Autumnal Polo Poncho. Crocheted in 100% russet cotton and multi-toned, fine, mixed blend yarn, crocheted on a large hook, to give a loose stitch, and soft lacy feel around the neck and shoulders.
This has been a bit of a labour of love, and taken days to complete, but the completed item is totally unique and would be a pretty addition to the wardrobe, to be worn for additional warmth and style.
Modelled by my very own Jackie O look-alike, at 11 years old, this item of clothing is suitable to be worn by a child, or a lady of 'very' slim build. Obviously, the taller you are,the shorter in length the polo poncho will sit on your body.
Very easy to wear, simply pop over the head and away you go, no fddling with buttons or zips. The ultimate in comfort.
Crocheted in a coninuous line, starting at the polo neck and increasing in stitches, to allow for shoulder and body width. The heavier russet cotton is then added to the bottom in a looping crocheted design.
Approximate measurements: With the loose polo neck folded over as pictured, the length of the poncho is approx 65cms and the width at its widest point, the base of the poncho is approx 80cms in diameter.
This is a very swishy poncho, with the heavier cotton yarn on the base, my model could not resist twirling in it.
