New Design: Patent Poncho

Inspired by all the Fisherman’s rib – patent in Norwegian – garments in fashion at the moment, I have designed a poncho in an oversize sweater style with long splits in each side, to make it less voluminous, and with full arm capacity instead of a restricted one. The poncho is knitted in panels in order to create a contrast between the linear rib and the unstructured braids in a beautiful camel brown – another source of inspiration to me but not necessarily your chosen colour, there are another 85 solid colours to chose from – in Ask – Hifa 2, a pure wool with a lot of bounce, which also is available in an additional 16 stunning melange colours, see ull.no. The sleeves are knitted long to keep your hands warm on cold days.

The poncho is one size, but the length can easily be adjusted, and knitted on a 3 mm/US 2.5. I have sold the pattern to the Norwegian magazine Familien/The Family and will come back with details of publication date when it is confirmed. Indeed, it will be part of a series of my designs to be published together so I better knit and design some more! I am afraid that means it will be a year before the pattern will be released and for sale on my webpage, marveng-puckett and on ravelry. But it is not long – mid November – until the next issue of the digital knitting & crochet magazine Clotheshorse, see clotheshorsemag, is out and another of my patterns is released, this time in English. I am very excited to see it styled and photographed professionally. I will keep you posted and go back to my knitting…

    What a wonderful texture! The s the contrast between the soft cables and the well defined rib provides a nice accent.
