GAUGE:

12 dc + 5 1/2 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in pattern.
10 1/2 sc + 14 rows = 4 in. (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.

Child 'Coming Home' Poncho Reviewed by Patricia on 2012-11-28 ****
I am a beginner to crochet, this is the first pattern that I have followed without a video tutorial. It was very easy until I got to the edging. It did not seem to look right, so I just did my own thing and ended up with a nice ridging.
