Now that we are well into summer, I thought this would be the perfect time to put together some kits for the Knitting by the Pool Ponchette pattern.

I dyed up some new colorway combinations just for this. The kit includes everything you'll need to make this fun ponchette, including:
  • One skein of a sock-weight assigned pooling colorway
  • One matching semi-solid to go with the assigned pooling colorway
  • The Knitting by the Pool Ponchette pattern instantly downloadable

These are ready to ship so you can start knitting by the poolside right away!

 

About the Pattern
This is a small ponchette that is fun and easy to make and versatile enough to wear all year long. I love shawls too, but as a mom, small ponchos like this are my go-to cozy accessory because they stay put so nicely. They are great for air-conditioned offices in summer, cool evening in fall and spring, and an extra layer of warmth in winter. Other than the lace section at the end, this is a great pattern for knitting while chatting or watching a movie.

Needles and Notions
  • US Size 5 / 3.75 mm circular needles that are 24 inches in length
  • US Size 5 / 3.75 mm circular needles that are 40 inches in length
  • Two different stitch markers
  • A ruler

Yarn Requirements

For the assigned pooling option, you'll need 300 yards of a sock-weight assigned pooling colorway and 300 yards of a semi-solid or variegated colorway to go with it. The kit has the yarn you'll need. 

The different options include three different yarn bases, each of which includes plenty of yarn. Here are the stats on the three different yarn bases:

  • Sock Perfection has 450 yards per skein, and it is made of 80% extra-soft superwash merino and 20% nylon. It is a 4-ply yarn.
  • Sparkly Merino Sock has 409 yards per skein, and it is made of 92% superwash merino and 8% lurex. It is a 4-ply yarn.
  • Stained Glass Sock has 400 yards per skein, and it is made of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon. It is a 2-ply yarn, and one ply alternates between black and white wool.

 

Alternate Pattern Option

If you prefer shawls to ponchettes, you can use the same yarn to knit Deborah Bowanko's Pools of Color shawl. If you choose that option, be sure to pick one of the sets dyed on Sock Perfection because you'll need all 450 yards for the assigned pooling colorway.
