Alpaca Crochet Poncho

crochet ponchette

Spring is coming closer and I’ll need more lacy things in my wardrobe. This poncho or ponchette is great to wear indoors: It is warm because of the alpaca yarn, but not too warm with this lace structure. The Jorun Alpaca  yarn is luxuriously soft and comfy – a real treat to work with.

Pattern   From the German crochet book Luftig leichte Häkelmode, OZ Verlag.  The name of the pattern is ,meaning white poncho in German.  The pattern is charted and calls for a cotton yarn. The pattern can be crocheted with many different fiber types, – an easy and repetitive V stitches pattern. Most of the patterns come with a crochet chart, so it would be worth buying the book for other patterns as well.

Yarn   Jorun Alpaca,  100% alpaca, 100g/100m – 109 yards. 2 skeins in black #4001, one skein in light green #4035 and one skein in light blue # 4057. This is a bulky weight yarn – extremely soft and comfortable to wear :-)
