Knotty Knot Boot Cuffs V2

It’s another  boot cuffs pattern again yall!  Since the first pair of Knotty Knot Boot Cuffs were in the making I already had it in my mind to combine the colors.  It’s hard to decide which style I like best so I say I love them both.  Same concept as the first one and I think I changed a row.  Boot cuffs are becoming one of my favorite things to make.  I love the instant gratification of completing a project and they are great stash busters.

Poncho Frenzy

There seems to be a poncho frenzy going on in the crochet world.  The poncho can be found on Simply Crochet Facebook page.  What caught my attention was the texture of the collar.  The back and front post double crochet created a thick ribbing effect.  Be warned, the cowl part is a yarn eater.  I was a little skeptical about the cowl but to my amazement that is what makes this poncho so special.  The cowl can be worn up or down.  The cowl reminds me of something from the medieval times.

The colors I chose were from Red Heart (Carrot, Buff, Aran, Coffee) and the green was from the Vanna White Collection.  I chose the colors based on the amount of skeins I had in that color.  The choice of colors were completely random.

I’m tall and I wanted to see how it looked on a live person.  Pam was very happy to model for me.  WTG Pam, you look great.  It wasn’t quite as long as I wanted it to be so I added more rows.

This was an easy project for a beginner.  You may want to watch a video from Moogly on front post double crochet and back post double crochet.  I omitted the fringes but you can your own edge type.  I can see myself making more of these and trying a different neck style and edging.
