EXPLANATIONS FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.7.

CROCHET TIP (for chain stitches):
It is often found that we work our chain stitches more tightly than other stitches. 1 chain stitch should equal 1 double crochet/double treble crochet/triple treble crochet etc. on width. Make sure the loop of the chain stitch is pulled up the hook so that it is loose. If the chain stitches are too tight, the sections with lots of chain stitches will also be too tight.

CROCHET INFORMATION:
At the beginning of each row of treble crochets replace the first treble crochet with 3 chain stitches.
At the beginning of each row of triple treble crochets replace the first triple treble crochet with 5 chain stitches.

INCREASE TIP:
Increase 1 treble crochet by working 2 treble crochets in same stitch.

DECREASE TIP:
Decrease 1 treble crochet by working 2 treble crochets together as follows: Work 1 treble crochet but wait with the last yarn over and pull through (= 2 loops on hook), then work the next treble crochet; when working the last pull through, pull the strand through all 3 loops on hook (= 1 treble crochet decreased).

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

PONCHO - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
The piece is worked back and forth in sections, top down. Read CROCHET TIP. The back piece starts with right and left shoulder, which are then worked together before continuing. The front piece is first worked in separate right and left front pieces, before these 2 sections are worked together and then continued in the same way as the back piece.

BACK PIECE:
Right shoulder:
Work 68-79-86 chain stitches with hook size 3.5 mm and Cotton Light – read CROCHET INFORMATION. Turn and work treble crochets as follows:
ROW 1 (= wrong side): Work 1 treble crochet in 4th chain stitch from hook (= 2 treble crochets), work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 3-2-3 chain stitches, * skip 1 chain stitch, work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 5 chain stitches *, work from *-* a total of 10-12-13 times = 55-64-70 treble crochets. Cut strand and lay piece to one side.
Left shoulder:
Work 68-79-86 chain stitches with hook size 3.5 mm and Cotton Light. Turn and work treble crochets as follows:
ROW 1 (= wrong side): Work 1 treble crochet in 4th chain stitch from hook (= 2 treble crochets), work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 3-2-3 chain stitches, * skip 1 chain stitch, work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 5 chain stitches *, work from *-* a total of 10-12-13 times = 55-64-70 treble crochets.
ROW 2 (= right side): Work A.1a (= 7 stitches), A.1b (= 3 stitches) over the remaining 48-57-63 treble crochets on left shoulder, work 29-29-32 loose chain stitches at end of row (= neck) and then continue the pattern over the right shoulder as follows: A.1d (= 1 stitch), A.1b (= 3 stitches) over the next 48-57-63 treble crochets (= until there are 6 stitches left on row) and finish with A.1c (= 6 stitches).
Now right and left shoulders have been worked together and there are 29-29-32 chain stitches for neck. Work the last row in the diagram as follows:
ROW 3: A.1c, A.1b over the next 16-19-21 chain-spaces, A.1d, work 1 treble crochet in each of the 29-29-32 chain stitches, continue with A.1b over the next 16-19-21 chain-spaces and finish with A.1a = 139-157-172 stitches. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
Now work pattern as follows: A.2a (= 7 stitches), A.2b (= 42-48-53 repeats of 3 stitches) until there are 6 stitches left on row, A.2c (= 6 stitches). When A.2a-A.2c have been completed in height, work pattern as follows: A.3a (= 4 stitches), A.3b (= 3 stitches), work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 9-18-7 stitches, A.3c (= 18 stitches) a total of 6-6-8 times, work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 9-18-8 treble crochets, A.3d (= 3 stitches), A.3e (= 3 stitches). When A.3a-A.3e have been completed in height work patterns A.2a-A.2c in the same way as earlier, but on the last row in the diagrams increase 3-3-0 treble crochets evenly spaced (increase over stitches in A.2b)– read INCREASE TIP = 142-160-172 stitches. The piece now measures approx. 22 cm.
Now work pattern as follows: Work A.3a over the first 4 stitches, A.3b over the next 3-12-18 stitches (= 1-4-6 repeats), A.4 (= 42 stitches) a total of 3 times, A.3d over the next 6-15-21 stitches (= 2-5-7 repeats) and finish with A.3e over the last 3 stitches. Work the row with a white star at the beginning of the diagram a total of 3-4-5 times in height before continuing and work the next-to-last row in the diagram (with white star) a total of 2-3-4 times. On the last row decrease 3-3-0 treble crochets evenly spaced – read DECREASE TIP = 139-157-172 stitches. When A.4 has been completed the piece measures approx. 44-46-48 cm.
Work A.2a-A.2c in the same way as earlier, but on the last row increase 0-3-0 treble crochets evenly spaced = 139-160-172 stitches.
Work pattern as follows: A.3a over the first 4 stitches, A.3b over the next 3-3-9 stitches (= 1-1-3 repeats), A.5 (= 21 stitches) a total of 6-7-7 times, A.3d over the next 3-3-9 stitches (= 1-1-3 repeats) and A.3e over the last 3 stitches.
Repeat the row with the white star at the beginning of the diagram a total of 1-2-3 times in height before continuing and then repeat the next-to-last row in the diagram (with white star) a total of 1-2-3 times. On the last row decrease 0-3-0 treble crochets evenly spaced = 139-157-172 stitches.
Now work A.2a-A.2c in the same way as earlier. The piece measures approx. 69-73-77 cm from the shoulder down.
Cut and fasten strand.

