I made this for a colleague’s daughter and she loves it! I used two skeins of Yarn Bee Surprise Yummy white. I used two different hooks and a basic poncho starter pattern diagram I found online. I did a simple double crochet stitch border and for the collar I did a simple single crochet stitch for about 6 rows. Then I added a pompon to complete it.
Well, it was a surprise – and now that the surprise is over, I decided I really don’t like this yarn color which is Yarn Bee’s arctic blue. I like the texture of it but just not the color mixture. It’s kind of like a weird camouflage… I would like this yarn a lot more if it didn’t have the odd colors speckled throughout… The shawl is a simple granny pattern and the border is just a double crochet.
