|Elizabeth's poncho WIP|
I've begun a poncho for Sucrette's Granny Poncho Crochet-a-Long. This one is for my granddaughter, Elizabeth, who requested blue and white.
I don't have any white yarn handy, but I do have cream. I think I like it better than white, and hope that she does, too.
this tutorial was posted on the Crochet_in_Common list on Yahoo. One of the things that I have always been unhappy with in crochet is the need to chain 3 to move up to the next line of crochet. It just doesn't look right and I have never liked it. This tutorial shows an incredibly inventive way to make a double crochet when moving up instead of the chain 3. I'm still working on mastering it, but I think it is absolutely brilliant! I'll never chain 3 again. Brilliant, absolutely brilliant!
