FO – the Lelly Poncho/Cowl

Kim’s Barn is the colour of the month, isn’t it?


There was my Lelly, my Shireen socks, and this lovely Brickless from the ladies at Yarns Untangled:


I can’t get enough of this bright, fun colour though, so today I wanted to show off my vacation FO – Lelly, by Martina Behm. I love her work, and one thing that many of her pattern shave in common is simple, elegant texture, perfect for demonstrating gradient yarns.


I started Lelly quite a few weeks ago, and then it fell beneath the radar for a while. When Tito and I decided to drive to Quebec City for the weekend I needed easy car knitting, and there it was!


From there it grew at a really good pace, owing to the simple construction and the delight of watching the colours change.


Before I knew it we were on the blocking boards.


Lelly looks gorgeous when worn casually as a cowl, and also lovely as a poncho, though I personally think I’m less likely to wear it that way.

Definitely love it though, and it shows off ombré yarn like nothing else!
