Coming Home Poncho

This is done with the Martha Stewart Coming Home poncho pattern. I had trouble with the edging because I increased the poncho to make it bigger. When I finally got the right count for the edging (after sis and her whiz math skills) I was on a roll and anxious to finish it up. Starting the last edging row I realized that I had done the edging all wrong. Now I had ripped out the edging twice now and was not going to make it a third time. I left it as it was and put a sc border and I am happy with it.



I did make some wrist warmers to go with it as well as fancied up the collar. Overall I am very pleased with the end product. I used Caron mill ends in the colors Monet and Honeydew, and a "L" hook.




I hope everyone has a great weekend. *HUGS*

You look wonderful in it. And your smile shows how happy you are with the results. You did a fabulous job. I love the collar fancied up. I may try that too. And the cuff are a splendid addition to the outfit. I know you had problems with the edging. But I am glad that you persevered and did not give up on it. It was well worth the extra effort.
