Susan’s favorite vest (one she bought in a store) was lovingly worn, but quickly wearing out. She and I designed a Voncho (vest/poncho), based on her vest, with a custom fit perfect for Susan.
Our first step was for Susan to select a yarn she loved. She chose Blue Sky Fibers Baby Alpaca Sport and it would drape wonderfully for our design! Susan knit a gauge swatch which we then used to calculate pattern requirements for correct sizing.
Details include a professionally-finished hem, easily created by turning the edges and sewing them to the wrong side. The pockets were sewn on a slant. Susan provided the added feature of a lovely button on each side. Every step of the way, Susan knit the pattern with perfect stitches!
We love the Voncho; love how beautifully it looks and fits on Susan. She is so satisfied that she just completed a second one for her sister! Susan and Kathy – what a team!
