NOTES:

Poncho is worked in 2 pieces, Front and Back.
Front and Back are sewn together then stitches are picked up around neck for turtleneck and around lower edge for ribbing.
When you see ‘– 12 sts’ in the instructions, this lets you know how many sts you will have at the end of that specific row.
To change color, work last st of old color to last yearn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete the stitch. Fasten off old color.

DIRECTIONS:

BACK
With B, ch 150.
Row 1 (RS): Dc in 4th ch from hook (beg ch counts as first dc) and in each ch across – 148 dc. Note: Place a marker to identify this as the right side.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, working in front loop only, sl st in each st across.
Row 3: Ch 3 (beg ch counts as a dc on this row and on all the rows of this pattern), turn, working in back loop only, dc in each sl st across.
Rep Rows 2-3 until piece measures about 4" (10 cm) from beg, end with a Row 2 (WS row) as the last row you work.
Change to C and rep Rows 2-3 until piece measures about 6" (15 cm) from beg, end with a WS row as the last row you work.
Change to A and rep Rows 2-3 until piece measures about 11" (28 cm) from beg, end with a WS row as the last row you work.
Place a marker on each side of the last row to indicate beg of armhole.
Next Row: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), turn, working through both loops, dc in next st and in each st across – 148 dc.
