Okay, when ponchos first started coming back into fashion I said "meh" and recalled the scratchy grannie square ponchos from my childhood. Then I knit a poncho for my niece and though "gee, these aren't so bad". Then I started Belle Star (it's almost a poncho) and thought "I might actually wear one of these". Now the infection has insidiously crept in and I wants me a poncho!
Problem was, I couldn't find any patterns I really liked until this
. I could actually see myself wearing that (maybe just around the house, but possibly outside). The fringe is kind of neat, but I really like the neckline and hood.
My question to all of you: does anyone recognize that pattern? I've scoured Patons' website and have come up blank. In fact, Yarn Forward is the only place I've seen it. Has anyone actually seen the pattern? And how about Patons' Bohemian? Is it really as worm resistant as they claim? If it's not then I have to find some way to get the pattern not in kit form. Any help would be muchly appreciated!
Thanks in advance,
-ren (who fears she will look like a giant fringed pear in a poncho, but is beyond caring)
