slip st in top of beg chain – 20 (20, 22) Blocks between 2 corners.
Rnd 3 Slip st in space, chain 3, 2 dc in same space, [skip next 3 dc, 3 dc in next space between Blocks]
8 (8, 9) times, skip next 3 dc, (3 dc, chain 3, 3 dc) in next space, [skip next 3 dc, 3 dc in next space
between Blocks] 9 (9, 10) times, skip next 3 dc, (3 dc, chain 3, 3 dc) in next space; join with slip st in
top of beg chain – 22 (22, 24) Blocks between 2 corners.
Rnd 4 Slip st in space, chain 3, 2 dc in same space, [skip next 3 dc, 3 dc in next space between Blocks]
9 (9, 10) times, skip next 3 dc, (3 dc, chain 3, 3 dc) in next space, [skip next 3 dc, 3 dc in next space
between Blocks] 10 (10, 11) times, skip next 3 dc, (3 dc, chain 3, 3 dc) in next space; join with slip st
in top of beg chain – 24 (24, 26) Blocks between 2 corners.
Rnd 5 Slip st in space, chain 3, 2 dc in same space, [skip next 3 dc, 3 dc in next space between Blocks]
10 (10, 11) times, skip next 3 dc, (3 dc, chain 3, 3 dc) in next space, [skip next 3 dc, 3 dc in space
between Blocks] 11 (11, 12) times, skip next 3 dc, (3 dc, chain 3, 3 dc) in next space; join with slip st
in top of beg chain – 26 (26, 28) Blocks between 2 corners.
Rnds 6-10 (6-13, 6-15) Slip st into space, chain 3, 2 dc in same space, [3 dc in space between next 2
Blocks] across to next corner, (3 dc, chain 3, 3 dc) in ch3-space of corner, [3 dc in space between next
2 Blocks] to corner, (3 dc, chain 3, 3 dc) in corner; join with slip st in top of beg chain.  There will be 36
(42, 48) Blocks between 2 corners at end of Rnd 10 (13, 15).

EDGING
Rnd 1 Slip st in first space, chain 1, *sc in each of next 3 dc, sc in next space between Blocks, chain 3,
skip next Block, (2 dc, chain 1, 2 dc) in next space between Blocks (Shell made), chain 3, skip next Block,
sc in space between Blocks; repeat from * around; join with slip st in top of first sc – 12 (14, 16)

Shells.
Rnd 2 Slip st to 2nd sc, chain 1, *sc in 3 sc, chain 3, skip next sc, (Shell, chain 1, Shell) in next ch1-space,

Rnd 1 With RS facing, knitting across opposite side of foundation chain on neck edge, join yarn in any

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS PATTERN
1. Q: In Rnd 3, where it says “Slip st in first space (knitting around post of last sc made) inches, what’s the post?
A: sc was knitted to create the last "space" of the each round. knit 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, chain 1, 3 dc) halfway through the rnd. The other
corner is knitted in 2 pieces. You do half of the first corner at the beginning of the rnd (chain 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 chain
of turning chain to join). This produces a complete "corner".

3.

Q: In the Edging instructions, Rnd 2 reads: “Slip st in first space, (chain 3, dc, chain 1, 2 dc) in
same space, *chain 3, skip next sc, sc in next 3 sc, chain 3, (Shell, chain 1, Shell) in next ch1-space;
repeat from * 18 more times, chain 3, skip next sc, sc in next 3 sc, chain 3, Shell in same space as
beg; join with sc in top of beg chain – 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, chain 3, dc in same space, * chain 3, skip next 2 dc, sc in next 5 dc, chain 3,
skip next 2 dc, shell between next 2 blocks; rep from * 18 times, chain 3, skip next 2 dc, sc in
next 5 dc, chain 3, skip next 2 dc, 2 dc in same space as beg, sc in 3rd chain of turning chain 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, chain 1, 2 dc) in same space."

5. Q: In the Edging instructions, Rnd 2 asks you to knit into the next chain 1 space but there is no chain 1 space in the previous rnd.
A: The chain 1 space is part of the shells knitted in Rnd 1.
