Martha Stewart 'Coming Home' Poncho

Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

7 dc + 4 rows = 4" [10 cm] in pattern.
8 rows sc = 4" [10 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.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS PATTERN

  1. Q: In Rnd 3, where it says “Slip st in first space (working around post of last sc made) inches, what’s the post?
    A: sc was worked to create the last "space" of the each round. Work around the body of the sc (instead of in the top 2 loops) as if it were a ch-1 space.
  2. Q: Where is the other corner?
    A: There are 2 "corners" made in each rnd. One is at the center front and one at the center back of the poncho. The one corner is (3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc) halfway through the rnd. The other corner is worked in 2 pieces. You do half of the first corner at the beginning of the rnd (ch 3, 2 dc in same space), then finish it at the end of the rnd (3 dc in same space as beg, sc in 3rd ch of turning ch to join). This produces a complete "corner".
  3. Q: In the Edging instructions, Rnd 2 reads: “Slip st in first space, (ch 3, dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in same space, *ch 3, skip next sc, sc in next 3 sc, ch 3, (Shell, ch 1, Shell) in next ch1-space; repeat from * 18 more times, ch 3, skip next sc, sc in next 3 sc, ch 3, Shell in same space as beg; join with sc in top of beg ch – 40 Shells. inches but there is no sc in the previous rnd.
    A: There are 5 sc between the shells in Rnd 1 of the Edging. See the underlined phrases:
    Rnd 1 Sl st in first space, ch 3, dc in same space, * ch 3, skip next 2 dc, sc in next 5 dc, ch 3, skip next 2 dc, shell between next 2 blocks; rep from * 18 times, ch 3, skip next 2 dc, sc in next 5 dc, ch 3, skip next 2 dc, 2 dc in same space as beg, sc in 3rd ch of turning ch to join – 20 shells.
  4. Q: In the Edging, Round 1, what is a shell?
    A: Please see the Stitch Explanations section at the beginning of the pattern, where the definition is "Shell (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in same space."
  5. Q: In the Edging instructions, Rnd 2 asks you to work into the next ch 1 space but there is no ch 1 space in the previous rnd.
    A: The ch 1 space is part of the shells worked in Rnd 1.

Reviewed by Totatzi Lopez on 2013-12-30 ****
Very nice and easy pattern. I took off a star because I couldn't figure out the edging, so instead I did a couple of rows of single crochet to give a nice clean edge. The poncho looks amazing ! I agree that this yarn is annoying to work with for the first couple of rows, but the end product is so so worth it, the poncho is plush and warm and looks very chic. I finished it in 3 sittings, probably total 6 hours, while watching tv.
