Triangle Poncho

I know you a lot of you are getting some cooler weather in your part of the world, but even here, as the days warm up, the evenings can get a little chilly, so I made this sweet little poncho for Madeleine.


I'm currently on a huge yarn scrap busting mission. I had one and half balls of the pink yarn and one of the white. To make this I used about a ball of pink and a quarter of the white.

You can make this with any scraps you have lying about, with the easiest pattern, as follows

For the front
Grab your desired size needles and cast on one stitch.
Then at the beginning of every row yarn over to make another stitch and knit to the end
Cast off when you have your desired length.
Repeat for the back

Decide how big you want the head hole and stitch the rest together to form the poncho

Do take note of how many stitches if you plan on changing colours throughout the pattern to ensure the back matches the front.

I made a sweet little felt embellishment using my Big Shot.


DIY Delight of disaster? Delight, I think it's rather sweet and I am slowly getting rid of my HUGE yarn stash.

Thanks for reading,

Mel xo
