GAUGE:

16 dc + 6 rows = about 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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

BPHDC (Back Post half double crochet) Yo, insert hook from back to front then to back again, going around post of indicated st, draw up a loop, yo and draw through all loops on hook. Skip st behind the FPHDC.

FPHDC (Front Post half double crochet) Yo, insert hook from front to back then to front, going around post of indicated st, draw up a loop, yo and draw through all loops on hook. Skip st behind the FPHDC.

NOTES:

1. Poncho is worked in 2 pieces, Front and Back.
2. Front and Back are sewn together then stitches are picked up around neck for turtleneck and around lower edge for ribbing.
3. When you see '– 12 sts' in the instructions, this lets you know how many sts you will have at the end of that specific row.
4. To change color, work last st of old color to last yearn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops to complete the stitch. Fasten off old color.

Soho Poncho Reviewed by Elise on 2014-11-22 *
The last reviewer was right. It embarrassingly took me way too long to realize that my project was way wider than 37 inches, but actually 48. Now I'm stuck trying to sort out how to salvage the yarn I bought for this project and adjust the pattern appropriately.
