IMPORTANT NOTE

Hello, and welcome.
I would like to inform you that I AM MOVING.
...well, sort of. I have started a new blog, Oui Crochet, that focuses just on crochet, crochet patterns, and crochet resources. I am in the process of building it up as a one stop shop for all things crochet, and I am very excited about it. I hope you will come over and check out my progress. :)
I will be moving my patterns from this site, to my new site. My idea is to leave this site active, so that you can still access other aspects of this site. I will also leave a modified "introduction" post where each pattern is on this site, as to keep all links active and make it so that you can easily locate the pattern's new home. As an added bonus, you will also find new printable/downloadable versions of my patterns.
I apologize for any inconvenience, but I assure you, this change is a positive one. I look forward to seeing you at Oui Crochet.
Happy Crocheting!

Crocheted Sweater Poncho

   One day, while searching online for inspiration for a fun crochet project, I came across a set of really cute sweater poncho patterns from Emerald Moon Creations.
I wanted to make one for my youngest daughter, but I really wanted it to have long sleeves. I ended up choosing the third pattern and making a few minor changes to get this:


My alterations were fairly simple.

I used a size H hook.

I also used Caron Simply Soft yarn in Grape. (It took a little over one skein.)

Then, I worked the sleeves to make them long.
To do this, I simply reattached the yarn to the arm hole as instructed near the end of the pattern. Instead of working the rows of single crochet, I continued the pattern until I was at the desired length of the sleeves. I finished off with as row of double crochet and two rows of single crochet, to mimic the neckline. That's it.

The entire pattern is easy to follow for the intermediate crocheter, and doesn't take long to make. I finished mine up within two days. It is machine washable and it is super-cute!
