Granny Rose Poncho 2

If you remember a few weeks ago I found this yarn in my stash and I decided to make a poncho for myself  for Sucrettes CAL.  Well I did finish it a while ago but haven't had time to show you all till now, this is the finished result. 



 As you can see my addiction to Astri's granny roses is still very much alive and well. I made ten granny rose squares joined them into a v shape for the neck and then just crocheted around them and continued until it was the size I wanted.  The yarn wasn't that easy to crochet with however because there were bobbles in it, and me crochet and bobbles usually do not get on but I persevered with it until....... horror of horror's I was nearly finished but I was so scared there wouldn't be enough wool to finish it, I know you have all been there almost afraid to continue in case you would run out just before the end with no way of buying any more yarn to complete it, but as you can see there was just enough.   





It's lovely and thick, soft and luxurious to wear and I was going to put it away for the winter, but after a week of beautiful sunshine, it's raining, miserable and cold in the North East of England once again so I think I will leave it out  for now. :)

  11. I made one of these ponchos for myself a while ago but this is amazing!!! I love how you used one color and added the roses. Off now to look at those granny roses. It is good that we are having a cold spell again here in Europe as it would be sad not to be able to wear this.

  12. Beautiful! I love the roses. I haven't gotten brave enough to try them; the sewing together part scares me.
    Thanks for the link for the granny square sampler crochet a long; I also have to be working on multiple things at once and this project is perfect for me.
    Love all your pretty flowers!
    Blessings,
