I am wife to Jeff, homeschool mom to 8, a knit and crochet teacher and totally addicted to knitting, crocheting and other fiber arts. After knitting, crocheting and sewing my own clothing from the age of 10 on, I studied textiles & clothing in college. That lead me to 25 years of custom dressmaking and alterations work, while sewing, knitting and crocheting for my growing children. I have worked in the yarn industry for the past 3 years and have been designing my own knitting patterns. Visit my web site at Find me as DeniseInIowa on

The finished Pelerine

This is the finished Pelerine from Elizabeth Zimmerman's pattern. I used Simply Soft Shadows yarn. It made a such a soft, pretty poncho. I like the way this pattern fits too. You don't think much about a poncho "fitting" but this one looks very nice.

I would like to make a lace version of this one next. I have some natural worsted weight wool that I think would be very elegant. Is that a word that you would use to describe a poncho?
