Sneak Peek Reveal

Thank you for all your lovely comments and guesses for my mystery sneak peek picture last week and yes it's a Poncho so well done to Gillian, Crystal, Linda and Jennifer for guessing correctly.

crochet, poncho, easy,

I had fun designing this little poncho and trying to decide which blocks would work.

Finished off with a very simple edging

Made with 16 Blocks from 200 crochet blocks by Jan Eaton

Block 6 textures bluebells x 5
Block 65 Patriotic Sunburst x 1
Block 15 Red White and Blue x 2
Block 76 Granny Stripes x 8

I have had this variegated yarn in my stash for 3 years I was so glad to find a use for it I've been waiting for just the right project and I think I found it it looks just right. 

This little poncho will be going into the box destined for Operation Orphan

  2. It turned out lovely and I am sure that Operation Orphan will put it to good use. I like your stash buster button, I want to check it out a little more. I thought it might of been a poncho, but I wasn't for sure, but I was right for a change. Your work is gorgeous, I have been following. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  3. The poncho turned out lovely. The colors are great.


  4. It's so cool! Very retro. It reminds me of something Marcia would have worn on The Brady Bunch. :)

  5. What a great idea and fun use for your squares. Hope you are having a nice day, Heather

  6. Very nice. Someone who needs it will be very happy!

  7. The variegated yarn is definitely perfect for the edging. My guess was way out!!! Oops.

  13. Thank you so much for sharing at my link up

  14. I am sure it will be very well received and make someone very warm and comfy :)

  15. It's looking very pretty!! :) I also thought similar but the word poncho did not occur to me and I just thought shawl. This inspires me to start making wearables, I take the easy path of making small things:)

  16. What a fantastic project! Well done :)

  17. Wow, super! Very creative and soo pretty ♥
