FO Mohair Poncho


This is the first FO I’ve made! I started on a purple baby poncho for my daughter and found it a bit of a challenge for a first project, so I made this poncho for myself then carried on with the purple one once I felt more confident.

My hubby calls this my ‘string vest’. Cheeky!

that’s adorable! i love it. Did you make up the pattern yourself?

Sorry, should have given the details!

It’s a free pattern from the Lion Brand site:

I made it in the same colour they did, purple mountains.

Its gorgeous! :heart: I love the color!

String vest, humpf! I think it’s pretty hot stuff!

What a sexy first fo. Great job!

I love it! You must be so proud. A cute “string poncho” can really snazz up an outfit. :smiley:

Very pretty!

Tell hubby he just wishes HIS string vest looked so sexy!

:cheering: Very nice…WTG :thumbsup:

Very nice! :inlove:

When I saw the picture, I thought the yarn looked familiar! I had started the same project a while back, with the same color yarn, but I messed it up… so now it’s a printer cover. Love the way yours came out though! Great job on your first FO!

Great job - I love that color!

I thought that looked familiar! I’ve admired that pattern a few times, but never did it because a) being petite I think it’d be too big on me and c) the yarn seem rather itchy to me when i felt it up in the store. :rofling:

Great job! That was actually my first project too–or 2nd after a dishcloth, perhaps.
