Today, because of requests on Napple Notes for copies of my poncho pattern, that's what I'm going to post, to be read or ignored as fate wills.This link will let you see a picture of the finished article, as well as explain why it came into being.
Worked with 3.50mm hook and Double Knitting wool. (Final garment weighs 27 1/2 ounces, so I guess that's a good indication of the quantity needed.) Abbreviations (English notation):-
- ss = slip stitch
- dc = double crochet
- tr = treble
1st round 8 dc into ring (ss into 1st dc)
3ch, 1 treble into base of 3ch, 2 tr into next dc
[4 ch (corner) (2 tr next dc) twice] repeat x 3 , 4 ch (corner), ss to top of 3 ch.
4 ch ( to count as one tr, 1ch)
** [1 tr into next space on previous row, 1ch] x 4
3 ch, 1 tr into same corner space of previous round, 1 ch**
Repeat from ** to** 3 times
1 tr into corner space on previous row, 1 ch, 3 ch, ss to 3 rd chain of the four chain at the start of this round.
1 dc into first space between tr’s of previous row
[3 ch, 1 dc in next space] repeat all around the sides of the square but working
[1 dc, 5 ch, 1 dc] in each of the corners until the last one, which needs to be
[ 1dc, 5ch, 1 dc, 3ch, ss into first dc on the row. Fasten off.
Each subsequent square must be joined by its loops to adjacent squares while working the fourth row... i.e. I dc, 1 chain, then pick up corresponding loop on the other square and attach with a ss, 1ch, 1dc, etc. Each corner sequence will be [1 dc into corner space of working square, 2 ch, ss into corner loop of square to be attached, 2 ch, 1 dc into working square]
The edge may be finished with a hand tied fringe, or any crochet edging of your choice. - email me if you need help!
