My friend who is an extremely good knitter made this for me, she also found the poncho got very heavy to handle towards the end and we had to order more wool and it needed to be longer than the pattern said ( the picture showed it to be longer). Once complete the sleeve section only came just above the elbows plus the neck was more of a polo than a cowl neck it was shown as in the picture.
It’s ok I like the new anti pilling. Not so good if you drop a stitch. I will get my Daughter to post a picture on your website. X
I’ve not started knitting with my new wool yet as I’m finishing off a project. I’m very pleased with the quality of the wool and I’m looking forward to making a start.
Easy to knit and lovely to wear
Lovely soft yarn and vibrant colour. I am finding it very heavy work and will not have enough yarn. Probably due to tension problems with the weight. As I can see the poncho will be a little short I will have to add more yarn. A pity, as it really looks beautiful. A more competent knitter will not have had these problems. I haven't knitted in decades!
