Crochet Suede Trim Poncho

Lion Brand® Lion® Bouclé - Chenille Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

6 dcs + 4 rows = 4" (10 cm) with Lion Bouclé or Chenille Thick & Quick. BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

Base ch/sc: (Note This method creates a base chain and foundation row of sc at the same time: easy, sturdy and elastic, quite an elegant solution, especially useful for necklines and waistlines.) Start with a slip knot, ch 2, insert hook in second ch from hook, draw up a loop, yo, draw through one loop, yo and draw through two loops – one single crochet with its own chain at bottom. Work next stitch under loops of that chain. Insert hook under two loops at bottom of the previous stitch, draw up a loop, yo and draw through one loop, yo and draw through two loops. Repeat for length of foundation.

str (spike treble): Keep ch-space of previous row to back of work. Insert hook in loops of skipped st two rows below. Treble as usual.

NOTES:

Poncho is worked from the neck down in joined rounds, back and forth, for the most part in dc. Yoke is shaped with inc corners at front, back and shoulders. Back neck is raised with a separately worked short row.

Crochet Suede Trim Poncho Reviewed by Donna Allen on 2011-11-18 *****
I've made this twice and the ponchos look even better than the picture. It works up easily and fairly quickly. The suede trim is a very pretty contrast to other yarn.
