Mo’Rockin’ Sunrise Pochette
Sunrises inspire the shape of the Mo’Rockin’ Sunrise pochette. It begins with a band of rows that gradually increase in height, evoking light rays. The textured peaks of the rows give way to increasingly wider rows, eventually blooming into a curved peak at the top before tapering once more to a point. This design is worked in six panels and joined together with only slip stitches, passing one stitch from each row through two stitches from the previous row that were worked identically before being joined.
This is a fun, interesting, and easy-to-make shawl or poncho that can wear around the shoulders, or slung like a scarf. The pattern works of tall stitches, which give it texture, short stitches, and chain stitches will use in between to keep things simple. The yarn I have used is little and lofty which gives it drape, so you could use bulkier yarn and still get good results.
