Today I would like to share my latest knitted design - Cable Fantasy Poncho. It is short raglan sleeve poncho with fancy cable pattern at the front.



The poncho is knitted bottom up on straight needles with Cascade 220 wool yarn. The neck and band are knitted in the round. It is a stylish and comfy garment for cool autumn and winter days.



Sides of poncho are decorated with wooden buttons.

Cloudlet Hat and Scarf Set

13.11.15
Some time ago Cloudborn Fibers offered their new yarn which will be available from 15th November 2015 to create a free pattern for them. I was so excited to try a new yarn so I agreed to do this straight away. A bit later I received a package with 2 x 100g skeins of Fine Highland Worsted Wool yarn in Heather Grey colour.


The yarn is so beautiful, soft and really easy to work with. I really love the colour and its texture.  Garments made with this yarn are really warm and comfortable to wear. I decided to design hat and matching scarf set with a cable pattern using this great wool yarn. When I tried different cables I re-knitted my swatch about five times and nothing has happened with the yarn. So I think the set will last for a long time and keep the same shape and look like new for a very long time.
So, please welcome Cloudlet Hat and Scarf set. If you love knitting cables then this pattern for you. This stylish set will keep you away from cold and wind. The set is knitted with nice cable pattern. The hat is knitted in the round with no seam and the scarf is knitted back and forth on needles.
