GAUGE:
1 ripple = about 3 in. (7.5 cm). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
dc2tog (dc 2 sts together) Yarn over, insert hook into st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops.

Yarn over, insert hook into next st and draw up a loop.

Yarn over, draw through 2 loops, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook - 1 dc st decreased.

sc2tog (sc 2 sts together) Insert hook into st and draw up a loop.

Insert hook into next st and draw up a loop.

Yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook - 1 sc st decreased.

NOTES:
1.

Poncho is worked in one piece from one side across to opposite side.

Once the first side has been worked, the piece is then divided for neck and front and back are worked separately.

When the neck has been completed, the front and back are rejoined and the 2nd side of Poncho is then worked.

2.

This project is worked in a ripple crochet pattern.

The ripple pattern is easy to do, but it's important to remember that you may need to work several rows before the ripple pattern becomes clear.

3.

To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over.

Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete st.

Fasten off old color.

4.

Work over yarn ends of old color or weave in ends as you go.
