Meet the Blooming Flowers Poncho! After I created the Blooming Flowers colorway for our May 2020 Leither Collection Subscription Box, I knew I wanted to take the green color from the yarn and create a striped poncho. I took the Blooming Flowers yarn and the Avocado yarn and created the Blooming Flowers Poncho! I am obsessed with this gorgeous poncho and I can’t wait to wear it every chance I get!

How to Seam Poncho Together:
To seam the poncho together, create a backwards “L” with the two panels (See Photos A & B). The bottom panel will be panel #1 and the top panel will be panel #1. Seam together with the whip stitch where panel #1 and #2 meet.
Fold panel #1 to meet up with the seam you just created (See Photo C). Then fold panel #2 in half so that it meets up with the other side of the panel (See Photo D). Seam together using the whip stitch where panel #1 and # meet.
How to add Collar to Poncho:
Where you see the “V” created in the poncho is the top of the poncho. Pick one side to be the front and one side to be the back (it doesn’t matter they are both the same).
Join with a slip stitch into the valley of the “V” (See Photos E & F)
Round 1: Ch 1, 1 sc in same st, 1 sc in next st and each st around, join.
Rounds 2-3: Ch 1, 1 sc in same st, 1 sc in next st and each st around, join.
Fasten off and weave in any loose ends. Optional, block the poncho once finished to relax the stitches and points.
