Poncho with squares in ”Safran”
Yarn group ASize: S/M - L/XL - XXL/XXXL
CROCHET HOOK SIZE 4 mm – or size needed to get 1 square = approx. 8.5 x 8.5 cm.
Work 3 ch, work 1 tr – but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), work 1 tr the same way in the same st, pull thread through all 3 sts on hook = 1st bobble on round.
Work 1 tr – but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), work 2 tr the same way in the same st, pull thread through all 4 sts on hook.
The poncho is worked in two parts and sew tog when finished.
Crochet 5 ch on hook size 4 mm with Safran and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 1: 1 ch, 12 dc in ch-ring.
ROUND 2: * 15 ch, 1 sl st in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 10 ch and 1 dtr in 1st dc from beg of 1ST ROUND, turn = 12 ch-loops.
ROUND 3: Sl st until the middle of 1st ch-loop, in the same loop work [1 BOBBLE START - Read explanation above, 4 ch, 1 BOBBLE - Read explanation above] = 1st corner, * work [4 ch, 1 dc in next ch-loop] 2 times, 4 ch, in next ch-loop work [1 bobble, 4 ch, 1 bobble] = corner *. Repeat from *-* the entire round. When repeating from *-* the last time do not work [1 bobble, 4 ch, 1 bobble] but finish with 1 sl st in 1st bobble. Cut and fasten the thread.
Work 28-32-40 squares in total.
Sew squares tog alongside and then across. Place the squares with 4-4-5 squares in breadth and 7-8-8 squares in height. Place 2 and 2 squares on top of each other and crochet them tog as follows: Work 1 dc in ch-loop in the corner on 1st square, 2 ch, 1 dc in ch-loop in the corner on 2nd square, * 2 ch, 1 dc in next ch-loop on 1st square, 2 ch, 1 dc in next ch-loop on 2nd square *, repeat from *-*, finish with 2 ch, 1 dc in ch-loop in the corner on 1st square, 2 ch, 1 dc in ch-loop in the corner on 2nd square. NOTE: Make sure that the transitions between every square are pretty when the squares are worked tog alongside. Piece measures approx. 36-36-45 cm in breadth and 63-72-72 cm vertically.
Work the same way as on PART 1.
Crochet the parts tog as follows: Place the short side on part 1 against right long side on part 2 (36-36-45 cm up on the bottom edge). Work the 2 parts tog the same way as before (1 dc in the corner, 2 ch and 1 dc in next ch-loop etc.). Then work the short side on part 2 against part 1 the same way but against the left long side on part 1.
1 fringe = 6 threads of approx. 40 cm. Fold the threads double, thread the loop through 1 ch-loop and pull the thread ends through the loop (so that 12 threads hang down in every fringe). Insert fringes on the diagonal sides on the poncho as follows: Insert 1 fringe in the 3 ch-loops between the corners on every square and 1 fringe in the ch-loop between the squares.
