PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. A.1 shows entire square on 1st-4th round, then 1 side and 2 corners on square.

CROCHET INFO:
Replace first dc on every round with 3 ch. Finish round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round.
----------------------------------------------------------

PONCHO:
Work 4 large squares as explained below. Then work squares tog into a poncho. Finish by working a neck edge and a border along bottom edge before fastening fringes at the bottom around the entire poncho. Work entire poncho with 2 strands.

Work A.1 as follows:
Work 4 ch on hook size 8 mm / L/11 with 2 strands Belle and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 1: ch 1, 8 sc in ch-ring, finish with 1 sl st in first sc.
ROUND 2: Work 6 ch (= 1 dc + 3 ch) - READ CROCHET INFO, * 1 dc in next sc, 3 ch *, repeat from *-* a total of 7 times and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 8 dc with 3 ch between each.
ROUND 3: ch 1, then work as follows in every ch-space: 1 sc, 1 hdc, 3 dc, 1 hdc and 1 sc, finish round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round = 8 leaves. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
ROUND 4: Work ch 7, * 1 sc between the next 2 leaves, 6 ch *, repeat from *-* a total of 7 times, finish round with 1 sl st in 1st ch from beg of round = 8 ch-spaces.
ROUND 5: ch 1, then work as follows in every ch-space: 1 sc, 1 hdc, 5 dc, 1 hdc and 1 sc, finish round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round = 8 leaves.
ROUND 6: Work 10 ch, * 1 sc between the next 2 leaves, 9 ch *, repeat from *-* a total of 7 times, finish round with 1 sl st in 1st ch from beg of round = 8 ch-spaces.
ROUND 7: ch 1, then work as follows in every ch-space: 1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc, 5 tr, 1 dc, 1 hdc and 1 sc, finish round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round = 8 leaves.
ROUND 8: Work sl sts until first tr on first leaf, 3 ch (= 1 dc), * 8 ch (= corner), skip 3 tr, 1 sc in last tr on same leaf, ch 5, 1 sc in first tr on next leaf, ch 5, skip 3 tr, 1 sc in last tr on same leaf, ch 5, 1 dc in first tr on next leaf *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times but finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round (instead of 1 dc in 1st tr on next leaf).
ROUND 9: 1 sl st in 8-ch-space, * 4 dc + 4 ch + 4 dc in ch-space in the corner, (4 ch, 1 dc in next ch-space), repeat from (-) a total of 3 times, 4 ch *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times, finish with 1 sl st in first dc (= 3rd ch) from beg of round.
ROUND 10: * 1 dc in each of the first 4 dc, in ch-space in the corner work 3 dc + 2 ch + 3 dc, 1 dc in each of the next 4 dc, 4 dc in each of the next 4 ch-spaces *, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times, finish round with 1 sl st in first dc (= 3rd ch) from beg of round. There are now 30 dc along each side and 2 ch in every corner. Work sl sts until ch in first corner.

Then work according to A.2 along the sides on square, around ch in corners work 3 dc + 2 ch + 3 dc. Continue according to A.2 until square measures approx. 38 x 38 cm / 15" x 15" - adjust after round with dc. NOTE: If you want a bigger poncho continue according to A.2 until desired measurements. Fasten off.

ASSEMBLY:
Place squares as shown in chart. Beg in the bottom edge, up to neck and down on opposite side of middle square as follows: Place 2 squares on top of each other WS against WS, and crochet them tog with 2 strands as follows: ** Work 1 sc around ch-space in corner on 1st square, ch 1, 1 sc around ch-space in corner on 2nd square, * ch 3, 1 sc between 2 dc-groups on 1st square, ch 1, 1 sc between 2 dc-groups on 2nd square *, repeat from *-* until next corner, finish with 3 ch for transition to next square **, repeat from **-** down along other side of middle square and next square. Cut the yarn and work the same way on opposite side of poncho.

NECK EDGE:
Work a finishing edge on 2 rows around the neck on hook size 8 mm / L/11 as follows: Continue working according to A.2 - remember CROCHET INFO. - but adjust in the corner mid front and mid back so that neck edge lies nicely. Fasten off.

EDGE AROUND THE BOTTOM OF PONCHO:
Work a finishing edge on 2 rows at the bottom around the poncho on hook size 8 mm / L/11 with 2 strands as follows: Continue working according to diagram A.2. 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 + 2 ch + 3 dc on every round.
When edge is done, fasten off.


FRINGES:
1 fringe = 6 threads of approx. 40 cm / 15 3/4''. Fold the threads double, thread the space 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.
