Get your hooks and yarn ready for a little ELKie fun with the Southern Diamonds Poncho Crochet-Along! I’m so excited to bring you another fun and easy project where I’ll be there to help you along the way should you need it. The Southern Diamonds Line has been a huge hit, and I am totally excited to bring you another project to add to it!
If you aren’t a member of the ELK Studio Crocheter’s FB group…whatcha waiting on? We have all skill levels in there, so you can get your questions answered by a very supportive group of people! We actually call ourselves the ELKies!
The poncho is made with the light and beautiful Cotton Fair Yarn by Premier! I used this yarn in the original Southern Diamonds Shawl and after many tries with other yarns, I went back to what worked the best for me! Plus, if you want to order the Cotton Fair yarn, use the code: KL001 and get a 10% discount when you check out! (Thank you Premier for loving the ELKies!)
While I did use a #2 weight yarn, I have worked it in a #4 worsted weight and it looked great too! So….I think it will just be up to you what you decide. I changed the pattern around a little to meet these accommodations and give everyone the ability to keep going or stop when they feel it’s the perfect size for them! That’s one reason why I didn’t release the pattern at the end of last year. I’ve made like 4 different versions to get it just right for you!
