Piece is worked as 2 scarves and then sewn together into a poncho.

Work 63-75-87-99 chain stitches on hook size 5 mm with Paris. Work 1 double crochet in 2nd chain stitch from hook (= 2 double crochet), 1 double crochet in next chain stitch, * skip 1 chain stitch, 1 double crochet in each of the next 3 chain stitches *, repeat from *-* the entire row = 48-57-66-75 double crochet. Then work as follows - begin on 2nd row in diagram (= right side): Work A.1A (= 1 stitch), A.2 over the next 5 double crochet, A.3 over the next 36-45-54-63 double crochet (4-5-6-7 repetitions of 9 stitches), A.4 over the next 5 double crochet and then A.1B (= 1 stitch). Continue pattern back and forth as shown in diagrams. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! When A.1 to A.4 has been worked 1 time vertically, repeat the last 4 rows in diagrams until piece measures approx. 68-75-83-90 cm. Fasten off. Work another part the same way.

Place cast-off edge on 2nd part towards right long side on 1st part (seen from right side) - from the corner and 38-45-53-60 cm upwards – make sure not to stretch the piece too much. Sew the 2 parts together with neat little stitches - this is the front on poncho. Then sew cast-on edge on 1st part to right side on 2nd part the same way. NOTE: You can also crochet the parts together as follows: 1 double crochet in first stitch on 2nd part, 1 double crochet in first stitch on 1st part, * 2 chain stitchs, skip approx. 1 cm, 1 double crochet in next stitch on 2nd part, 1 chain stitch, 1 double crochet in next stitch on 2nd part *, repeat from *-* along the entire edge. Fasten off.
