To The Point

There is nothing like finishing a major knit.  Or more to the point, there is nothing quite like hunkering down and doing that thing which one has been avoiding.  Like a seam.  But the deed is done.  The joy is  - well, joyous.  

Before I get too giddy with the gloating and patting myself on the back, the specifics should be shared.

Pattern:  Lace Cotton Ponchette by windloop.  Check it out on Ravelry here. There you will find a link to a webarchive.

Yarn:  Malibrigo Finito.  A gift to myself.  You should gift yourself some too.

I've named this one To The Point.  It is going on vacation later this summer. 

The pattern is repeating wedges composed of garter followed by lace work.  One seam turns the swath into an asymmetrical ponchette. There has been much discussion about that word.  What exactly is a ponchette?  When does a ponchette get big enough or long enough to become a poncho?  Must there be arm slits to convert a ponchette into a poncho?  Does a poncho automatically have arm slits?

Oh, by the way.  If you don't want a ponchette, just forget the seam and knit enough wedges to make a lovely shawl.  The pattern works for that as well.


  1. WOW! Lovely, Lenora! You are such a go-getter!

  3. Lenora, this design is gorgeous, simple and sophisticated - which often goes hand in hand anyway ;)
    It could work a a bottom part of a skirt.
    I just downloaded the pattern from Raverly, it's very professional and clear, thanks a lot for sharing it with us.
