Spring Poncho

(Crochet * special guest: Beatriz)

Spring poncho…
Un poncho primaveral…






My mom made a granny poncho, using some of her cotton stash, which makes it perfect for spring.   She went for green and neutral tones, with a touch of purple.  For a special touch, she used the Mosaic Stitch for the border.  I have to confess that I am feeling inspired to make one for myself (maybe soon!)
Mi mamá se tejió un poncho en ganchillo con puntada granny.  Está hecho con algodón en tonos verdes, neutrales y un toque de morado.  Para darle un toque especial, el borde final lo hizo en punto mosaico.  Debo confesar que me están dando ganas de hacerme uno (¡tal vez pronto!).

  7. This poncho is really lovely. The colours match nicely. Do you know which yarn she used? It looks like a cotton yarn. I already thought about making myself another poncho from cotton yarn, as well. But I don't know if is is too heavy in the end. Best wishes, Viola

    1. Yes, Viola, cotton can be heavy at times. I think the clue is to use a light weight cotton (DK, fingering, fine) My mom used a cotton from Peru called Sello Azul, with 4 mm hook,, and it does not feel heavy at all.
