Last week the postman delivered a huge box, it was full of squares made by loving hands members. This is just half of them lol
I had volunteered to sew up these squares but I have to say it's a challenge as they come in all sizes and textures. The obvious thing would be to turn them into blankets and I think the majority will end up as blankets but I wanted to try and be a bit creative so I decided to try making a poncho.
Once I got started I realised just how simple it was.
I took 16 squares, then edges them with two rounds of dc in a bright contrasting shade.
placed them into a poncho shape
Then realised that it would be easier to join them from this shape
I then crocheted all the squares together with a row of dc in bright purple and added a shell border around the edge.
Here it is all done and embellished with Linda's cute little daisy's from Chalky's World
I enjoyed assembling this little Poncho so much I am going to see how many more I can manage to get out of the squares I have, the rest I will make into blankets, unless you lovely peeps have more ideas. :)
Such a sweet and easy little motif, your hook just speeds around and it's finished in seconds.
Here it is in two colours
I think it looks lovely adorning this little poncho, another one made from the box of squares, it brings the whole thing together. :)
