I have a new pattern out that ventures into new territory for me. Although I learned to crochet long before I learned to knit, I haven’t released any patterns until now that included crochet. I love both crafts and often say I am “bi-craftual.” Sometimes I look at a design and think, “That would be so much easier to do in [insert the other craft here].” With this pattern I combined what I consider the best of both crafts. The body of the poncho is knit in a light garter lace pattern that molds to fit the wearer while the trim is crocheted in an open pattern with dangling flower motifs. In addition, a crocheted trim around the neckline provides stability in this area.
I’m also venturing into new territory by hosting my first “a-long,” in this case a knit and crochet along for the pattern. You can find details on my Ravelry page where the K&CAL is being held.
