Cupcakes

Rita visited this morning and brought in her latest project to show off. It's awesome.
Pattern: Margo (purchased on Ravelry)
Yarn: tosh vintage
Rita knit the larger size and used every bit of 5 skeins. Her colour is Jasper.
Margo Poncho uses aran/bulky-weight yarn and is worked flat, in two pieces (front and back), and attached at the shoulders using the three needle bind-off technique (so it’s completely seamless!). Front and back sides are buttoned together. Both the front and back feature an easy faux cable stitch pattern that is fun and interesting to knit (they look similar to cables but are actually created with just slipped stitches and yarn overs). The back piece is longer than the front, creating a more modern silhouette.

We have something very special coming next week. Lorna's Laces dyed a colour of Solemate exclusively for us.
They named it Cupcake. Now I'm hungry :)

Solemate was originally made as a sock yarn but we've used it for scarves and shawls too.

Visited Margo on Ravelry. Did you make a length adjustment to your version?

Hi Candice
Rita made hers with the front and back the same length.
