Crocheted Baby Poncho




This is a tasselled baby poncho I finished making last weekend.
It's a Christmas present for my sister-in-law's four month old baby girl.


The pattern is from the book Crocheted Baby Clothes
by Nikki Trench. I chose to make the size to fit the age 12-18 months
which is too big for little Sienna at the moment but
hopefully she can wear it and it will help keep her warm when she
starts toddling about next autumn.


According to the book this is a quick project and
can be finished in one evening. Well with my crochet skills
it took me a good few evenings and afternoons to get it done.
I was quite relieved when the last tassel was tied and trimmed!
But I had fun and learned a few crochet lessons from
making this.


Now I'm off to make more Christmas presents and decorations.
Hope to be back soon with more finished  projects.


Thanks for reading!
