2-skein Charlotte Adaptation


Just out blog surfing and saw this 2-skein Charlotte-esque Charlotte (see Sept 3 entry). It's not the complete 154 rows, but it's surprising how far she made it with 2 skeins. Turned out pretty, and it's fun to see other approaches at working and adapting the pattern.

Big thanks to Christina at Between the Stitches, too, for emailing with some experienced "been-there-here's-how-it-worked-for-me" info on yarn quantities and edging in response to my post yesterday. If you haven't already been to Christina's site, stop in. Her blog is an invaluable resource for ponchos, too. And it was on her blog that I first caught site of the cute baby poncho that turns out to be from Mission Falls (a favorite designer).


Hmm...the 2-skein Charlotte is making me wonder what I can do with my 3 skeins of random beige Koigu (2 of one color, 1 of another). I think that might be almost full size!

FYI, they have the cute baby poncho pattern at Knitting Arts in Saratoga. They no longer carry Mission Falls yarn (WhatEVER!) but they still have quite a few of the pattern books and leaflets.
