Second Sweater

Well, poncho. But I'm still counting it!

I made this for my older sister, who live in Minneapolis. It will be perfect for her winters - it's very warm and cozy! The pattern, although a bit boring, was simple and fairly quick. This was my first time working entrelac, and I loved it! It's so fun, and looks much more complicated than it really is (which is always nice!). I made a few mods - I shortened the sides and back by 4 stitches, and wish I had done more. It's very wide! I also sewed the sides together about halfway down - it makes it hang a little better, and gives it a defined arm hole, while still leaving it open at the bottom.

This was my first time using this yarn - it's Sirdar Nova Super Chunky that I bought off someone's Ravelry stash. It's a pretty good yarn - nice and thick, sturdy, and machine washable, which is always nice when you're giving a gift.

The year of the sweater is still in full force! I'm on schedule to finish my third sweater of the year this weekend (!!!) - it just needs sleeves! My mom just picked out the sweater she wants, so I'll hopefully cast that on this weekend too. I'm loving this sweater knitting!

What's on your needles?


  1. Wow! That's amazing. Nice job!

  2. I'm just casting on for the Flowing Lines sweater.  I love this poncho!  It's super cute!
