Who would have thought that this piece is making a comeback after nearly a year?!
. . . . . .
This fringed cardigan + poncho was the first & still is the biggest knitted item in my inventory. It was the first item I’ve ever made for myself even though I was already into my fourth month of knitting. It was one of the few early days of impromptu projects where I mostly knew how to only knit & purl. It took months to finish (distracted by the urge to make more toys, that’s for sure), several unplanned trips to get more yarn (wasn’t able to estimate correctly yet) & a fair bit of hours spent repeating the knitting – unravelling process.
It was an experiment & to some degree, it could be just rubbish.
Or so I thought…
It is I dare say, a historical project in my books & to share it with you lots?
Well, you’ve got Anaïs & Sue to thank for. If it wasn’t for their requests & endless encouragements, this pattern would most probably remain as chucked away scribbles. Now properly compiled with a new name even (since I couldn’t decide on how to specify it, I call it CARCHO), it really is an honour to be able to share the pattern to all you fellow knitters on PashKnit’s mailing list.
See it as a thank you treat for being such darlings.
So quickly now… check your inboxes!
Don’t forget to show me your finished carcho, alright?
Until next time, happy knitting!
