PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.5. NOTE: A.4 and A.5 are illustrations and show on which side the crochet squares are worked onwards.
----------------------------------------------------------

PONCHO:
First work 4 crochet squares, then sew crochet squares together before working an edge in the neck and an edge at the bottom of poncho.

CROCHET SQUARE 1 (= mid front and mid back):
Begin with hook size 3.5 mm/E/4 and light wash and work pattern according to diagram A.1b 4 times in total on round - diagram A.1a shows how rounds begin and end and worked in addition to A.1b. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
On 9th round work with light blue. From 10th round continue with light wash. When entire diagram A.1a and A.1b have been worked vertically, crochet square measures approx. 24 x 24 cm / 9½" x 9½''. Cut the yarn.
Now continue as follows:
Begin with light wash in 4th single crochet and work from 3rd round in diagrams as follows (1st and 2nd round are already worked): Work A.2a in single crochet (A.2a shows how rounds begin and end), work A.2b over the first 3 chain spaces, * work A.2c (= corner), work A.2b over the next 9 chain spaces (= 3 repetitions) *, repeat from *-* 2 more times, work A.2c in the corner and finish with A.2b over the remaining 6 chain spaces (= 2 repetitions) on round. When 6th round in diagram A.2a to A.2c has been worked, fasten off. Crochet square measures approx. 37 x 37 cm / 14½" x 14½".

Switch to light blue and continue over 2 of the sides on crochet squares - see illustration A.4 and sides marked with A:
Fasten strand with 1 single crochet around chain space in a corner, work 3 chain stitches and 5 double crochet around chain space in the corner, then work last row in A.2b until 2 chain spaces remain before corner, work last round in A.2c, continue with last round in A.2b until next corner, work 5 double crochet around chain space in the corner. Size S/M is now done.
In size L/XL and XXL/XXXL continue as follows:

Size L/XL:
Turn piece and work 2nd row in diagrams as follows: Work A.3a, then work A.3b until next corner, work A.3c around chain space in corner. Turn and work last row in diagram A.3a to A.3c. Cut the yarn. Work the same way on the other side marked with A – see illustration A.4. Size L/XL is now done. (L/XL has 2 rows more than S/M).

Size XXL/XXXL
Turn piece and work from 2nd row in diagrams as follows: Work A.3a, then work A.3b until next corner, work A.3c around chain space in corner. Turn and work last row in diagram A.3a to A.3c. Work 2nd and 3rd row in diagram A.3a to A.3c 1 more time vertically. Cut the yarn. Work the same way on the other side marked with A – see illustration A.4. Size XXL/XXXL is now done. (XXL/XXXL has 4 rows more than S/M).

ALL SIZES: Work 1 more square the same way = 2 equal crochet squares, one for mid front and one for mid back on poncho.

CROCHET SQUARE 2 (= sides):
Begin with hook size 3.5 mm/E/4 and light wash and work a crochet square the same way as crochet square 1, but when 6th round (= next to last round) in diagram A.2a to A.2c is done, fasten off. Switch to light blue and continue over 3 of the sides on crochet squares - see illustration A.5 and sides marked with B and C as follows: Fasten strand with 1 single crochet around chain space in a corner, work 3 chain stitches and 5 double crochet around chain space in the corner, then work last row in A.2b until 2 chain spaces remain before next corner, * work last row in A.2c, continue with last row in A.2b until next corner *, repeat from *-* 1 more time, work 5 double crochet around chain space in the corner. Fasten off.

Work 1 more crochet square the same way = 2 equal crochet squares for sides on poncho.

ASSEMBLY:
Place crochet squares together so that sides A meet sides B and sides C are inwards towards neck on poncho – see measurements chart! Sew crochet squares together edge to edge, i.e. sew in outer loops of edge stitches to avoid a chunky seam. Fasten off.

