Rodeo Drive Ponch, 2nd Ed.

Free sample

Time for some luxury! This poncho design was inspired by a stroll down Rodeo Drive on a recent trip I had to California. It is knit in a cashmere-blend yarn, for the ultimate in softness and stitch definition. The techniques used are very simple – this pattern is appropriate for anyone with at least advanced beginner skills, meaning you’re comfortable with both knitting and purling. All of the other techniques are demonstrated in the four-part video tutorial.

At the request of petite knitters and knitters living in very chilly climates, I’ve updated the Rodeo Drive Poncho pattern to include instructions for a poncho with a shallower neckline. The pattern is identical, otherwise. 

* Pattern includes links to video tutorial.

About the author

 My name is Staci. I've been an avid knitter for over 35 years. It's my passion.

I am a knitwear designer and knitting teacher. I combine these skills to create patterns with video tutorials that ease knitters into advanced techniques, such as socks, sweaters, cables, and colorwork knitting. Additionally, I teach knitting classes at various locations in Austin, Texas. 

On verypink.com you'll find my blog, links to my knitting patterns, as well as technique and tutorial videos. All of my videos are shot and produced by Parker at TinyCourage.com

Besides knitting, I enjoy spending time with my three Basenjis - Ike, Abe, and Tippy. I also like to put the needles down for a while to watch a baseball game, or to get out for a nice run.

Designing and Making Hats and Headpieces is an inspiring instructional guide to the art of millinery. It explains how to go about designing a hat, what equipment and materials you will need, and the techniques required to get started. It divides the projects into three types of hat - blocked, headpieces and fascinators, and cut and sewn - and thereby describes how to make fourteen different designs. It goes on to suggest ways of finishing the hats with embellishments such as bows, felt, veiling and flowers. Drawing on her rich experience, the author generously shares her ideas and her advice so that you can achieve a professional finish and make a design that flatters the wearer and completes an outfit. With beautiful photographs and clear instructions, this book is an essential guide for anyone who wants to design and make a hat for a daily outing, a special occasion or a costume. The comprehensive coverage introduces stitching, shaping and sewing techniques - the essential skills of millinery; advises on design, where to find inspiration and fitting hats; covers blocked hats - five styles explained with different materials and trimming ideas; includes headpieces and fascinators - seven designs, including a bridal suggestion with lace, feathers and flowers; and cut and sewn hats - making the beret and bandeau using dressmaking techniques. With further ideas for trimmings, including advice on how to use bows, additional felt, veiling, flowers and much more, this is an inspirational book aimed at everyone interested in hats, millinery and fashion. Over 400 stunning colour photographs support the step-by-step instructions and illustrate the beauty of these hats.
