My Brain Is Bruised But Not Broken

Update on my status: 
I have been off my meds. for over a year or so now. Things are not going well for me mentally. I am now in the process of seeking out a new doctor who will be able to start fresh and with a new perspective on my case. I have lost all of my ability to create and enjoy the things that I am passionate about such as my knitting and crafting. I will try and post as much as possible. Hugs

INDIAN RIVER PATTERN

Here's how to knit this super fast and easy poncho:
This poncho is worked in three panels.
1st panel: With US 13 needles and any variegated (preferably hand dyed yarn)  Bulky
CO-30 sts. wk. st.st. for 25"  BO 
2nd panel: CO 50 sts. wk exactly the same as panel 1.
3rd panel: CO 30 sts. rep. as panel 1.

After you have finished all 3 panels you will now seam them up in the same order 1,2,3.
Seaming instructions:
Starting at bottom (pick an end) and on the RS sew panel 1 to panel 2 for 12" then leave 8" opening for armhole, then cont. sewing to the end of the panel. Rep. this with the other panel. Sewing panel 3 to panel 2.

Now with the right side facing you, pick up 110 sts. across bottom portion which is the part where you sewed 12" tog.
Work st.st. for rows 1-4
Eyelet rows are worked throughout rows 5-7 except on the purl side do everything purl wise.
Eyelet Row 5- Purl 1, p2tog, yo, *p4, p2tog, yo, rep. from * to end.
Eyelet Row 6- K1, k2tog, yo, *k4, k2tog, yo, rep. from * to end.
Eyelet Row 7- K 1, k2tog, yo, *k4, k2tog, yo, rep. from * to end.
Row 8- Knit even.
BO.

Top (collar portion)
With wrong side facing you, pick up 110 sts. and work approx. 8"-10" or about 30 rows.
Next you are going to knit the eyelet row as you did for the bottom portion of the poncho.
Knit one row even.
BO
Now you are going to make your fringes. (that's why you knitted the eyelet rows, the fringes will be knotted through each eyelet. I made my fringes longer on the bottom then the top, I also braided some of my fringes on the top (collar) area. Simple and easy and ready to wear.
I made my fringes with 10 strands of yarn each.

I am still here...

I have so many things that need to be posted onto my blog. I am still waiting to get another computer to call my own. I have so many new patterns to be uploaded, downloaded and posted. Don't count me out I am not going anywhere. I know I haven't been posting and creating as usual, but hang in there, I'm still here. Hugs to all who follow me...
