I'm trying to track down a poncho pattern, it was on display at one of the stands but I don't know the company name and I can't find it on Ravelry. It had a large cabled band that either folded or buttoned at the front. I know that's not very descriptive but I think if you saw it you'll know which one I mean. Any idea where I can find the pattern or the company name? It was one of the stands around the edge, and it might have been one of the alpaca sellers, but I'm not sure about that part. Any ideas anyone? Thank you.

Bump....

Also adding some detail as I realised my previous post is a little sparse on useful information.

The poncho was fairly plain, I think the only decorative stitch was the cabled bank that formed the collar. It was a nice soft grey.

The stall had only this one garment on a wooden mannequin thing, but they had a few baskets of yarn all in natural colours. It was only a small stand.

I am sure I have seen this same garment in previous years. I'm not sure if they sell it as a garment or a pattern, or if it is just there to show how the yarn knits up. Hope someone can give me a clue!

Bump again.... Did I imagine it? Maybe I did. Better get designing one!

Was it on the Jo storie stand? In hall M? She had a lovely grey knit slouchy cardio on a dummy - got the patterns for her slouchy beanie and Chloe cardigan

Or can you remember stands near to it?

I can't help but I have sent this thread to a friend who was also there in case she knows.

I will ask my mummy smile

Oh, hello! I gave up checking for replies, I thought it was a lost cause smile

I've been in touch with Jo Storie, it wasn't hers. She very kindly had a look at her floor plan thing and suggested possibly The Wool Shop. This sounded right, as I remembered it being a totally vague, unhelpful name! I have been in touch with them too, and they said that, if it was their stand, it would have been This one: www.thewoolshopleeds.co.uk/shop.htm You have to click Super Chunky Poncho, it's the beige one. However, I am certain that the one I saw had a plain body, and the cable on the neck was one that looks sort of like letter Ys. The shape of the neck is similar though. Plus, they only sell it as a kit, not as a pattern.

I'm sorely tempted to just design it myself. Stocking stitch body, separate collar to be stitched on afterwards. (I was planning to change the cable on the neck anyway, as I prefer a twisty one.)

My mum couldn't remember anything, sorry, but I may get a random text one day with something she has remembered grin I could really do with a poncho right now, I'm freezing!!

Look at Deramores then search poncho and then Bergere de France - any good?

TiredofZombies Thu 06-Dec-12 22:07:24

Thanks guys. It's not any of the ones on Deramores. I've been scouring Ravelry as well with no luck. I have some Sirdar Hug which would make a lovely poncho. I was going to make myself a snuggly jumper but there aren't many patterns available and it's an odd gauge so there aren't many patterns that will work. (It would be the one and only time I actually get the right gauge on atest square, wouldn't it?)
