Joining the Shoulders:

Crochet poncho pattern stepCrochet poncho pattern step

Place the front and back panels with WS together. Join the shoulder seams with a loose ss through FL only. Start with RS first, fasten off. Start LS from outside edge and finish at neckline. Don’t fasten off.

Neck

Stitch in spiral rounds. Stitch count for each round is in brackets at the end of each round.

Round 1

Ch 1. Place a stitch marker in this ch st. Working around the neckline towards the centre front, 2-3dc around each end of row st for rows 71-78 (20 dc in total – don’t worry too much about their placement, as long as there are 20 stitches and they are evenly spaced.) 19 dc in next 19 st (starting and ending in the marked stitches on row 74 on the front panel). 2-3dc around each end of row stitch for rows 71-78 as before (20 dc in total. This should bring you to the opposite shoulder. Working round to centre back, 2 dc around each end of row stitch for rows 75-78 (8 dc in total), dc x28 in next 28 st (starting in the first marked htr and ending in the stitch before the last marked htr of row 74 on the front panel), 2 dc around each end stitch for rows 75-78 (8 dc in total). You should now be back at the left shoulder. (103)

Tr in ch st (move stitch marker to this st), tr x 101, 2tr in next st, (104)

Round 3

FPtr x 1 in st with marker (move marker to this st), FPtr, (BPtr x 2, FPtr x 2) x 25, BPtr x 2 (104)
