START THE PIECE HERE:

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

PONCHO - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
4 crochet squares are worked and sewn together: 2 single-colored squares and 2 striped squares. An edge is worked at the bottom of the poncho and a neck at the top.

CROCHET SQUARE:
Work 4 chain stitches with hook size 5.5 mm = US I/9 and medium grey. Form them into a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch. Work STRIPES-1- read description above and pattern in the round as follows: Work A.1a – start at arrow - (shows how the rounds start and finish), A.1b a total of 4 times on the round. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE! When the crochet square has been completed, it measures approx. 40 x 40 cm = 15 3/4” x 15 3/4”. Size S/M is now finished. For sizes L/XL and XXL/XXXL continue as follows: Work A.2a (shows how the rounds start and finish), * A.2b until there is 1 chain stitch left before the corner. A.2c (= corner) *, work from *-* a total of 4 times on the round, then work A.2b to the end of the round. When you have worked 1 round, size L/XL is finished and the square measures approx. 44 x 44 cm = 17 1/4” x 17 1/4”. For size XXL/XXXL work the last round in the diagrams. When the last round has been worked the square measures approx. 48 x 48 cm ? 19” x 19”.

Work 1 more square in the same way = 2 crochet squares.
Now work 2 single-colored squares in the same way using medium grey. You have now worked a total of 4 crochet squares.

ASSEMBLY:
Lay the crochet squares out as shown in the illustration – see below beside the diagrams and sketch.
1 = crochet square with stripes; 2 = single-colored square.
Work the squares together through both layers from the wrong side as follows: 1 single crochet around chain-space in corner, * work 3 chain stitches, skip 3 double crochets, 1 single crochet around the next chain stitch *, work from *-* along the whole side and finish with 1 single crochet in the next corner. Work the other squares together in the same way. Then finally work together the side marked with a star in the illustration.

BOTTOM EDGE:
Now work the bottom edge as follows:
Start with medium grey in the transition between a single-colored and a striped square – see black spot on sketch, work STRIPES-2 and pattern in the round as follows: Work A.3a (shows how the rounds start and finish), work A.3b as far as the corner mid front, A.3c around the chain-space in the corner, work A.3b as far as the next corner mid back, A.3c and A.3b to the start of the round. Continue in the round like this until A.3a - A.3c have been completed in height. Cut and fasten the strand.

NECK:
The whole neck is worked with medium grey.
Start with medium grey in the chain-space in the corner of the middle crochet square (= mid back), work A.3a (shows how the rounds start and finish), work A.3b around the same chain-space in the corner, * skip the chain-space in the corner of the next square, work A.3b as far as the next corner, skip the chain-space in the corner, work A.3b around the chain-space in the crochet square mid front *, work from *-* 1 more time on the round, but finish as shown in A.3a. When A.3a and A.3c have been completed in height, repeat the last 4 rounds 2 more times (= a total of 3 times in height). Cut and fasten the strand.
Make a twisted cord as follows:

TWISTED CORD AND TASSELS
Cut 4 strands dark grey, 5 metres = 200” in length. Twist them together until they begin to resist, fold them double and they will continue to twist. Tie a knot in each end so that the cord stays twisted. Thread the cord up and down through Round 3 on the neck; start and finish mid front.
Make 1 tassel in each end of the cord:
1 tassel = Cut 11 strands dark grey, 24 cm = 9 1/2” in length. Thread them through the end of the cord and fold them so that all the ends are together (= 24 strand-ends). Cut one more strand, 20 cm = 8” in length and wind it around the strands, approx. 1 cm = 3/8” down from the fold and tie a knot. Trim the strands so that they are even at the bottom. Make 1 more tassel in the same way for the other end of the cord.

Jakim kolorem łączyć kwadraty?

DROPS Design 11.11.2018 kl. 22:46:

Witaj Mirko! Należy połączyć kwadraty kolorem ostatniego okrążenia kwadratu, a jeżeli obok siebie są różne kolorystycznie kwadraty, wybierz kolor wykończenia zgodnie ze swoim gustem. Powodzenia!
