The square is finished. Fasten off.

NOTE: If you want a bigger poncho repeat ROUND 15-16 until desired measurements.

ASSEMBLY:
Place squares as shown on chart so that a colored square is mid front and mid back and a white square in each side.
Place 2 squares on top of each other WS against WS, and crochet them tog with white as follows: ** Work 1 sc in ch-space in corner on 1st square, ch 1, 1 sc in ch-space in corner on 2nd square, * ch 3, 1 sc in next ch-space on 1st square, ch 1, 1 sc in next ch-space on 2nd square *, repeat from *-* until next corner, finish with 3 ch for transition to next square **, repeat from **-**.

NECK EDGE:
Work a finishing edge around the neck on hook size 5 mm / H/8 as follows: Beg with light turquoise and work first round in A.2 but adjust in the corner mid front and mid back so that neck edge lies nicely mid front. Switch to light ice blue and work 2nd round of A.2 the same way. Fasten off.

EDGE AROUND THE BOTTOM OF PONCHO:
Work a finishing edge around the bottom of poncho on hook size 5 mm / H/8 as follows: Beg with white and work pattern according to A.2 AT THE SAME TIME work STRIPES-EDGE - see explanation above. NOTE: To continue the edge into a nice tip as on squares it is important to continue inc mid front and mid back, i.e. in the middle ch-space mid front and mid back work 3 dc + 3 ch + 3 dc on every round.
When edge is done, fasten off.

FRINGES:
1 fringe = 6 threads of approx. 40 cm / 16''. Fold the threads double, thread the loop through the opening between 2 dc-groups and pull the yarn ends through the loop (so that 12 strands hang down in every fringe). Beg with 1 fringe in ch-space in the tip mid front and mid back, then insert fringes along the diagonal edge on poncho between every other dc-group.
