I am stoked to present my TENTH paid pattern, one I’ve been wanting to tackle for almost a year. This one is another knit-look piece like my Gnome Toboggan, but uses even bulkier roving yarn and I think technically qualifies as Big and Badass.
Inspired by a funky oversize scarf I found at a vintage shop in New Mexico, this versatile wrap is all about the lush, thick texture and the bold bohemian fringe. The Boho Fringe Poncho uses bulky wool blend roving yarn and knit-look crochet stitches to create a warm cover-up for evenings on the beach, at festivals, or late night walks on the high desert.
Pattern includes photo tutorials and written directions for both post stitches and the double chain technique created especially for this pattern – so even if you don’t know how to work those stitches yet, you can learn!
Fun fact – My wee skinny townhouse apartment has zero good sources of natural light, and so I prefer to take my photos outside when I can. Even when I probably shouldn’t. This photoshoot, for instance, was taken when it was 6 degrees (F) outside.
My partner and photographer Chaston puts up with an impressive amount of insanity from me for the sake of my little obsession.
I did another hasty photoshoot inside, where the warm is, using my new friend Mona the Paisley Torso.
I love the natural tones of my main model piece, but the beautiful seafoam blue-green one is quite charming also – and I’m working on finishing up the third, in deep olive tones. Solid colors are so much fun to experiment with in bold, striking textural pieces like this one – I’m not sure I’ll be able to stop!
Update 1/30/16 – I’ve finished up and photographed the third Boho Fringe poncho, this one used an alternative to the recommended yarn listed in the pattern, and it worked out great! This one uses Lion Brand Wool-Ease Chunky in Willow, 5 skeins.
P.S – that gorgeous adjustable macrame shell necklace in the main photos is from SelinofosArt on Etsy!
