Loving this poncho

| 2 Comments

I’m happy to say that I’m finally finished knitting the poncho. This was a true labor of love, since not only did I knit the garment, but I spun the mohair yarn also from a fleece. The only thing I did not do was shear the angora goat. I enjoyed processing the raw mohair fleece, carding, spinning, dyeing and finally knitting the project.

My lovely daughter was the model

and I do believe she made the poncho even more beautiful…

There’s still a little more to do. I have to block the poncho.

Do you see the curled edges?

Afterwards, I’ll set this aside and look forward to cooler weather when I can wear my super warm poncho.

If you want to create one for yourself, you can! This pattern is now available on Ravelry and it titled the Stoneland poncho. Many thanks to Andrea of This Knitted Life for giving me the opportunity to test knit this garment.

  1. What a beautiful poncho and model! I love the texture. You would have loved the fair we went to this weekend. Lots and lots of spinning, fiber and sheep!
