Moda Dea Cache - Poncho Plan

I just got some Moda Dea Cache yarn on sale tonight at Michael's for $3.00 a skein! I usually sells there for about $9.00 a skein, so it's quite a deal. I got 3 skeins, but I'm going to have to go tomorrow to get 2 more skeins, because I just found a pattern for a poncho that I HAVE to make! I think it will be gorgeous with this yarn. It was designed for a different yarn, but it looks like this will work. They are the same gauge, and they are both wool. Here's hoping!

Here's a link to the pattern:

And here's a link to my yarn (same color as the ones I just bought - Wink):

Did you ever make this poncho? I had a lot of left over Moda Dea Caché, and I ran across your blog post, and I made the poncho using tunisian crochet. It looks wonderful. Thanks for the inspiration!

So glad you were able to make it work for you! I tried it, and was not as happy with it as I thought i would be. I've decided to make a nice, sturdy vest instead.

The pattern isn't there anymore and I am in the same position 8 skeins and no pattern.

Hi Susan! I have searched on Ravelry, and found lots of good free patterns for Bulky yarn that works to a gauge of 15 sts = 4 inches. I'm hoping that one of those patterns will be a winner with our yarn!
