The asymmetrical Poncho Ablaze pattern was inspired by the shape and textures of Autumnal Virginia Creeper and tall proud Aloe against the setting sun. I used Noro Kureyon to accentuate the feeling of rhythm and structure that I wanted to express.
The pattern is easy to master, and knits up fairly quickly too.

I have crafted since I can remember - from beautiful childhood mudpies, to the now, in which I craft mostly with fibre - wool in particular. Places, circumstance, ideology - all these change through time and experience, but the one constant is this: I like making.
My pattern designs are inspired by nature, music, laughter colours and memories.
