PONCHO
Crochet the piece from the top and down.
Crochet loosely 70-76-84 ch on hook size 5 with 1 thread of Alpaca and 1 thread of Cotton Viscose. Crochet 1st row as follows: 1 tr in the 4th ch from the hook, 1 tr in each remaining 66-72-80 ch = 68-74-82 tr. Turn the piece. Read crochet info! Continue to crochet tr’s forward and backward at the same time inc as follows (to inc 1 tr crochet 2 tr’s in 1 tr):

Size S/M: Inc 1 tr in every other tr but finish with only 1 tr in the last tr = 101 tr. Crochet 1 row without inc. On the next row inc 1 tr in every 3rd tr = 134 tr. Crochet 2 rows without any inc. On the next row inc. 47 tr evenly distributed on row = 181tr

Size M/L: Inc 1 tr in every other tr but finish with only 1 tr in the last tr = 110 tr. Crochet 1 row without inc. On the next row inc 1 tr in every 3rd tr = 146 tr. Crochet 1 row without any inc. On the next row inc. 1 tr in every 4th tr = 182 tr. Crochet 1 row without any inc, and on the next row inc. 35 tr evenly distributed on row = 217 tr.

Size XL/XXL: Inc 1 tr in every other tr but finish with only 1 tr in the last tr = 122 tr. Crochet 1 row without inc. On the next row inc 1 tr in every 3rd tr = 162 tr. Crochet 1 row without any inc. On the next row inc. 1 tr in every 4th tr = 202 tr. Crochet 2 rows without any inc, and on the next row inc. 51 tr evenly distributed on row = 253 tr.

When all inc. are complete the piece measures 10-11-13 cm. Now crochet pattern – see diagram 1. Crochet 2 repeats, but start the second repeat in the row marked with arrows. Now crochet 2-3-4 rows of dtr as follows: NB: If you want to adjust the length of the poncho either add or subtract a row of dtr’s.

1st row: Remember crochet info: Crochet 1 dtr around each ch-loop with a ch in between = 90-109-127 dtr, turn the piece.
2nd row: Crochet 1 dtr into each dtr but instead of 1 ch in between crochet 2 ch’s – Size S/M finish here before the last pattern repeat = 91 dtr’s.
3rd row: Crochet a dtr in each dtr but now crochet 3 ch’s in between each dtr instead of 2 ch – size M/L finish here before the last pattern repeat = 109 dtr’s.
4th row: Crochet 1 dtr into each dtr with 3 ch’s in between each dtr. Size XL/XXL finish here before the last pattern repeat = 127 dtr’s.

After the last row of dtr crochet Diagram 1 again from the beginning, but finish the pattern after the 7th row in diagram – NB: Crochet 1st row in diagram as follows so the pattern fits: 3 ch (=1 tr), 1 ch, *1 tr around the ch-loop, 1 ch, 1 tr around the next ch-loop*, repeat from *-* to the end of the row = 180-216-252 ch-loops.

Buttons: Crochet a “cover” for the 3 buttons with Cotton Viscose as follows: Crochet 2 ch, continue to crochet 16 tr in the 1st of the 2 ch crochet, finish off with a sl st in the top of the 1st tr (= 1st round 1).
2nd round: Crochet 1 dc into each tr and finish off with a sl st in the 1st dc from beginning of round.
3rd round: Crochet 1 tr into every other dc and finish off with a sl st in the 1st tr from beginning of the round = 8 tr.
Put the buttons into the cover, sew around the edge and pull together. Sew the buttons on the right side of the poncho. The top button should be approx 1 cm from the edge and leave 4-6 cm in between the others.

Button loop: Crochet loops for the buttons on left side as follows: 1 dc in the corner of the neck, 1 dc into the same st, *4 ch, skip 3-3.5-4 cm, 1 dc in the next st*, repeat a total of 3 times - a total of 3 loops matching the location of the buttons.
