Japanese cape/poncho finished!





Yes, I have finally finished my Japanese poncho. Long story really, but in a nutshell, had to change the original yarn I chose because my local yarn store had changed to spring/summer stock and did not carry my thick yarn anymore... argh. I could have found it online I suppose but didn't want to add to expense. In a way using this thinner yarn (Cascade Eco yarn) works out better since I now have a little light cover up for cooler summer days. Perhaps I could make the other one for fall... love the pattern. (oh, and many thanks to my model Anastasia who was so willing to help her mama out as usual) :)

  9. Thanks everyone for the sooooo very sweet comments!! Having an adorable model available at any time sure helps in the picture department! :)

    Anna, this is the perfect beginner knitting project, it is just a straight up and down knit 2 purl 2 pattern. The pattern diagram shows you exactly where to pick up the stitches!! Good luck!
