A Collaboration with Kathy – Susan’s Voncho

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!
