Summer Whimsey

This pattern is based on a Vintage pattern by Erich Engeln – Model 36. I have re-charted it with modern symbols. The pattern was originally a collar. I have reworked it, changing it from a pattern knit flat to a pattern worked in the round to create a modern ponchette or shoulder covering.

Summer Whimsey is a light and fun summer piece. This version is heavily beaded, but it would be equally beautiful without the beads. The beads are placed with a crochet hook through the body of the piece. For the edging the beads are pre-strung and crocheted into the chain bind-off. The small version used only one colour of beads and the larger used 4 colours of beads.
