Two weeks have passed since I first posted about my “ponchette” project. Well, I’ve progressed far enough that I can say definitively: it’s not turning out as planned. It’s supposed to look like this:

Waa waah. I’ve measured the thing a thousand times and all the circumferences match the pattern, but it just doesn’t have the length. It is supposed to have a beaded fringe, which will probably help it hang correctly.
To be fair, it doesn’t look quite so bad when it’s actually on. And the stitches are nice and even. Hopefully between blocking and the beads on the fringe, which I may make more elaborate than the pattern, it won’t look too terrible.
