Rain Shimmer Poncho - Adult - superchunky/superbulky
A very warm, chunky, poncho to wrap up in for that walk by the sea - the yarn shimmers like rain on a cloudy day, wrapping you like a blanket!
Decreasing moss stitch sections, (USA seed stitch), and garter stitch background combine to make a modern, textured look. 2 pieces are knitted flat and sewn together.
The pattern is easy, as all you need to know is how to cast/bind on and off, and knit and purl stitches. There is a diagram and photo to help with the sewing up. Instructions are in English, written out line by line, with British/American terms. Yarn recommendations are given, but superchunky/superbulky yarns, that have a recommended needle size of 7-8mm, should be okay, although this is untested! I have knitted on a size larger than stated for this yarn to give a more fluid result.
Matching items available.

I have a bag that say ' I knit therefore I am' - sums me up perfectly! I love to knit and love to design! I have knitted for years, and made and sold literally hundreds of owl gloves and fingerless mitts on-line. About 5 years ago, I decided to give designing and writing patterns a go, and I absolutely love it! The whole process is absolutely captivating, and I love to see other knitters' projects made from my patterns. My beautiful cavvy, Honey, is my constant companion, and she sleeps next to me on the settee while I knit. You can also find me on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/thelonelyseapatterns/
