I tend to keep most of the scraps, wool and textile. Nasty habit, sometimes I feel like a hamster :)
So, one day I looked at a pile of tiny woolen threads that I collected trough some time and saw an oportunity to make something out of it. I took a crochet hook and started to use one of basic crochet-patterns (I am not sure about the word I’m supposed to use in this phrase). Some of the threads were thin, so I duplicated or even triplicated them to fit the thicker ones.
The poncho is small-type, it’s length reaches my elbows. Suites perfectly as a color bomb on darkish shirts and pants/skirts.
Dress up outerwear with deep shawl collars and sew up a lovely fitted dress with a flounced hemline.
