Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
Work 3 ch, work 1 tr – but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), work 1 tr the same way in the same st, pull thread through all 3 sts on hook = 1st bobble on round.

Work 1 tr – but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), work 2 tr the same way in the same st, pull thread through all 4 sts on hook.

The poncho is worked in two parts and sew tog when finished.

Crochet 5 ch on hook size 4 mm with Safran and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 1: 1 ch, 12 dc in ch-ring.
ROUND 2: * 15 ch, 1 sl st in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 10 ch and 1 dtr in 1st dc from beg of 1ST ROUND, turn = 12 ch-loops.
ROUND 3: Sl st until the middle of 1st ch-loop, in the same loop work [1 BOBBLE START - Read explanation above, 4 ch, 1 BOBBLE - Read explanation above] = 1st corner, * work [4 ch, 1 dc in next ch-loop] 2 times, 4 ch, in next ch-loop work [1 bobble, 4 ch, 1 bobble] = corner *. Repeat from *-* the entire round. When repeating from *-* the last time do not work [1 bobble, 4 ch, 1 bobble] but finish with 1 sl st in 1st bobble. Cut and fasten the thread.

Work 28-32-40 squares in total.
Sew squares tog alongside and then across. Place the squares with 4-4-5 squares in breadth and 7-8-8 squares in height. Place 2 and 2 squares on top of each other and crochet them tog as follows: Work 1 dc in ch-loop in the corner on 1st square, 2 ch, 1 dc in ch-loop in the corner on 2nd square, * 2 ch, 1 dc in next ch-loop on 1st square, 2 ch, 1 dc in next ch-loop on 2nd square *, repeat from *-*, finish with 2 ch, 1 dc in ch-loop in the corner on 1st square, 2 ch, 1 dc in ch-loop in the corner on 2nd square. NOTE: Make sure that the transitions between every square are pretty when the squares are worked tog alongside. Piece measures approx. 36-36-45 cm in breadth and 63-72-72 cm vertically.

Work the same way as on PART 1.

Crochet the parts tog as follows: Place the short side on part 1 against right long side on part 2 (36-36-45 cm up on the bottom edge). Work the 2 parts tog the same way as before (1 dc in the corner, 2 ch and 1 dc in next ch-loop etc.). Then work the short side on part 2 against part 1 the same way but against the left long side on part 1.

1 fringe = 6 threads of approx. 40 cm. Fold the threads double, thread the loop through 1 ch-loop and pull the thread ends through the loop (so that 12 threads hang down in every fringe). Insert fringes on the diagonal sides on the poncho as follows: Insert 1 fringe in the 3 ch-loops between the corners on every square and 1 fringe in the ch-loop between the squares.

Bonjour Je suis perdue j’ai mes 16 bandes de 4 carrés pour une taille L mais je ne comprend pas comment les assembler puis je avoir de làide svp?

DROPS Design 28.05.2018 kl. 08:28:

Bonjour Pouic Pick, Cette vidéo montre comment assembler les carrés (en les crochetant en bandes, d'abord , dans un sens puis dans l'autre ) , puis quand vous avez vos 2 rectangles, assemblez-les en les crochetant de la même façon mais cette fois comme dans cette vidéo. Bon crochet!

Ik heb deze poncho gehaakt met garen dorps safean en is zeer mooi geworden. Nu na het wassen op de hand zijn alle draadjes van de franjes gespleten. Dit ziet er heel rommelig uit. Hebben jullie en idee wat ik hier mee kan doen. Knoopje onderin elk draadje staat niet mooi, en ik wil ze niet afknippen. De poncho is zo niet te dragen en dat is toch wel heel jammer.

Hallo Petra, Dat is erg jammer om te horen. Het beste is om even contact op te nemen met het verkooppunt waar je het garen hebt gekocht, als er klachten of problemen zijn met het garen.

Marie 27.01.2018 - 00:15:

Bonjour, Pour une taille L, faut-il assembler 4 carrés 8 fois puis assembler les 8x4 carrés entre eux ? Bien à vous

DROPS Design 29.01.2018 kl. 08:46:

Bonjour Marie, tout à fait, on assemble les carrés par bandes, quand vous avez 8 bandes de 4 carrés, crochetez la 1ère bande à la 2ème puis la 3ème à la 2ème et enfin la 4ème à la 3ème. Bon assemblage!

Als ich dieses Model gesehen habe, dachte ich: das muss ich haben. Dank der Maschenprobe klappt es auch mit anderer Wolle. Der Poncho ist genau so raus gekommen wie auf dem Bild. Nur habe ich die Fransen weggelassen. Ich liebe dieses Teil.

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! I shouldn't have been so upset, because i knew there was an answer, i just couldn't figure it out and began to voice my frustration. Again I apologize. Sincerely, Lois Simon

Lois Simon 19.10.2017 - 23:04:

I apologize for my abruptness... Im just so upset about this. Thanking you for any help that you can give. Your video on how to put it together doesn't tell you how to make it go diagonally. Again i apologize. I'm just upset about this.

Lois Simon 19.10.2017 - 22:59:

Question 1: what is place 2 and 2 squares? Question 2: what do you mean by sew squares tog alongside and then across.. -- How? When... at what point? Question 3. for xtra large.... confusing how do u put it together. instructions are not clear

DROPS Design 20.10.2017 kl. 09:14:

Dear Mrs Simon, you will crochet squares 2 by 2 as shown in video (remember to follow pattern, video only shows technique). You firs sew the square together alongside = in a long row then accross = crochet the rows together. Happy crocheting!

LOIS SIMON 19.10.2017 - 22:54:

And now i just got that my comment is to long... Oh My God.... wow. And i have been crocheting for decades... I'm sorry that i started this pattern.

Heiltje 20.02.2017 - 19:28:

Goedenavond, ik heb een vraag over dit patroon. Ik heb nu drie vierkantjes gehaakt maar de bloemblaadjes zijn niet mooi plat, maar krullen iets op. Nu vroeg ik me af, moet ik de vierkantjes als ze klaar zijn opspannen

DROPS Design 21.02.2017 kl. 16:01:

Hoi Heiltje. Zijn de afmetingen voor de vierkant correct (dwz, ca. 8.5 x 8.5 cm), dan komt het goed. En opspannen is altijd handig. Dan wordt het vierkantje mooi glad en persoonlijk vind ik het ook makkelijker om te monteren.

Lynn 20.01.2017 - 17:28:

Why does it say sew squares tog and then crochet them tog, a bit confused. thanks

DROPS Design 23.01.2017 kl. 09:02:

Dear Lynn, squares will be crocheted tog as explained later in the pattern. Happy crocheting!
