I was tasked with developing a one-skein pattern for the goodie bags at an upcoming knitting workshop. Since the workshop will be mid-April, I wanted to make something fun, Spring/Summer-ish and unique. And here's what I designed: Sunburst Spectacular! Just in time for Summer evenings ... a lovely, lacy poncho/shawl that shows the multi-colors to perfection! Sample is knit using one skein of Tofutsies, but any sock-weight yarn would work equally well - and the colorways available in the hand-dyes are amazing! The directions are both charted and row-by-row with notes for changing the design from in-the-round to a flat, shawl-style are included. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY ability to understand lace: k2tog, ssk, yo, k3tog knitting in the round (or flat if want the shawl-like version) GAUGE it is not critical to get gauge for this design but you want to come close to obtain the drape/flow that I obtained: 6sts x 8 rnds = 1" stockinette (blocked) SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS one size fits all neck - 9" wide by 3" deep length - 17" from neck to hem-point hem circumference - approx 128"
