beg – beginning
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
sl st – slip stitch
st(s) – stitch(es)
sk – skip
* – Repeat the instructions between the asterisks the number of times indicated. This repeat will contain multiple instructions.
Now that you’ve completed your rectangles, assembled them, and added your neckline, it is now time to add your trim and fringe(optional)!
Start by joining the yarn for your edging in the first stitch of your last row with a slip stitch (this stitch is the bottom “point” of your poncho)
Work 2 sc into this stitch
Sc evenly around the entire poncho, going up the side of the rectangle and working around the other rectangle. Make sure to work 3 sc into each corner to keep it square.
When you get back to the beginning, work one more sc into beginning st (where you started with the 2 sc)
Join in the beginning sc with a sl st.
*Ch 1, sc around the entire poncho, working 3 sc into the corners, join with a sl st in beginning sc.** Repeat from * to ** until you have the desired width of your edging. I completed 2 round of sc for my edging. If your poncho is looking a bit wonky like mine, really recommend blocking it. It helps tremendously with the shape.
Cut 9 strands of yarn to approximately 12″ in length
Fold strands in half
Decide where you want to place your fringe
Insert hook into the stitch where you want to place your fringe
Gather your yarn strands onto the hook and pull partially through the stitch so that there is a loop.
Pull the tail ends through the loop
Tighten the fringe by pulling on the tail ends to tighten the loop around the strands. Trim the fringe so that it is even.
And that’s it! Just add the fringe around where you want it to be and you are all done!
