A Free Darn Good Ponchette Knit Pattern with Recycled Sari Silk Yarn – Darn Good Yarn

April 22, 2013

Eric, you’re such a sweetheart. The Darn Good Ponchette pattern comes from the brilliant mind of Eric de Rienze, a fabulous Darn Good Yarner, and the best part is, he’s giving us this pattern for free! It uses 2 skeins of the ever popular Photon Rainbow Recycled Sari Silk yarn and 1 skein of superwash fingering wool yarn.

The pattern alternates between using the silk yarn and using the wool yarn, so this ponchette will be super warm. By alternating these yarns, the ponchette will maintain its shape and will add some textural interest too.
