Yesterday, in the early evening, I had Big Daddy take me to see my niece, Pattycake. She's a real sweetheart and also a very willing participant when it comes to modeling my crochet items. She LOVED the Posh Poncho and I took several photos of her modeling it.
Here she is....in her first pose.
A bit of a twirl.
A small nod to the crowd.
And the grand finale.
The pattern for the poncho is a free one and can be found here .
I used Caron's Simply Soft yarn in Watermelon and a size F crochet hook.
(Pattycake wears a Girls Size 8 in clothing and this fits her perfectly. )
I used about half of the skein of yarn to make this, which makes it a good project to use up those partial skeins. It was also a quick project and took about 2 1/2 hours from start to finish.
I used yarn from my stash to make this, which makes it my Stash Buster Project #13! :) I can see myself making a few more of these for the nieces.
