Heya thought I'd share an obscenely easy project...asymetric al ponchos!! (so fun to say) I used buky yarn and a P hook.  I made a chain till it went around me, allowing for some drape, and made a simple loop pattern (Row 1: ch3, sc, ch3, sk1, sc. Row2 and throughout: ch3, sc in ch3 loop, ch3, sc in ch3 loop). The trick was that i turned the work in the middle of rows.  It doesn't look like much at first but once it's on it's a nice alternative to most ponchos.  Sorry the first picture is kind of poo.

This one's just a collar...it reminds me of sea foam!

Quick and Flexable. You can do anything once you start thinking about custom work like this. Tell me what you think!  Wink

I really like it, it's very artsy.  It kind of looks almost like a free form drape. 
Way to go.  I love it when people take the ordinary and give it a twist.

Those are really cute.  I agree with flamethrower - very artsy.  And the best part is that it's easy to make!
