I made this one for myself. Ponchos are coming back (or maybe never went away). They were popular when I was younger though I've never had one. I have mixed feelings on the yarn I chose. Part of me wishes I had gone with a neutral solid color, but the colors of this yarn drew me in at the shop.The yarn is Berroco Boboli in color #5340. It took 6 skeins. The pattern is Hugo by Gosia Grajdek. Here I am modeling the finished poncho.
The reason I sort of wish I had used a solid is this yarn doesn’t readily show the detail in the center front/back and along the edge.
Here’s a view of the back. The poncho isn’t asymmetric, it’s just the way I’m wearing it. I’m ready for the cooler weather of fall so I can wear it.
