crochet poncho designed by doris chan

Cat’s Cradle by Doris Chan

I am a huge fan of crochet designer Doris Chan. She designs fabulous crochet garments and shawls. When I saw the Cat’s Cradle Lace Topper on Ravelry, I always wanted to make it. But the design is in a sold out magazine and doesn’t come with a chart. This design, Cat’s Cradle v.2,  is very similar to the original but with more sizes and a crochet chart for the lace section. The pattern is great and the charts are super helpful. I crocheted with a size 6 mm hook, but should have chosen the recommended 5,5 mm. Since I made it as a poncho version and without sleeves it doesn’t have to fit perfectly tight to my body. With a black T shirt underneath this poncho is über cool :-))

This is not the last Cat’s Cradle in my wardrobe.
