Three Shades of Tweed
This is a easy and fun pattern using a, “new to me” stitch I ran across called The Feather Stitch.
The Pattern is for a size.. Small/Teen. However… it is very easy to make bigger by adding more foundation chains & rows. Better explanation will be down in the Notes section.
I ran across this stitch when I was looking for one that I saw along time ago! LOL. This stitch is called the “Feather Stitch”. Once you have done a row or two, this stitch is easy, fun and fast. A Tutorial is on YouTube by Hooked by Robin. Her video was very well done and easy to follow. She also has a video for the Half Double Crochet Foundation I used in this pattern.
I just Love the texture and design of this stitch. When Fall rolls around again it will definitely be a stitch I will use again.
What you will need…
6 Skeins Carons Simply Soft Tweeds… 2 skeins Off white, 2 skeins Taupe & 2 Skeins Heather grey…. You can also use any yarn you would like that is a Medium ( 4) weight
Stitch marker, Scissors and Tapestry needle
Ch. = Chain
HDC = Half Double Crochet
SK = Skip a Stitch
Refer to Hooked by Robin Video link for Visual… Feather Stitch is as follows, you do not Finish Each Stitch , this is several steps to complete one stitch.
Make sure to pull your loops up so they are even, and have a little slack.
At the End, you will have 7 loops on hook and will yarn over and pull thru all 7 to complete the stitch.
* Yarn over – place hook in Ch.1- pull loop up ( 3 loops on hook) – Yarn Over place hook in SK stitch ( previous row, pull loop up even with the 4 loops on hook, now you have 5 loops on hook) – Yarn over – Place hook in next Ch.1 space, pull up a loop , you have 7 loops on hook.. yarn over and pull thru all 7 loops* This is the Feather stitch.
When on second row and every row after it will be … Into Previous Rows.. Ch.1 instead of SK stitch space.
This Poncho is designed by making 2 panels and sewing them together.
It is also a Size Small / Teen. It is very easy to modify by adding more foundation chains. and more rows to each color section….Just be mindful to keep your stitch count a Even number + 1
Make 2 panels
Chain.. 125 HDC foundation stitches
Row 1.) Ch.1, Turn, *HDC – Ch.1 – SK* repeat *to* across, ending with a HDC in last stitch.
Row 2.) Ch.1, Turn, HDC, Ch.1, * Feather stitch – Ch.1*, Repeat *to* across.
You will repeat Row 2 .. 11 more times. At the end of the 11th row, switch colors
With New Color .. Repeat Row 2. for a total of 12 rows. at end of 12th row, change color
With Last Color.. Repeat Row 2. for a total of 12 rows
Ch.1 and do a row of HDC’s across. Place a HDC in the top of Each Feather stitch & Ch.1 space. you should have 125 HDC’s at end of row ( the same as your starting foundation chain), fasten off and set aside.
Make the second panel.
When done with both panels. Sew or SS the 2 panels together and add fringe to each long end of the poncho.
I offset the colors of the fringe, to the colors on the poncho. Again this is a preference and you can do as you wish for your poncho!
Enjoy, Thank you for stopping by and have a Wonderful Week… Til Next time..
