Lion Brand® Homespun®

GAUGE:

3 Blocks (3-dc) + 4 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Block pattern.
6 1/2 sc + 8 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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

NOTES:

1. Poncho is worked in rnds beg at the neck, in a pattern of 3-dc Blocks.
2. Beg with Rnd 2, blocks are worked in the spaces between Blocks of the previous rnd.
3. Poncho is shaped with (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) corner, at both front and back.

Great pattern, I made the foundation chain super loose as was recommended and made the 2/3 toddle size. It came out beautifully. I've been asked to make it for a friend in an adult size so I'll have to make some modifications but it should be easy.
