My Poncho

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.
