Lion Brand® Color Waves (old)


9 double crochet = 4 inches [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


Chain 26 (31).

Foundation Row

Double crochet in 4th chain from hook and in each chain across; turn – 24 (29) double crochet.

Row 1

Chain 3 (counts as first double crochet), double crochet in each double crochet across; turn.

Repeat Row 1 until piece measures 22 (25) inches [56 (63.5) cm] from beginning. Fasten off. Weave in ends.


Place marker on long side of first piece, 11 (13) inches [28 (33) cm] from one end.

Sew end of second piece to side of first piece between corner and marker.

Sew end of first piece to side of second piece (matching A to A and B to B as shown on schematic).


Cut 10 inches [12.5 cm] lengths of yarn and attach as follows, evenly spaced along bottom edges: Fold strand in half. Use crochet hook to draw fold through edge of Poncho, forming a loop. Pull ends of fringe through this loop. Pull to tighten.
