Description

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Lion Brand® Homespun®: Mixed Berries 2 skeins, or color of choice
  • Lion Brand® crochet hook size K-10.5 (6.5 mm)
  • Lion Brand® large-eyed blunt needle
  • Tape Measure
  • Scissors

    • SIZE:
    • Finished Circumference at Neck About 23" (58.5 cm)
    • Finished Circumference at Lower Edge About 56" (142 cm)
    • Finished Length About 22-1/2" (57 cm)

    • GAUGE:
    • 1 ripple at lower edge (with 7 sts between peaks and valleys) = about 7" (18 cm). Note: Measured from peak to peak.
    • 2 ripples at neck edge (with 2 sts between peaks and valleys) = about 5-3/4" (14.5 cm).
    • 4 rnds = about 3-3/4" (9.5 cm)
    • BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

    • NOTES:
    • Poncho is worked in joined rnds beg at lower edge. Turn at beg of each rnd.
    • Poncho is worked in a ripple crochet pattern. The ripple pattern consists of alternating 3-st “peaks” and skipped st “valleys”. Take care to keep the peaks and valleys of each rnd aligned. 3 sts are worked into the center st of peaks and sts are skipped over valleys. In Rnd 1 only 1 ch is skipped at a valley, so that there are no "holes" in the tips of the lower edge of Poncho. In all other rnds 2 sts are skipped at each valley.
    • Sts are decreased from lower edge up to neck edge. The total number of sts in a rnd is decreased by decreasing the number of sts between peaks and valleys.

    • DIRECTIONS:

    • Loosely ch 128. Being careful not to twist ch; join with a sl st in first ch to form a ring.
    • Rnd 1 (RS): Ch 1, 2 sc in same ch as joining, *sc in next 7 ch, sk next ch (valley made), sc in next 7 ch, 3 sc in next ch (peak made); rep from * to last 15 ch, sc in next 7 ch, sk next ch, sc in next 7 ch, sc again in same ch as joining; join with sl st in first sc – 136 sc (8 ripples with 7 sts between peaks and valleys).
    • Rnds 2-4: Ch 3 (counts as first dc in this rnd and in all following rnds), turn, dc in same st as joining, *dc in next 7 sts, sk next 2 sts, dc in next 7 sts, 3 dc in next st; rep from * to last 16 sts, dc in next 7 sts, sk next 2 sts, dc in next 7 sts, dc again in same st as joining; join with sl st in top of beg ch.
    • Rnd 5 (Decrease Rnd): Ch 3, turn, dc in same st as joining, *sk next st, dc in next 6 sts, sk next 2 sts, dc in next 6 sts, sk next st, 3 dc in next st; rep from * to last 16 sts, sk next st, dc in next 6 sts, sk next 2 sts, dc in next 6 sts, sk next st, dc again in same st as joining; join with sl st in top of beg ch – 120 dc (8 ripples with 6 sts between peaks and valleys).

    • Rnd 9 (Decrease Rnd): Ch 3, turn, dc in same st as joining, *sk next st, dc in next 5 sts, sk next 2 sts, dc in next 5 sts, sk next st, 3 dc in next st; rep from * to last 14 sts, sk next st, dc in next 5 sts, sk next 2 sts, dc in next 5 sts, sk next st, dc again in same st as joining; join with sl st in top of beg ch – 104 dc (8 ripples with 5 sts between peaks and valleys).
    • Rnds 10-12: Ch 3, turn, dc in same st as joining, *dc in next 5 sts, sk next 2 sts, dc in next 5 sts, 3 dc in next st; rep from * to last 12 sts, dc in next 5 sts, sk next 2 sts, dc in next 5 sts, dc again in same st as joining; join with sl st in top of beg ch.
    • Rnd 13 (Decrease Rnd): Ch 3, turn, dc in same st as joining, *sk next st, dc in next 4 sts, sk next 2 sts, dc in next 4 sts, sk next st, 3 dc in next st; rep from * to last 12 sts, sk next st, dc in next 4 sts, sk next 2 sts, dc in next 4 sts, sk next st, dc again in same st as joining; join with sl st in top of beg ch – 88 dc (8 ripples with 4 sts between peaks and valleys).
    • Rnd 14: Ch 3, turn, dc in same st as joining, *dc in next 4 sts, sk next 2 sts, dc in next 4 sts, 3 dc in next st; rep from * to last 10 sts, dc in next 4 sts, sk next 2 sts, dc in next 4 sts, dc again in same st as joining; join with sl st in top of beg ch.
    • Rnd 15 (Decrease Rnd): Ch 3, turn, dc in same st as joining, *sk next st, dc in next 3 sts, sk next 2 sts, dc in next 3 sts, sk next st, 3 dc in next st; rep from * to last 10 sts, sk next st, dc in next 3 sts, sk next 2 sts, dc in next 3 sts, sk next st, dc again in same st as joining; join with sl st in top of beg ch – 72 dc (8 ripples with 3 sts between peaks and valleys).
    • Rnds 16-18: Ch 3, turn, dc in same st as joining, *dc in next 3 sts, sk next 2 sts, dc in next 3 sts, 3 dc in next st; rep from * to last 8 sts, dc in next 3 sts, sk next 2 sts, dc in next 3 sts, dc again in same st as joining; join with sl st in top of beg ch.
