FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS PATTERN

  1. Q: In Rnd 3, where it says “Slip st in first space (working around post of last sc made) inches, what’s the post?
    A: sc was worked to create the last "space" of the each round. Work around the body of the sc (instead of in the top 2 loops) as if it were a ch-1 space.
     
  2. Q: Where is the other corner?
    A: There are 2 "corners" made in each rnd. One is at the center front and one at the center back of the poncho. The one corner is (3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc) halfway through the rnd. The other corner is worked in 2 pieces. You do half of the first corner at the beginning of the rnd (ch 3, 2 dc in same space), then finish it at the end of the rnd (3 dc in same space as beg, sc in 3rd ch of turning ch to join). This produces a complete "corner".
     
  3. Q: In the Edging instructions, Rnd 2 reads: “Slip st in first space, (ch 3, dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in same space, *ch 3, skip next sc, sc in next 3 sc, ch 3, (Shell, ch 1, Shell) in next ch1-space; repeat from * 18 more times, ch 3, skip next sc, sc in next 3 sc, ch 3, Shell in same space as beg; join with sc in top of beg ch – 40 Shells. inches but there is no sc in the previous rnd.
    A: There are 5 sc between the shells in Rnd 1 of the Edging. See the underlined phrases:
    Rnd 1 Sl st in first space, ch 3, dc in same space, * ch 3, skip next 2 dc, sc in next 5 dc, ch 3, skip next 2 dc, shell between next 2 blocks; rep from * 18 times, ch 3, skip next 2 dc, sc in next 5 dc, ch 3, skip next 2 dc, 2 dc in same space as beg, sc in 3rd ch of turning ch to join – 20 shells.
  4. Q: In the Edging, Round 1, what is a shell?
    A:  Please see the Stitch Explanations section at the beginning of the pattern, where the definition is  "Shell (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in same space."
     
  5. Q:  In the Edging instructions, Rnd 2 asks you to work into the next ch 1 space but there is no ch 1 space in the previous rnd.
    A:  The ch 1 space is part of the shells worked in Rnd 1.
