The unfinished blanket that lay away for so many years…
So as I was moving, I needed to clear out my stash – in it self a difficult task. I gave a lot of my yarn to a colleague, whose daughter had just learned how to make pompoms. Hearing how thrilled she was, really made me happy.
I just could not part with this yarn and luckily so, because it was perfect for a poncho too.
The Crocheted Poncho
I started off with the neck in crossed single crochet stitches, and as I had an uneven number of stitches it created a wonderful pattern. At the same time this technique also added to the texture of the poncho making it thicker and hence warmer.
I love colourblocking and I think the little rows of black between the raspberry red and the pale blue really make the colours pop.

So have a look in the back of your closet and check whether you may have a UFO lying around that could become a WIP and finally something useful.
