Finishing Danglies

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!!

Danglies

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:).

  1. Hi Tracy! I haven’t crocheted in years but this poncho just could change that. You do such beautiful work! I’m excited to see this on you – I hope you share a photo soon of the fully finished project. The yarn you chose is so pretty and it looks really snuggly. ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. I don’t crochet, but I’m working on a shawl that’s just over halfway done. I took a short break to knock out some momentum building dishcloths…and because mine wore out. I know what my friends are getting for Christmas, or whatever holiday season they celebrate.
