1.  Small - Medium:  Working with 2 strands of yarn, chain 36, slip stitch to join, being careful not to
                     twist the chain. 
      Large - XLarge:  Working with 2 strands of yarn, chain 40, slip stitch to join, being careful not to
                 twist the chain.

2.  Chain 1, single crochet in each stitch around, slip stitch to join. (S-M: 36; M-L: 40)

3.  Chain 1 and turn, working in the back side of the stitch for this row only, single crochet in each
     stitch around, slip stitch to join. ((S-M: 36; M-L: 40))

4.   *Chain 3, single crochet in the next stitch, repeat from * around.  (36 loops formed for S-M; 40 loops
 formed for M-L)

5.  Slip stitch into the next chain 3 loop 2 times (2 slip stitch in the same loop to position into the  
     center of the chain 3 loop). Chain 1, single crochet in the same loop, * single crochet in the next loop, 
     repeat from * around, slip stitch to join in the first single crochet. (36; 40)

6.  Chain 1 and turn, working in the back side of the stitch for this row only, make 2 single crochet in each
stitch around, slip stitch to join. (72, 80)


7. *Chain 3, single crochet in the next stitch, repeat from * around. (S-M: 72 loops around;  M-L: 80 loops)

stitch around, slip stitch to join. (72, 80)

10. Repeat step 7, 8, and 9 until the poncho is long enough after stretching (see blocking below).  If after
    stretching, you would like it longer, simply repeat sequence of 7, 8, and 9.  This poncho ended with a
    row of chain 3 loops (step 7),  then the fringe was added into the loops.  


11.   BLOCKING:  Blocking can lengthen the poncho 6 to 8 inches!
      This poncho achieves its best appearance when blocked.To block,
      EITHER, saturate with water, place on a thick bath towel or blanket, stretch the length of the
 poncho, AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE, pulling as hard as you can to open up the rows of single crochet.
 (They will take on a ‘broomstick lace’ type of long stitches.)
     OR:
      Place on an ironing board, steam the poncho, (steam by placing the iron slightly above the poncho, and
      applying heavy steam), then stretch the length as much as possible.

FRINGE:  Wrap yarn around a 6 inch piece of cardboard.  Cut across the bottom loops to make
            12 inch long lengths of yarn.  Fold 5 strands in half, insert the fold through a loop on the
            bottom of the poncho, then pull the ends through the loop, pull to tighten and form a fringe.  
            Fringe was added in every 2nd loop in this design.

OPTIONAL: Chain a cord of approx. 40 inches, pass through the neck opening of the poncho.
           Add tassels to the ends of the cord.

HOW TO MAKE A TASSEL: 
1.  Wind yarn around palm of hand.  
    For a longer tassel as in this design, wind
    yarn around a 4 inch piece of cardboard.
2.  Tie into a bundle.
3.  Tie a ball shaped puff at the top with a piece of yarn.
4.  Cut open the loops on the bottom.
5.  Trim the ends evenly.
6.  Pull the yarn ends from the ball section into the center of
    the tassel.
7  Tie onto the project with the 2 yarn ends from step 2.
   Pull yarn ends into the center of the tassel.




Weave all yarn ends into the finished work.

double crochet in the next 6 stitches, V stitch in the next stitch;
double crochet in the remaining 5 stitches.


3.  Chain 2 and turn, *double crochet in the same stitch, and in each stitch up to the next
V stitch.  In the chain 1 space of the V stitch, make a V stitch.
*Double crochet in each stitch up to the next V stitch, in the chain 1 space, make a
V stitch.  Repeat from * two more times, double crochet in each remaining stitch.

4.  Repeat step 3 for 3 more rows.

    chain 1 space of the next V stitch, skip all the stitches up to the next V stitch (armhole),
    Repeat from * one more time, double crochet in each remaining stitch of the row.

6.  Skirt: Working with main color Chain 2 and turn, 2 double crochet in the same stitch,
   make 3 double crochet in each stitch around, slip stitch to join.

7.  *Chain 2 and turn, working in the back side of the stitch only, double crochet in each stitch
around, slip stitch to join.

8.  Repeat step 7 for as many rows as needed for the length desired. See the chart below.

9.  Border:

around, slip stitch to join.  
*Chain 3, single crochet in the next stitch, repeat from * around,
slip stitch to join in the base of the first chain 3, fasten off.

NOTE:  When working the neck opening, and working down the 2 sides of the back
opening, instead of working a single crochet in the next stitch, work a single crochet in the
base of the next double crochet.  This will make a more flat trim around the opening.

Use one of the loops as a buttonhole, and sew a button that will fit through the loop on the opposite side.

Pass a ribbon through the first row of stitches on the skirt.

Weave all yarn ends into the finished work.
