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

Lace Pelerine (poncho)

I finally have enough of my lace pelerine knit to show it off. This is from Elizabeth Zimmerman's pattern with a lace design that I found on the Knit Baby Surprise list. There are 4 panels like this with increases between.

The yarn is the dyeable worsted from Knitpicks. It is really soft, yummy yarn. I am using a 16" long size 10 needle but I need to change to a longer circular soon. This one is getting rather crowded!

My class starts on Tuesday night. I will be teaching how to make the simple stockinette version but I really wanted to show them some other options. I think I have a good start on this to show them what it can do. This is such a versatile pattern.
