Petal Stitch Poncho

I do crochet things other than the butterfly shawl. I made this poncho, for example. I made one for my niece Mallory for Christmas, and when I had Brigid try it on for size, she liked it so much that she asked me to make one for her, too. Ooh, a request! How could I turn her down?

This pattern is slightly tricky at the beginning, but once you get the hang of it, it's actually quite easy and goes rather quickly. I can make one of the ponchos in just a few hours. I like the open lacy look. This poncho can be worn two ways, with the flowers down the front or over one shoulder. It looks really nice over a turtleneck sweater, like Brigid is wearing in the photos below, or over a tank top in warmer weather. Brigid is still headless in the photos, of course. Shy girl.

I made Brigid's poncho with two 6-ounce skeins of TLC Amoré. The color is Sand. (Click on the photos for a larger view.)
