PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.5. Diagrams A.1a and A.1b show how round beg and ends.

CROCHET INFO:
Beg every dc round with 3 ch (these ch do not replaces first dc). At the end of round work 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round.
NOTE: When working A.5 beg round with 3 ch. At the end of round work 1 dc in first st worked on round (i.e. st with the 3 ch in), then 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round.

WORK 2 TR TOG:
Work 1 tr around ch-space below but wait with last pull through (= 2 loops on hook), skip 1 sc and work 1 tr around next ch-space but on last pull through, pull yarn through all loops on hook.

WORK 3 TR TOG:
Work 1 tr but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), work 1 more tr but wait with last pull through (= 3 loops on hook), work 1 more tr but on last pull through, pull yarn through all loops on hook.


MESH PATTERN:

ROUND 1: * Start with 1st row of A.5, work the 4 dc in first/next dc with marker, work (1 ch, ship 1 dc, 1 dc in next dc) until 1 dc remains before next marker, work 1 ch, skip next dc *, repeat from *-* 3 times more. There is now 4 repeats of A.5 on round.

ROUND 2: * Work A.5 around first/next ch-space with marker,
then work 1 dc in next dc, 1 ch, 1 dc around first ch-space, (1 ch, skip 1 dc, 1 dc in next ch-space) until 1 ch-space remains before next repeat of A.5, work 1 ch, 1 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* 3 times more.

ROUND 3: * Work A.5 around first/next ch-space with marker,
then work (1 ch, skip 1 dc, 1 dc around next ch-space) until next
repeat of A.5, 1 ch *, repeat from *-* 3 times more.

----------------------------------------------------------

PONCHO:
Worked in the round, top down. First inc mid front, mid back and on each shoulder, then inc only mid front and mid back.

Work 153-163-163 ch on hook size 4.5 mm/US 7 with Paris and form a ring with 1 sl st. Work 3 ch – see CROCHET INFO! Then work 1 dc in each of the next 3-1-1 ch, * skip ch 1, 1 dc in each of the next 5 ch *, repeat from *-* 24-26-26 more times on round = 128-136-136 dc + 3 ch on round. Now insert 4 markers from beg of round without working: Insert 1 marker in 1st dc on round (= mid back), skip 31-33-33 dc, insert 1 marker in next dc (= shoulder), skip 31-33-33 dc, insert 1 marker in next dc (= mid front), skip 31-33-33 dc, insert 1 marker in next dc (= shoulder), there are now 31-33-33 dc between last marker and beg of round.

Now work MESH PATTERN - see explanation above. When 1st-
3rd round have been worked, repeat 2nd and 3rd round until 6-7- 8
rounds with mesh pattern have been worked - see diagram A.4a
and A.4b to see how to work the whole inc in each side of A.5. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! Piece measures approx. 8-9-10 cm / 3"-3½"-4''.

Work next round as follows AT THE SAME TIME dec 0-8-8 dc evenly (= 0-4-4 dc dec on each side of mid back and mid front): *Work (2 dc, ch 3, 2 dc) around ch-space (= mid back on 1st repetition and mid front on 2nd repetition), then work 1 dc in every dc and 1 dc around every ch until next inc dc-group, work 3 dc around ch-space (= shoulder), work 1 dc in every dc and 1 dc around every ch until inc dc-group (mid front on 1st repetition and mid back on 2nd repetition)*, repeat from *-* 1 more time.

There are now 117-125-133 dc between ch-space mid front and mid back (= 234-250-266 dc in total on round + 2 ch-space). Cut the yarn. NOTE: Then do not inc on each shoulder but only mid front and mid back on poncho.

Work 1 sl st in 10th st from ch-space mid back and work pattern as follows: Work A.1a (shows how round beg and end, does not replace first st), A.2a (= 8 dc) 13-14-15 times in width, A.3a (= inc mid front), continue with A.2a 14-15-16 times in width, A.3a (= inc mid back) and A.2a 1 time in all sizes. On 4th round in A.3a there are 133-141-149 dc between ch-space mid front and mid back. Continue with pattern as before (there is now room for 16-17-18 repetitions A.2a on each side of A.3a). On 10th round inc 8 dc evenly on each side of A.3a (= 16 dc in total on round) = 163-171-179 dc on each side of ch-space mid front and mid back. Continue with pattern as before, but now work A.1b over A.1a, A.2b over A.2a and A.3b over A.3a (there is now room for 19-20-21 repetitions A.2 on each side of A.3). On 4th round inc 3 dc evenly between every repetitions of A.3 (i.e. 6 dc in total on round) = 169-177-185 dc between each ch-space mid front and mid back. Continue pattern (there is now room for 21-22-23 repetitions A.2 on each side of A.3). When entire diagram has been worked vertically, piece measures 36-37-38 cm / 14 1/4"-14½"-15". Cut the yarn.

Now work mesh pattern as at beg of piece. Beg in ch-space mid back, and work mesh pattern from 3rd round in mesh pattern. Repeat 2nd and 3rd round until 6-8-10 rounds in total have been worked (includes last round in A.2 and A.3).
Work next round as follows: * Work (2 dc, ch 3, 2 dc) around ch-space (= mid back), then work 1 dc in every dc and 1 dc around every ch until next rep of A.5 *, repeat from *-* 1 more time = 193-209-225 dc between ch-space mid front and mid back. Cut the yarn.

Now work pattern A.1a, A.2a and A.3a as follows:
Work 1 sl st in 12th dc from ch-space mid back and work pattern as follows: Work A.1a (shows how round beg and end, does not replace first st), A.2a until 2 dc remain before ch-space mid front, A.3a (= inc mid front), continue with A.2a until 2 dc remain before ch-space mid back, A.3a (= inc mid back) and A.2a 1 time in all sizes. When 4th row has been worked vertically, poncho measures 49-52-54 cm / 19 1/4"-20½"-21 1/4". Fasten off.
