Ponchette


Poncho

As I am waiting on an order of yarn to arrive at my doorstep and I am at a standstill in working on my scarf, I thought I would resurrect an old favorite. This is a little ponchette which I knit up in a variety of yarns. It is mostly garter stitch with a row of drop stitches intermingled every few rows. The color combination is random. My method is purely impromptu by selecting colors and I knit! This is my favorite way to knit ~ no pattern ~ just go with it. And look at the result!

There has been a little inkling in the back of my mind - giving me the urge to pick up my knitting needles! My yarn stash is in such disarray right now and needs to be put back into order. When I begin to sort it out and get it organized I start putting color combinations together...resulting in something like this little ponchette!

This yarn thing is such a sweet addiction! :-)

That ponchette is really cute! It looks like the colors were planned out. :-) You have a great eye for color.

I love, LOVE the ponchette. Do you have a pattern for it? It is wonderful.

Thanks Michelle. I don't have a pattern for it. It is just a long rectangle. I knit it up in a garter stitch and would change colors about every two or three rows.

That is so nice! I love "winging it" with a design, but rarely am brave enough do it with something wearable.
You sort by color? I did that too, but now I think I have to re-sort by weight, I'm having trouble coming up with project ideas this way.
Can't wait to see what you make next!
