Tadaaaa!!! I’ve finally finished my daughter’s poncho. Just in time for the cooler months here in Melbourne!!!
She’s super happy with the results. She originally thought she would like fringes as a finish. But, I ended up doing a different kind of edging, as the wool we picked did not work well with fringes. I’m not sure how this type of edging is called, so I call it petal edging, since I usually use it to make crochet flower petals. If anyone knows the correct term for it, please drop me a line in the comment box.
The pattern for this edging goes like this:
sl st, ch 5, sl st at the end of each cluster (so every 4 stitches)
Keep going around and sl st at the end. It looks like semi-circles all around the edge.
dc around your 1st semi-circle, tr 5 times, dc. You have made 1 petal.
dc directly around the second semi-circle and keep going until the end. Fasten off.
If anyone gets inspired into making their own take on this poncho, please, please, please post a photo of it and send me a link to it. I’d love to see your work!
