Two-Way Poncho

Lion Brand« Homespun® - Chenille Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

5 sc = 4" [10 cm] with A on larger hook. 9 sts = 4" [10 cm] in 2dcst with B on smaller hook. 2 rows = 112" [4 cm] in pattern.

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:

2 dc st (2 dc stitch) Yo, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, yo and draw through 2 loops on hook; yo, insert hook in same st and draw up a loop, yo and draw through 2 loops on hook; yo and draw through 3 remaining loops on hook.

 

NOTES:

To keep track of increases, mark each RS corner space and move the marker up to the WS corner sc each time. Carry unused strand loosely up the WS of work.
