The Deep Woods Poncho is a fantastic layering piece for chilly autumn evenings and cold winter days. Toss it on over your shoulders for that extra bit of warmth or wear it tucked up around your neck under your coat for super insulation.
Crocheted in Valley Yarns BFL Worsted this top-down, high-necked poncho combines three simple stitches to create a beautifully textured and fluid fabric that hugs the shoulders without being restrictive. The secret to avoiding the pooling that can happen when crocheting with hand dyed yarns is to alternate skeins. Since this project calls for 3 skeins of the BFL Worsted you’ll work with all your skeins right from the beginning, changing yarn at the beginning of each row instead of using skein #1 from beginning to end and then using skein #2 and then skein #3.
The Banded Yoke Pullover is a set-in sleeve, boat-neck sweater that features a band of simple color-work across the front and at the sleeve cuffs. Worked in easy, and fast half-double crochet, this hip length pullover features slit side seams and split cuffs for a preppy but casual look.
Crocheted in Valley Yarns Northampton, available in forty colors, on a neutral background of natural, the six colors in the yoke band and sleeve cuffs mean you can experiment with all kinds of combinations and use up those scraps of yarn you love too much to give or throw away.
