Asymmetrical Fringed Poncho

asymmetrical poncho joanne pedro

This is the ‘Asymmetrical Fringed Poncho’ crochet design by Melissa Leapman, from ‘Easy Breezy Wraps’ (American School of Needlework publication).  This poncho is mainly made of 100% wool from Bendigo Woollen Mills, in colours my mum had left over (caramel, taupe and cream).  She had knitted her own cardigans and jumpers from these yarns previously.  The dark grey fluffy yarn is Bouton d’or ‘Pacha’ yarn which was my yarn I bought a while ago on sale and have made some other garments with.  The poncho was very easy and didn’t take very long to make.

Triangles Cushions

I made these two cushions as a present for my parents for their sofas.  The pattern is called ‘Triangles Cushion’.  It came from ‘Modern Crochet’, a leaflet from Patons.  The cushion was crocheted in the suggested yarn by Patons, which was called Patons Regal 4 ply cotton 50 gram balls, using a 3.00 mm hook and a 40 cm x 40 cm cushion insert.  The colours I chose were different to the ones in the leaflet as I wanted to match my parent’s new rug that they have on their living room floor. I am happy with the results, and so are my parents.

Here is another shawl that I made, in Schoppel Wolle, Zauberball Starke 6.  I used the pattern, ‘Rippled Wrap’, which was designed by Cheri McEwen, which was a pattern I found free on Ravelry.  This is the second of two Rippled Wraps that I made.  The other one is in Noro Kureyon Sock yarn, which was made prior to this one.  I’ll post photos of that one later, it is smaller than this one.  (Front view).

Lacy Shrug crocheted in Noro Silk Garden Sock yarn

This lacy shrug was crocheted in Noro Silk Garden Sock yarn by me.  The pattern came from a design by Jenny King ‘Dolman Sleeve Lacy Shrug’, from ‘Fashions to Flaunt Crocheted with Noro Yarns’.  I made the sleeves shorter than in the original design because I ran out of yarn for this project.  I made this item in Auckland, New Zealand in 2013 when I was living there.
