows for the use of anything from the recommended fingering wt +
Lace wt mohair to a worsted weight yarn. A well written pattern.
Here is a photo of a Love Note Pillover Julia knit already. She used a Fingering wt yarn + a lace wt Mohair Silk Blend. It is a super light weight garment.

Julia is knitting up two sweaters for this new KAL: one knit with the recommended fingering wt yarn + a mohair /silk blend. She is using Malabrigo Sock + Rowan Kid Silk Haze. For her other version she is working with a DK weight yarn: Joe Cole’s WTF Flockin’ DK worked alone.
I am knitting a toddler sized Love Note knit in a much heavier yarn: Cumulus.
My Love Note, using Cumulus.
I am making size 1-2 for my granddaughter. I am at the point where I am starting the short row shaping to make the back longer than the front.
Then the bottom ribbing finishes it off.
