Don’t know what it is about this yarn but it keeps splitting, so I’m having to keep unpicking and re-stitching ! Like the colour however but I’m wishing I had made this in wool instead.
On to front section, much slower than expected because of the yarn being a pain, having to unpick this 1 in every 3 pattern clusters! Wonder if it would be this bad if knitted.

This design really pulls together on the finishing. The double crochet stitches along the seams really make this poncho beautiful. The buttons were fun and easy to make and totally set off the overall design. Pleased as punch with it. Really didn’t like the yarn choice though.
I can’t help wondering how it would look if it was worked in wool, for a winter version.
