Stunning Asymmetrical Crochet


I'm a knitter, but every once in awhile I get hooked on crochet.  I've been having a great time doing this crochet pattern.  It is an asymmetrical poncho pattern from Lion Brand.  I used yarn I already had and I love the colors.  Laid out flat it looks terribly wrong.  I thought about blocking it, but decided to try it on instead.


Whoa! It looks pretty amazing on the shoulder seam side!


It's official, I love the back!  But it doesn't have to be the back it can be the front.  They are in fact the same except for color.


The side with no seam is a little longer. I like the red!  So if the seam is on the right side, the right side is shorter and the left side is longer and the point hangs to the right in the front and to the right in the back, BUT if the seam is on the left side, the left side is shorter and the right side is longer and the point hangs to the left in the front and to the left in the back.  I wanted asymmetrical and  this poncho certainly is that in spades!  I find the overall effect stunning!
