      I Love this shawl/skirt patter–you’ve done it once again. I would name it The Celtic Shkrawl. Thanks again for another beautiful pattern.

      OMG…..Alla…..this is gorgeous! I can’t wait to get my hands on that pattern!

      I love the panel in between.

      Anita is right, in which it looks like a celtic panel there. I am going to have to give this some thought…..

      • Alla says:

        Thanks Tina! Yes, I agree with you both ;) I think I may be interesting to work on some coat or jacket for Spring/summer in the Celtic theme ;)

      Hello Alla! This is lovely beyond belief, as usual :-) Here’s my entry:

      Evoking a garden in bloom, this 2-in-1 poncho and skirt features delicate lace motifs and a contrasting lattice panel insert. Organza flower appliques add further interest to this enchanting piece.

      • I like this description Alla, I could not get much better than that if I tried! ;)

        • Alla says:

          Sweetie, me too!!! Thank you so much Tin!! Are you writer? You are SO GREAT with!!

          • Tin Ambat says:

            Thanks for the kind words Alla and Heather :) I write business policies and procedures for a living, so yes I am a writer in that sense! And you mentioned in one of your other replies that there’s an adult size for this? That makes me very happy indeed!

            Here’s another entry:

            This 2-in-1 poncho and skirt will appeal to flower children of all ages. Repeating lace motifs are highlighted by a simple yet elegant filet panel insert, while floral organza appliques and a tasseled belt add the perfect finishing touch.

      Hi Alla
      I’m a fan of your site here in Brazil. I already bought the site and some models have done beautiful work with your recipes. . Some recipes that I bought conisgo not translate, however follow the chart you sent me and they are very similar. My rings (cap) did not make it stiff like yours. I ask you some uriliza product to harden it? Kisses and thank you for your attention. If you can, take a stranded on my site. Bjs Heloisa Helena

      Ai Alla

      “Let’s do two looks with the same piece? In addition to creative, it’s still a romantic idea.”

      I’ll try to run because my English is not perfect. I loved the piece and I’ll call it Brasileirinho look for are the colors of the flag of Brazil and how we are preparing for the World Cup football, I will honor my country.

      with love

      Hello, from Chile with very much fondness and astonished increasingly with your work my description serìa:
      Wonderful duality of fantastic colors, and modern points, closely of flower of organza, accompany the versatility of this article

      Molly says:

      I’m going to take a slightly different approach. I LOVE this piece, but think it “sells” better as just a wrap around skirt ala vintage ’70’s style.

      “2-tone ’70’s-esque wrap around skirt w/ front plaid panel bordered by peek-a-boo flower lace. Marcia Brady doesn’t hold a candle to this handmade beauty!”

      Good luck! and I can’t wait for the pattern to come out!


      • Alla says:

        Thank you so much Molly!! I LOVE your idea and I’m sure it will work VERY WELL with this design and for ladies for sure! Did I tell you that this pattern is written in 3 sizes:
        Small (toddler)/ Medium (child)/ Large (adult)?! ;)

      “A Flowering Trellis” Poncho/skirt.. To me it looks like Blue flowers growing on a green trellis.. Or a “Basket of Flowers” It is a very beautiful Pattern, you are a very talented designer and crocheter..you always have very vibrant colors which makes everything you make alive/breathtaking… Keep doing great work….

      “This is not your grandmother’s poncho! The poncho/skirt poncho piece is a modern twist on an old favourite. With two different patterns coming together, your eyes are never bored, nor is your imagination. In a Jardin Poncho you or your little ones will love being the centre of attention”.

      From Canada…

      Hello from Ausralia! This is a lovely creation! I think it could also be referred to as a “Hip Shawl!”.This “Hip Shawl” uses some crochet stitches which could also be used on other projects.The contrasting colours make the stitches stand out, and the organza applique on the insert give it a very girlie touch. It could also be a great addition to a travel wardrobe as it creates great versatility. Any girl would be thrilled to dress up in it whether it was around her shoulders or around her waist!

      Hi Alla,

      What a beautiful poncho/skirt! It’s so trendy. My daughter described it as a waterfall of flowers. Very flowing, breezy. I love it.

      How long does it take you to create a piece like that???


      • Alla says:

        Thank you so much Gen to you and your daughter!!

        This poncho in Child Size took me 2 days to make (with designing ;o). It’s really fast and fun project. And I just loved to work with Ultra Pima by Cascade Yarns and the colors ;)

      Lana says:

      Lana says:
