Oh my goodness, I am so close I can hardly stand it! My Cross Country Poncho is ALMOST finished. Really, it could actually be considered done now, but I don’t like tassels and this project calls for them on each end.
So…. I put my inspiration cap on and decided this poncho would look great with a bunch of “danglies” along the bottom. GENIUS!! I think I’m in love! Lol:)
Aren’t these just the cutest things? I like them so much better than those 1970’s grandma tassels.
I didn’t have a pattern for these. I designed them as I went. But if you decide to add a dangly or two to one of your projects, I have written a short tutorial for you. Yea!!
5dc, Ch 6, sl st in third ch from hook, ch 2, dc on right of long ch in loop formed by joining st, 7 dc on left of long chain in same loop, join to first dc with sl st, join to 2nd st of first ch 3, ch 1, join to original dc with sl st, repeat.
Here are the same directions with pictures–

There you have it! One SWEET, hipster Danglie made in no time at all:). They look awesome all together hanging on an edge or border.
The next time I post about this poncho will be for a final photo shoot. Yea!! I’m so excited:). My poncho should be ready for the cooler weather that shouldn’t be too far away.
I hope you will give these fun little Danglies a try. They are not as hard as they look and really do add a lot of texture and charm. I hope you will let me know if you do:).
