over the past few weeks i have managed to teach myself to crochet (hooray). now i have this gorgeous poncho pattern and really want to try it out. problem is, i just cant seem to understand chain lace stitch! in my step-by-step book, i wrote out the instructions, and eliminated the abbreviations and wrote them out properly because i thought i would be able to understand better. but do i now? do i hell!

would anybody be super nice enough to give me a step by step how to, or a link to a really super simple tutorial. baring in mind my book simple, with simple pictures that are step-by-step. i guess im just a dunce. any helpers? ta x

the rest of the poncho is cool (as in the neck bit) and the stitch is just simple chain lace (which i cant seem to graspe) i was just trying to learn it from a step-by-step guide in my crochet how-to book. but i wasnt getting any of it, even though i wrote out the abbreviations in full. i checked out various sites but no luck yet.... one shall keep trying though  Wink

I'll take a look at the pattern again--I think I can explain it--in British terms, if you like.

Greetings NaeNae,

Here's my British translation for the Posh Poncho at http://www.crochetpatterncentral.com/patterns/poshponcho.php

Chain 90; join to make round. Chain 1 but do not turn. (You're working in the round!)
R 1: Dc in each chain around; slip stitch to top of ch 1 to join. Ch 1.
R 2: *dc in next 2 stitches; put 2 dcs in next stitch* Repeat between * and* around, slip stitch to join; ch 1. (You now have 120 stitches total)
R 3: *dc in next stitch, tr in next stitch* Repeat around. Slip stitch to join.
R 4: Ch 3 (this counts as your first tr), dc in next stitch. *tr in next stitch, dc in next stitch* around. Slip stitch to join. Ch 1.
R 5: Repeat round 3.
R 6: Repeat round 4.
R 7: dc in each stitch around
R 8: Ch 2 [yarn over hook, insert hook in next st and draw up loop, yarn over hook and draw through two loops on hook] 3 times. Now yarn over hook and pull through all hoops on the hook. Ch 5. *[yarn over hook, insert hook in next stitch and draw up loop, yarn over hook and draw through two loops on hook]4 times. Yarn over hook and draw through all loops still on hook. (You made a four stitch treble crochet cluster.) Ch 5.* Repeat between the * around. On the final set of chains, only chain 2 and then tr into the top of the first cluster -- this completes your last loop and puts you in the center of it for working the next round.
R 9: Dc in the loop, ch 6. *dc in center of next chain loop, ch 6* repeat around. On the final loop, only chain 3 and tr into the top of the first dc.
R 10 & 11: repeat as for round 9, only do ch 7 between dcs.
R 12 & 13: repeat as above only do ch 8 between dcs.
R 14 & 15: repeat as above, doing ch 9 between dcs. (You will notice as your chain loops get longer that you need to do the final loop differently. You might need to chain 4 and do a double treble crochet into the top of the last dc -- I didn't record what I did, I simply tried to make the last loop the same size as the others in this round. If you pay attention, you'll be fine.)
R 16 & 17: repeat as above with ch 10 between dcs.
R 18 & 19: repeat as above with ch 11 between dcs.
R 20: repeat as above with ch 12 between dcs.
