Just thought I'd let you know I'm trying out the first poncho. It's so easy and it grows so quickly! The only problem I found was that (after a few rows) I noticed it was twisted. I fixed it by doing the chains across but not the four extra at the end, creating the first row of "loops" and attaching it to form a circle after. Does that make sense? I'll post a pic when I'm finished.

Nice work Angipants - love both of them! Cheesy

I have a pattern for a floral stitch poncho, sort of like the "jessica" shawl but a little different.  I don't think I can post it here because I bought it from someone, but I'll give you all the link (as soon as I get home).  She has great patterns and sends them to you by email - so no waiting!

It looks like a stockinette stitch with small yarn on large needles.  The top is a 1x1 or a 1x2 rib, looks like it was done 2" tall and then folded over and attached to the top.  The bow also looks to be a 1x1 rib, about 1 1/2 inches wide, tied into the bow and then attached.  You could probably do a crochet, but the hook would also need to be a bit bigger to get the flimsy look.

Okay, here it is: (Used size "Z" "Q" hook)

Chain (ch) 40  +3.  (the 3 are the double crochet and single chain for the next row.)
Row 1: double crochet(dc) in the 4th chain from the hook. *ch 1.  skip the next ch and dc in the next chain*:

x  -  x  -  x  -  x      - = single chain
x     x     x     x     x = double crochet
= = = = = = =    = =chain

repeat from * til end of row.  end with dc.  ch 3 and turn. Repeat row 1 for 12 rows:


At the end of row 12, ch 36 (do not ch the 3, see pic above) You should now have an "L" shape.  ch 3, turn and dc in 4th chain from hook. repeat Row 1 instructions:


repeat Row 1 for 12 total rows:


You should have a giant "L" like pictured.  The pink is where the ends will be connected:


Just slip stich (ss) in every ch, and finish off:

I love your ponchos and want to try as soon as I am done with current knitting project.  (trying to stick to the one at a time thing)
Questions - I have not seen a size Z crochet hook- S is the largest I've seen.  can you give any more details regarding the hook/yarn you used?
Thanks.

What kind of yarn did you use or does it matter? And what is a size z hook never seen one before. I am almost finished with my current project and would like to start this one asap. Looks like it would go fast and I need to make two before the 15th of Aug.

Okay, after some investigating, the hook equivalent is size "Q", or the biggest hook size you can find.  the head is about 1/4" wide and the hook head is about 1/2" long. I think someone may have drilled a Z into the shaft at one time.  All of my hooks and needles are hand me downs from family members.  Sorry for the confusion.

If you want to use a smaller hook, the 1st rectangle measured 30"  by 18".  So however many stiches and rows you can fit into that rectangle, just duplicate for the top "turned" portion:



If you want to do a larger size, just check that chain count for the two purples should match, and the row count for the pinks should match.  The green part is the diffrence between the two sides. Count each row as two chains.  So if purple equals 40 chains across, and pink is 14 rows, then the green equals 40-(14*2)=12 chains (plus 3, then double crochet in the 4th chain from hook). Also make sure that the green part is at least 10 -12 inches, so your head can fit through the hole when the sides are slip stiched together.

Let me know if this is not understandable!  Hope this helps for changing the sizes as needed.
