Come By The Hills
Come by the Hills is a traditional tune "Buachaill On Eirne" paired with lyrics by Gordon Smith: "Stand where the peaks meet the sky and the loughs meet the sea, Where the rivers run clear and the bracken is gold in the sun, And the cares of tomorrow can wait till this day is done."
A stunning, mirrored Bavarian cable panel with a touch of lace is worked down the center of this rectangular poncho. Tiny cable columns along each side echo the center panel design while the intermediate area is worked in Stockinette stitch. Hemlines/cuff areas are finished with a seeded rib border and an Icelandic Bind Off.
This poncho is worked flat. Beginning with a provisional cast on, it is worked as one piece up to the neck opening. The work is then split in two, with each side worked separately, at the same time using two skeins of yarn, until the neck opening is finished. A few additional stitches are added to frame the neck opening. Once the neck opening is complete, the work is joined again and worked as one piece; the hemline finishes with a seeded rib border. The provisional cast on stitches are then picked up and the opposite hemline is finished to match the first.
Stitch pattern is charted with written directions for the chart provided.
