GAUGE

1 ripple at lower edge (with 7 sts between peaks and valleys): 7" (18 cm).

Note: Measured from peak to peak.

2 ripples at neck edge (with 2 sts between peaks and valleys): 5 3/4" (14.5 cm)

Check your gauge. Change hook size to obtain correct gauge.

NOTES

Poncho is worked in joined rnds beg at lower edge. Turn at beg of each rnd.

Poncho is worked in a ripple crochet pattern. The ripple pattern consists of alternating 3-st "peaks" and skipped st "valleys". Take care to keep the peaks and valleys of each rnd aligned. 3 sts are worked into the center st of peaks and sts are skipped over valleys. In Rnd 1 only 1 ch is skipped at a valley, so that there are no "holes" in the tips of the lower edge of Poncho. In all other rnds 2 sts are skipped at each valley.

Sts are decreased from lower edge up to neck edge. The total number of sts in a rnd is decreased by decreasing the number of sts between peaks and valleys.
