Now what can you do with a rectangle ?
When you have 2, you can make a poncho.
So I knitted another one, put them together, added fringes and ladida :
Here is the explication :
If you knit it on needles, use big needles and fine wool to create a light effect.
Sew together like on the drawing I made.
the part that isn't sewn remains open for your head.
|join together here|
|fold and sew 2nd seam|
cut (a lot of) strings of aprox. 26 cm. I used an old wooden board that had the right size.
|wrap it around several times, then cut one side open|
|4 threads form 1 fringe|
|Fold the string of 4 double, and pull that through a stich on the edge of the poncho|
|put the hook through a stich and pull the 4 threads through|
|make a loop|
|pass the threads through hte loop|
Finally, add some buttons or a brooch to the front of the poncho.
Have fun making your own poncho !
