    STITCH EXPLANATION

    Shell (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in indicated sp.

    NOTES

    1. Poncho is worked in one piece beg at neck edge.

    2. Poncho is worked in joined rnds of 3-dc groups. 3-dc groups are worked into the sps between 3-dc groups instead of directly into sts. A ch-sp is worked at the beg and middle of each rnd. Increases are worked into the ch-sps to form the front and back points and add more 3-dc groups.

    3. The last 4 rnds are worked in a lacy Edging pattern.

    4. If you find it difficult to join the beg ch into a ring without twisting the ch, Rnd 1 can be worked as a row, then joined into a rnd, as follows: Leaving a long beg tail, ch 47 (51), 2 dc in 4th ch from hook (3 skipped ch count as first dc), *sk next ch, 3 dc in next ch; rep from * to last ch, sk last ch; join with sl st in top of beg ch, sl st in next 2 dc – 22 (24) 3-dc groups. Use beg tail to sew gap at base of first row closed. Proceed to Rnd 2.

    5. Stitch diagrams are provided to illustrate the 3-dc Poncho pattern and the lacy Edging pattern.

    PONCHO

    Ch 44 (48) loosely. Being careful not to twist ch; join with sl st in first ch to make a ring.

    Rnd 1 (RS): Ch 3 (counts as first dc), *sk next ch, 3 dc in next ch; rep from * to last ch, sk last ch, 2 dc in same ch as beg; join with sl st in top of beg ch – you will have 22 (24) 3-dc groups.

    Rnd 2: Sl st in sp between beg ch and next dc, ch 4 (counts as dc, ch 1), 3 dc in same sp, (3 dc in next sp between 3-dc groups)10 (11) times, (3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc) in next sp between 3-dc groups for point, (3 dc in next sp between 3-dc groups) 10 (11) times, 2 dc in same sp as beg; join with sl st in 3rd ch of beg ch to complete beg point – 24 (26) 3-dc groups and a ch-1 sp at each of the 2 points.

    Rnd 3: Sl st in beg ch-sp, ch 4 (counts as dc, ch 1), 3 dc in same ch-sp, (3 dc in next sp between 3-dc groups) 11 (12) times, (3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc) in ch-1 sp of point, (3 dc in next sp between 3-dc groups) 11 (12) times, 2 dc in same ch-sp as beg; join with sl st in 3rd ch of beg ch – 26 (28) 3-dc groups and a ch-1 sp at each of the 2 points.

    Rnd 4: Sl st in beg ch-sp, ch 4 (counts as dc, ch 1), 3 dc in same ch-sp, 3 dc in each sp between 3-dc groups to ch-1 sp at next point, (3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc) in ch-1 sp of point, 3 dc in each sp between 3-dc groups to end of rnd, 2 dc in same ch-sp as beg; join with sl st in 3rd ch of beg ch – 28 (30) 3-dc groups and a ch-1 sp at each of the 2 points.

    Rep Rnd 4 until there are 60 (78) 3-dc groups and 2 ch-1 sps at points or to 2 in. (5 cm) less than desired length. Note: So that you can do the Edging, make sure that the number of 3-dc groups you have is evenly divisible by 6.

    EDGING

    Rnd 1: Sl st in beg ch-sp, ch 4 (counts as dc, ch 1), 2 dc in same space, ch 3, sk next 2 dc, sc in each of next 5 dc, *ch 3, sk next 2 dc, (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in next sp between 3-dc groups (Shell made), ch 3, sk next 2 dc, sc in each of next 5 dc; rep from * to last 2 dc, ch 3, sk last 2 dc, dc in same ch-sp as beg; join with sl st in 3rd ch of beg ch – 20 (26) Shells. Note: When working Rnd 1, the next sp between 3-dc groups may be a ch-1 sp at a point. Work (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) into the ch-1 sp the same as working into a standard sp between 3-dc groups.

    Rnd 2: Sl st in beg ch-sp, ch 4 (counts as dc, ch 1), Shell in same ch-sp, ch 3, sk next ch-3 sp, sk next sc, sc in next 3 sc, *ch 3, sk next sc, sk next ch-3 sp, (Shell, ch 1, Shell) in ch-1 sp of next Shell, ch 3, sk next ch-3 sp, sk next sc, sc in next 3 sc; rep from * to last sc, ch 3, sk last sc, sk last ch-3 sp, (2 dc, ch 1, dc) in same ch-sp as beg; join with sl st in 3rd ch of beg ch – 40 (52) Shells.

    Rnd 3: Sl st in beg ch-sp, ch 4 (counts as dc, ch 1), 2 dc in same ch-sp, Shell in ch-1 sp of next Shell, ch 3, sk next ch-3 sp, sk next sc, sc in next sc, *ch 3, sk next sc, sk next ch-3 sp, Shell in each of next 3 ch-1 sps, ch 3, sk next ch-3 sp, sk next sc, sc in next sc; rep from * to last sc, ch 3, sk last sc, sk last ch-3 sp, Shell in ch-1 sp of last Shell, dc in same ch-sp as beg; join with sl st in 3rd ch of beg ch – 60 (78) Shells.

    Rnd 4: Sl st in beg ch-sp, ch 4 (counts as dc, ch 1), 2 dc in same ch-sp, ch 1, Shell in ch-1 sp of next Shell, ch 3, sk next ch-3 sp, sc in next sc, *ch 3, sk next ch-3 sp, Shell in ch-1 sp of next Shell, (ch 1, Shell in ch-1 sp of next Shell) twice, ch 3, sk next ch-3 sp, sc in next sc; rep from * to last ch-3 sp, ch 3, sk last ch-3 sp, Shell in ch-1 sp of last Shell, ch 1, dc in same ch-sp as beg; join with slip st in 3rd ch of beg ch.

    Fasten off.

    FINISHING

    Collar

    Rnd 1: From RS, working across opposite side of foundation ch at neck edge, join yarn with sc in any ch, then sc in each ch around; do not join, work in a spiral – 44 (48) sc.

    Place a marker in last sc made to indicate end of rnd. Move marker up as each rnd is completed.

    Rnd 2: Sc in each sc around.

    Rep Rnd 2 three more times or until Collar is desired height.

    Last Rnd: Sc in each sc around; join with sl st in first sc.

    Fasten off.

    Weave in ends.