EDGE AT THE BOTTOM:
Work an edge at the bottom of poncho with light blue as follows:
Begin in the tip on crochet square mid back, i.e. in corner pointing down on poncho and fasten strand with 1 single crochet around chain space, work 3 chain stitches and 5 double crochet around the same chain space, * work 5 double crochet around each of the next 13 chain spaces, work 4 double crochet around next chain space (= corner on crochet square), work 2-9-17 double crochet around stitch along edge in section between crochet squares worked with light blue, work 4 double crochet around chain space (= corner on next crochet square), continue with 5 double crochet around next 13 chain spaces, work 4 double crochet around next chain space (= corner on crochet square), work 2-10-17 double crochet around stitch along edge in section between crochet squares work with light blue, work 4 double crochet around next chain space (= corner on crochet square), continue with 5 double crochet around each of the next chain spaces, work (5 double crochet , 3 chain stitches, 5 double crochet ) around corner (= tip mid front) *, repeat from *-* 1 more time but finish with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning of round, after (5 double crochet and 3 chain stitches) in tip mid back = 225-240-255 double crochet on each side of chain spaces in tips mid front and mid back.
Now work pattern from 2nd round in diagrams as follows: Work 1 chain stitch (= replaces first single crochet in A.2a), * work A.2b 15-16-17 times in width, work A.2c around chain space in tip mid front *, repeat from *-* 1 more time. Continue like this in the round until diagrams A.2a to A.2c have been worked vertically. Fasten off.

NECK EDGE:
Work edge with light blue.
ROUND 1: Begin somewhere along side C, fasten strand with a single crochet in space between 2 groups with double crochet (1 group = 5 double crochet worked around same chain space). Work * 5 chain stitches, skip approx. 2 cm / 3/4'', 1 single crochet around space between the next 2 double crochet *, repeat from *-* around the entire neck. NOTE: Adjust to work 1 single crochet in tip mid front and mid back. Finish with 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch at beginning of round.
ROUND 2:
Work 3 chain stitches, * work 5 double crochet around first/next chain space *, repeat from *-* the entire round but in chain space on each side of tip mid front and mid back work 3 double crochet around chain spaces. Finish round with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch from beginning of round. Fasten off.

TWINED STRING:
Cut 4 lengths of 2.5 metres/2 3/4 yds each with light wash. Twine the strands tog until they resist, fold the string double so that it twines again. Make a knot at each end. Thread string up and down in chain spaces, i.e. in 1st round in neck edge and tie a knot mid front on poncho.

Found it! Thank you for your patience with my questions and for your timely replies. I'm looking forward to more purchases with your company. This has been a very positive experience.

Lorry 11.08.2018 - 16:35:

I am trying to find A.1a which I believe does not appear on your patter. I’m writing again because I have looked again right below the symbols as you answered and all I see is A.1b and to the right of that is A.2c but not A.1a. I would be most appreciative if you would reply again after double checking this. Thank you.

DROPS Design 12.08.2018 kl. 17:11:

Dear Lorry, diagram A.1a is next to the circle in which A.1b is written, and it shows only how to start and finish the rounds. Look in the top right next to A.1b and you'll find A.1a. Happy crafting!

Lorry Ciporkin 10.08.2018 - 21:12:

Pattern refers to diagram A.1.a but I’m unable to identify which that is on pattern. The other references are all there but not this one. \r\n\r\nThank you.

Dear Lorry, diagram A.1 is at the bottom of the pattern, just below the diagram symbols. Happy crafting!

Leah 03.08.2018 - 13:35:

Are you able to provide measurements to consider which size to make?

DROPS Design 03.08.2018 kl. 15:21:

Dear Leah, you will find all finished measurements in the chart at the bottom of the pattern. Compare these to a similar garment you have and like the shape to find out the matching size - measurements are taken flat from side to side - and in cm. Happy crocheting!

Synes det er træls at opskriften kun er i forvirret diagram. Så jeg må droppe den.....
