Stitch Explanations

Front post double crochet (fpdc) and Back post double crochet (bpdc): See a tutorial for front and back post double crochet on my blog here: Front Post and Back Post Double Crochet Tutorial.

 

Front post single crochet(fpsc): It is worked like a regular sc except for the way you insert your hook. See the same tutorial for front post double crochet above. The hook is inserted in the same way for a fpsc.

 

sc2tog: Insert your hook and pull up a loop in each of the next 2 sts, yarn over and pull through all the 3 loops on your hook.—–sc2tog completed

 

dc2tog: YO, insert your hook into the next st and pull up a loop, YO and pull through 2 loops. Keeping the remaining 2 loops on your hook, YO, insert your hook into the next st and pull up a loop, YO and pull through 2 loops, YO and pull through all the remaining 3 loops on hook.—-dc2tog completed

 

fpdc2tog: YO, insert your hook around the post of the first fpdc and pull up a loop, YO and pull through 2 loops. Keeping the remaining 2 loops on your hook, YO, insert your hook around the post of the next fpdc and pull up a loop, YO and pull through 2 loops, YO and pull through all the remaining 3 loops on hook.—-fpdc2tog completed

 

Gauge

Pattern for Gauge Swatch

Chain 38 and follow rows 1 to 3 of the pattern. Keep repeating Row 3 until your piece measures 6 inches. Then measure for gauge.

Gauge

Using J(6mm) Hook,

6 Bumps = 7 inches long.

4 Bumpy lines(8 Rows)= 4 inches

Each couple of rows add a bumpy line and 1 inch to your fabric. Use any size hook to attain the gauge.

Stitch for crochet turtleneck poncho

1. Shows where to work the 3 dc stitches

 

Note: Once you work the fpsc, your ch-3 loop will get pushed behind. So look behind the fpsc to find the ch-3 loop adjacent to it. See pic 1 above. 

 

2. Close up of stitch pattern

 

Row 3 (see pic 2 above): Ch 3, 2 dc in the same st as ch 3, *[sk 2 dc, fpsc in next dc, ch 3, 3 dc in the adjacent ch-3 space], repeat from * and after 3 dc in last ch-3 space, sk next 2 dc, fpsc around beginning ch 3, turn.——– 25(28, 31) projections or repeats

 

 Your work should measure 28(32, 36) inches long. Repeat Row 3 until your work measures 16(18, 21) inches wide. Do not fasten off.

 

Extension

Place a marker in the 14th (16th, 19th) projection from where your hook is right now. It will be  16, (18,  21)” away from the edge.

 

Row 1: Ch 3, 2 dc in the same st as ch 3, *[sk 2 dc, fpsc in next dc, ch 3, 3 dc in the adjacent ch-3 space], repeat from *  until you work 3 dc in the ch-3 space right before the marked repeat, sk next 2 dc, fpsc around 3rd dc of the marked repeat, turn.——– 14(16, 19) projections or repeats

 

Row 2: Ch 3, 2 dc in the same st as ch 3, *[sk 2 dc, fpsc in next dc, ch 3, 3 dc in the adjacent ch-3 space], repeat from * and after 3 dc in last ch-3 space, sk next 2 dc, fpsc around beginning ch 3, turn.——–14 (16, 19) projections or repeats

 

Keep repeating the above row until you have a total of 58 (66, 74)rows and the extension measures 28 (32, 36)” long from the left panel. Do not fasten off. 

 

Seaming the Poncho

3. Measure and place a marker at the point shown.

 

Place a marker 16(18, 21) inches away from the top corner of the extension as shown in pic 3 above. The wrong side(WS) of the fabric should be facing up. The wrong side is the side on which you worked your very last row of the extension. 

 

Seaming the turtle neck crochet poncho

             4. Bring down the short side and seam

 

Now bring down the top edge to join the extension, match point A to point A and point B to point B, sc it together (see pic 4 above). Confused? Place the same color markers at the 2 points marked A. Place another pair of a different color markers at points marked B. Bring down your fabric to match the same color markers and sc the sides together between the markers. Take care not to stretch the fabric while you seam. Do not fasten off.

 

Finishing the Neck

5. Leveling the serrated edge in Round 1

 

Note: Your yarn will now be at the neck hole. In Row 1 below, you will work a leveling row along the serrated edge of the neck hole as shown in pic 5 above.

 

Round 1: Ch 1 (does not count as a st), 1 hdc in next 3 dc sts, 1 dc in the next sc, *(sk next 3 chs, 1 hdc in next 3 dc sts, 1 dc in the next sc), repeat from * to the end of the serrated side, count your sts so far. On the second half of the neckline, distribute enough sts to get a total of 88( 104, 112) sts, sl st to the first st, turn. ———-88( 104, 112) sts around. 

 

For a V-neck poncho, you can fasten off now and weave in the ends at the neck. Jump to Sleeves below if you would like to add sleeves to your V-neck poncho.
