I thought I would do some "every day" sweaters for Audrey. Typically what I knit, crochet, or sew is more Sunday/party appropriate. When it comes to every day, Audrey prefers to wear knits--something close to pajamas since she isn't allowed to wear her actual pajamas. How can I blame her going for comfort?
So I thought, why not do some fun, casual things she can wear more?
She loved a little chenille poncho I bought for her last year and she has now outgrown so I did a pattern search and came up with the toddler version of the Going Home Poncho pattern from Lion Brand. I'm a longtime fan of Martha Stewart and thought the buzz around her "going home" and the story of this poncho was so interesting... But really I also thought the Homespun yarn specification and cute style would make it fun for Audrey to wear.
I took Audrey to the store with me and had her pick out her favorite color of yarn: purple.
