PONCHO:

The piece is worked in the round from neck and down.
With off white Paris ch 64-72 loosely on hook size 5 mm / H/8 and form a ring with one sl st in 1st ch.
Then work according to A.1 as follows:
ROUND 1: ch 5 (replace 1st dc and the first 2 ch), * 1 dc in ch-ring, ch 2 *, repeat from *-* 31 more times - see diagram A.1, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 32 dc and 32 ch-spaces.
ROUND 2: READ CROCHET INFO! ch 3, in 1st ch-space work 1 dc, ch 3 and 2 dc (= 1st dc-group), * ch 1, skip 1 ch-space, in next ch-space work 1 dc-GROUP * - read explanation above, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 1 ch and 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 16 dc-groups.
ROUND 3: Work sl sts until ch-space on 1st dc-group, work 1 FAN - read explanation above - in ch-space, * 1 sc in next ch-space (between dc-groups), 1 fan in ch-space on next dc-group *, repeat from *-*, finish with 1 sc in last ch-space and 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 16 fans.
ROUND 4: Work sl sts until the middle dc on 1st fan, ch 1, 1 sc in same dc, * ch 8, 1 sc in the middle dc on next fan *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with ch 8 and 1 sl st in 1st sc from beg of round = 16 ch-spaces.
ROUND 5: ch 5 (replace 1st dc and the first 2 ch), * in next ch-space work 1 dc, ch 2, 1 dc and ch 2, 1 dc in next sc, ch 2 *, repeat from *-* the entire round - but when repeating the last time, do not work last dc but 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 48 dc and 48 ch-spaces.
ROUND 6: ch 3, in 1st ch-space work 1 dc, ch 3 and 2 dc (= 1st dc-group), * ch 1, skip 1 ch-space, in next ch-space work 1 dc-group *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 1 ch and 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 24 dc-groups.
ROUND 7: Work sl sts until ch-space on 1st dc-group, work 1 fan in ch-space, * 1 sc in next ch-space (between dc-groups), 1 fan in next dc-group *, repeat from *-*, finish with 1 sc in last ch and 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 24 fans.
ROUND 8: Work sl sts until the middle dc on 1st fan, ch 1, 1 sc in same dc, * ch 8, 1 sc in the middle dc on next fan *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with ch 8 and 1 sl st in 1st sc from beg of round = 24 ch-spaces.
Then repeat ROUNDS 5-8 1 more time (= 3 rounds in total with fans in off white) = 36 ch-spaces on last round (i.e. 12TH ROUND).
Switch to peach at the end of last round - READ COLOR CHANGE.
Repeat ROUNDS 5-8 1 more time in peach = 54 ch-spaces on last round (i.e. 16TH ROUND), switch to apricot at the end of this round.
