We recently moved to a snow-less area. The other day it was snowing back “home” and I was feeling homesick, so I crocheted a snowman.
I started a tradition a few years ago of making each of my 5 kids an ornament each Christmas. As soon as I finished this little guy I knew this year’s theme would be snowmen. They are so cute, and work up so quickly, that I have been making them for everyone else on my list, too.
A photo tutorial,
with short video (video to be added later,) on how to work cables on a tube (or panel) knit on a circular knitting machine. You could probably apply it also to loom knit ribbing.

I said I was working on a project and actually finished it! Amazing.
My New Year’s resolution this year was to get over my fear of color work in knitting. I think it’s safe to say I have succeeded!
This pattern/recipe only requires beginner knitting skills. If you can knit a basic corner to corner washcloth, you can easily knit this poncho. The poncho can be made with any yarn, in any size, and with or without a hood.
