This is not only the first poncho I've ever made but the first one I've owned. Never thought I would like one but I do and it won't be my last.
The pattern is Camybe which you can find here on Ravelry.com. I almost always alter patterns sometimes a lot but this time the only change I made was to substitute a simpler cable for the two side ones in the main design. I wanted something I didn't have to constantly look at the chart for and I got it. Once I got one repeat, I hardly looked at the pattern again. It is just one big rectangle, folded in half and sewn up the shoulder. I like how she designed the cabling so that the shoulder looks like one cable when it is two come together.
Used Berroco Vintage yarn in color Aubergine.
So now that spring is right around the corner, I'm staring a 3/4 length sleeve sweater which will probably be done in late May. You guessed it, when it is too hot here to wear it!
Close up of shoulder. Two different cable edges sewn together in the middle.
Thanks for visiting!
