PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.5. On diagram A.1 work first round in the entire round, then repeat A.1 and A.3 4 times in total on round. Diagram A.2 shows how every round beg and ends. A.5 shows how squares are assembled.

CROCHET INFO:
Beg every round with dc with 3 ch and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch.

STRIPES:
Work 0-4-4-4 rounds with light beige, then work * 2 rounds with off white, work 4 round with light beige *, repeat from *-* 3 times in total.

INCREASE:
On 1st round in A.4 (i.e. round with dc and ch) inc as follows: Work ch 1, around ch-space at the tip work as follows: 2 dc around ch-space, ch 3, 2 dc around same ch-space.
On 2nd round in A.4 (i.e. round with dc) inc as follows: Work 1 dc around ch, around ch-space at the tip work as follows: 2 dc around ch-space, ch 3, 2 dc around same ch-space.
----------------------------------------------------------

PONCHO:
The piece is worked from the neck down. First work squares as follows:

SQUARE:
Work 4 ch on hook size 4 mm / G/6 with light beige and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Work A.1. Diagram A.2 shows how every round beg and ends. When first round of A.1 is worked, repeat A.1 4 times in total on round. When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 16 ch-spaces and 4 corners.

Work A.3 over A.1, i.e. repeat A.3 4 times in total on round (see diagram for correct size). NOTE: First round in A.3 is not worked, it only shows how next round is worked around sts. Diagram A.2 shows how every round beg and ends. When A.3 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 80-80-100-120 dc and 4 corners. Fasten off. Square measures approx. 15-15-17-19 x 15-15-17-19 cm / 6"-6"-6 3/4"-7½" x 6"-6"-6 3/4"-7½". REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! Work 8 squares.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew squares tog edge to edge (see A.5) i.e. sew in outer loops of edge sts. These make up the upper part of poncho. Now work in the round from bottom edge of squares as follows:

FROM SQUARES AND DOWN:
ROUND 1: Beg in the side of square (see A.5), in the middle of the 1st square (i.e. 10-10-12-15 dc before corner). Work 3 ch – READ CROCHET INFO, work 1 dc in each of the first 10-10-12-15 dc, * over the 2 corners sewn tog work as follows: 1 dc in each of the next 2 dc, 2 dc around each of the next 2 corners, 1 dc in each of the next 2 dc *, then work 1 dc in every dc until next corner sewn tog (= over the next 20-20-25-30 dc), repeat from *-* over the next 2 corners sewn tog, 1 dc in each of the next 20-20-25-30 dc, over the next corner inc (see A.5) as follows: Work 1 dc around ch, around ch-space at the tip work as follows: 2 dc around ch-space, ch 3, 2 dc around same ch-space, 1 dc around next ch. Work 1 dc in every dc and from *-* over the next 8 corners sewn tog and the next 100-100-125-150 dc (i.e. 20-20-25-30 dc between each of the 2 corners sewn tog).
Around next corner inc as follows: Work 1 dc around ch, around ch-space at the tip work as follows: 2 dc around ch-space, ch 3, 2 dc around same ch-space. Work 1 dc in every dc and from *-* the entire round, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch = 276-276-326-376 dc.

ROUND 2: Work with off white - READ STRIPES. Work A.4 until 3 dc remain before ch-space in the tip, adjust to finish with 1 dc in last dc, work INCREASE – see explanation above. Repeat A.4 until next tip, work increase, work A.4 the rest of round. On every round inc 8 dc, i.e. inc 2 dc on each side of mid front/back.

Repeat stripes and A.4 until finished measurements. When stripes have been worked, piece measures approx. 36-40-42-44 cm / 14 1/4"-15 3/4"-16½"-17 1/4" from the neck.

Why on earth does this have to be written this way? Seems like it’s meant to confuse.

DROPS Design 02.07.2018 kl. 10:16:

Dear Mrs Bryson, should you have any question to this pattern, please feel free to ask your question here. For any further individual assistance, you are welcome to contact the store where you bought the yarn. Happy crocheting!

Sissau 17.05.2018 - 16:19:

Bonjour, lors du 1er tour apres les carrés, à la fin de la seconde augmentation... on ne fait pas de bride autour de la ml?

