In case you were wondering, yes, that's me in those pictures. I had an extremely kind, patient and talented photographer - my big girl M.!

With both of my girls having a poncho now (well almost - I'm about to finish little H's one) I couldn't s tay behind, right? I've always had something with "wraps". I have several and especially like them at this time of the year. They're incredibly cozy, but not always handy, I admit - they tend to unwrap eas ily and get in the way. Not so with a poncho, I figured. Now, on several occasions I've seen women wearing this kind of poncho here which I really liked - a very simple, minimalistic yet elegant interpretation of the class ic poncho, with only one seam apparently. With three meters of knit fabric, I thought, I might as well give it a try. And I'm glad I did! Barely a couple of days old, it's already become a favorite! I wear it on top of a light sweater or long sleeved shirt, with jeans and boots. And it looks great, I mus t say. Casual-chic. The perfect outfit for a nice autumn day (well, any day really). Since I us ed a not too heavy knit fabric, there's a nice natural drape to it as well. As it's really super easy to make I decided I wanted to share this project. If it weren't for the step-by-step photos I probably would have finished it in under half an hour! Also, while making the poncho I figured out a new and very s atisfactory way of finishing corners. I'm probably reinventing the wheel here - if so, please, forgive me - but it worked out really nicely, s o I definitely will use that technique again! Ready to get started?