FRONT PIECE:
Right front piece:
Work 68-79-86 chain stitches with hook size 3.5 mm and Cotton Light. Turn and work treble crochets as follows:
ROW 1 (= wrong side): Work 1 treble crochet in the 4th chain stitch from hook (= 2 treble crochets), work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 3-2-3 chain stitches, * skip 1 chain stitch, work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 5 chain stitches *, work from *-* a total of 10-12-13 times = 55-64-70 treble crochets.
Now work pattern as follows from the right side: A.7a (= 7 stitches), A.7b (= 15-18-20 repeats of 3 stitches) until there are 3 stitches left on row, A.7c (= 3 treble crochets). Continue back and forth like this until the 4th row has been worked (with black square). Cut the strand.
ROW 5: Work 12-12-15 loose chain stitches and then continue as shown on row with arrow in diagrams A.7c, A.7b and A.7a = 70-79-88 stitches on row.
Continue A.7a-A.7c as before and work 1 treble crochet in each of the 12-12-15 stitches cast on for neck. When A.7a-A.7c have been completed in height continue as follows: A.3a over the first 4 stitches, A.3b over the next 3 stitches, 1 treble crochet in each of the next 9-18-9 treble crochets and A.3c a total of 3-3-4 times in width. When A.3 has been completed in height continue as follows from the right side: Work A.2a over the first 7 stitches and A.2b a total of 21-24-27 times. Continue back and forth like this until there is 1 row left in the diagrams. Cut the strand, lay the piece to one side and work left front piece.
Left front piece:
Work 68-79-86 chain stitches with hook size 3.5 mm and Cotton Light. Turn and work treble crochets as follows:
ROW 1 (= wrong side): Work 1 treble crochet in 4th chain stitch from hook (= 2 treble crochets) work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 3-2-3 chain stitches, * skip 1 chain stitch, work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 5 chain stitches *, work from *-* a total of 10-12-13 times = 55-64-70 treble crochets.
Now work pattern as follows from the right side: Work A.6a (= 1 stitch), A.6b (= 16-19-21 repeats of 3 stitches) until there are 6 stitches left on row and A.6c (= 6 stitches). Continue back and forth like this until row 5 has been worked. At the end of row 5 work 12-12-15 loose chain stitches for neck.
ROW 6: Work 3 chain stitches, 1 treble crochet in 4th chain stitch from hook (= 2 treble crochets), work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 10-10-13 loose chain stitches (= 12-12-15 treble crochets over neck), then A.6a-A.6c as before = 70-79-88 stitches.

On the last row decrease 3-3-0 treble crochets evenly spaced – remember DECREASE TIP = 139-157-172 stitches. When A.4 has been completed the piece measures approx. 44-46-48 cm.
Work A.2a-A.2c in the same way as earlier, but on the last row increase 0-3-0 treble crochets evenly spaced = 139-160-172 stitches.
Work pattern as follows: A.3a over the first 4 stitches, A.3b over the next 3-3-9 stitches (= 1-1-3 repeats), A.5 (= 21 stitches) a total of 6-7-7 times, A.3d over the next 3-3-9 stitches (= 1-1-3 repeats) and A.3e over the last 3 stitches.

Now work A.2a-A.2c in the same way as earlier. The piece measures approx. 69-73-77 cm from the shoulder down.
Cut and fasten strand.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams in each and every stitch so that the seam shows as little as possible. Sew a button onto each side of the front piece: Sew the buttons inside the 2 treble crochets on middle row of A.4 (i.e., on the row where the flower is widest). Work a loop for the button on each side of the back piece as follows: Fasten strand with 1 slip stitch on the middle row of A.4 (same row the buttons were fastened to), work 8 chain stitches and finish with 1 slip stitch in edge. Cut and fasten strand.

NECK EDGE AND SPLIT IN FRONT:
Fasten strand with 1 double crochet at bottom of split mid front and work * 3 chain stitches, skip approx. 1 cm, 1 double crochet *, work from *-* up to neck edge, work 1 extra chain-space in corner and continue with chain-spaces around the neck, work 1 extra chain-space in corner on the other side of neck, mid front and work down the split to beginning of round. Finish with 1 slip stitch in first double crochet worked. Cut and fasten strand.

TWISTED CORD:
Cut 4 strands each 1.5 metres in length. Twist them together until they begin to resist, fold the cord double and it will continue to twist. Tie a knit in each end of the cord and make 1 more cord in the same way. Thread each cord through the crochet-edge on the corner of the neck on each side.