DROPS Design 18.05.2018 kl. 08:42:

Bonjour Mme Sissau, probablement pour que les 2 coins soient identiques, votre question va être transférée à nos stylistes, merci.

Sarah 11.05.2018 - 22:05:

5) Do you have any blocking instructions in terms of final blocked measurements? I can't seem to find them anywhere.

DROPS Design 12.05.2018 kl. 00:37:

Dear Sarah, the final measurments, to which the piece should be blocked to can be found at the bottom of the page, below the diagrams/charts. As for blocking, you should soak the piece thoroughly, then press the water out as much as possible, and pin the piece to size and let it dry. Happy crafting!

Sarah 11.05.2018 - 22:04:

3) In Round 2 I am utterly confused by the A.4 chart. What in the world does that mean? It appears to be showing 3 rows but only one or two stitches in a row. Help! 4) I understand the color changes but are all the stripe rows just a repeat of round 2 (and maybe the answer to question 3 will help with this issue).

DROPS Design 14.05.2018 kl. 09:04:

Dear Sarah, in A.4 you will just repeat row 2 and 3, the first row (the one with a star) is showing previous row (= row 1) to show you how to crochet next row. Stripes are (2 rows with off-white, 4 rows with light beige), ie you will work A.4 1 time in height (= 2 rows ) with off-white, A.4 2 times in height (= 4 rows) with light beige) repeat from (to) a total of 3 times while increasing at each tip on every row. Happy crocheting!

Sarah 11.05.2018 - 22:03:

I have had no problem following the charts for the squares and my square assembly is going well. I was reading ahead and have a few questions. 1) In Round 1 am I correct there is NOT an increase? 2) How many total stitches should I have at the end of round 1 (including the square ch-sp stitches I put dc\'s into)?

DROPS Design 14.05.2018 kl. 08:56:

Dear Sarah, you increase on round 1 working around the chain-spaces at each tip: 2 dc, 3 ch, 2 dc so that you get 276-276-326-376 dc + 2 3-ch-spaces at the end of round 1. Happy crocheting!

Ginger 03.04.2018 - 15:39:

Very disappointed that are no written instructions for this poncho. I have trouble trying to understand and follow the diagram instructions.

DROPS Design 03.04.2018 kl. 17:14:

Dear Ginger, please feel free to ask your question here, or for any further individual assistance, do not hesitate to contact the store where you bought your yarn. Happy crocheting!

DROPS Design 04.03.2018 kl. 17:08:

Hola Betty. No hay opción de enviar fotos. Te recomiendo acercarte a la tienda de Drops para obtener ayuda. También puedes preguntar en el foro del Workshop de Drops adjuntando la foto. Aquí tienes el link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/DROPSWorkshop/?fref=nf

Andrea Wisniewski 11.10.2017 - 04:14:

In the stripes part what does work 0-4-4-4 mean? Also it says to inc each round with 8 dc. Does this mean the rounds with the dc and then ch round? I tried to look for increase in the photo and do not see one for those rounds. If so do I just do 2 dc in one dc, 4 times in the round ( before shoulder and after shoulder area)?

DROPS Design 11.10.2017 kl. 09:13:

Dear Mrs Wisniewski, in the stripes each number refers to the size, 0 for first size and 4 for each other sizes. You will increase as stated under INCREASE-TIP = 8 dc inc on each round (= 4 dc inc on each tip). Happy crocheting!

Kats 02.10.2017 - 21:58:

Hi, on the 8 increase stitches on each row, it states mid front and mid back, should these 2 increase stitches be next to each other or spread out. Thanks

DROPS Design 03.10.2017 kl. 09:07:

Dear Kats, the increase are done in mid ch-space on both mid front and mid back, see INCREASE. Happy crocheting!

Marie 18.09.2017 - 19:52: https://www.garnstud ...

Bonjour, est-ce qu'on augmente de 8 brides a chaque tour de A.4 ou on augmente vraiment a chaque fois qu'on fait le tour. merci

DROPS Design 19.09.2017 kl. 08:43:

Bonjour Marie, on augmente 8 brides par tour (cf AUGMENTATION): dans l'arceau du milieu devant et du milieu dos, on crochète 2 brides, 3 ml, 2 brides. Bon crochet!
