can someone confirm that when either side has the solid dc stitch, should always be 4 dc? I of course am not asking about when either side has the open space end.

Love this pattern but it is not showing the instructions for the larger sizes? Or am I missing something?

Hi there! I just updated the pattern so it's a little easier to read, and after some sleuthing, it looks like the only change to make the large sizes is found in this row: "Rep last 2 rows 8 (10-12) times more, working increases as established. 20 (24-28) rows in total." Essentially, it looks like you just work the pattern a few more rows to get the larger size! I hope that helps! -Dana from FaveCrafts

This is a lovely pattern for the plus size lady but I read a comment on another site that rows 3 and 4 were incorrect and so didn't increase as needed. Does anyone have any information about this problem please?

This is sooooo pretty. I wish I knew how to crochet. I would make this in a spring color and start wearing it next month. Is crochet somewhat easy to learn? What would be the best way for me to learn?

Finally! A poncho that is made in 2 simple pieces and sewn together. I have a difficult time following the patterns for designs that are made as one piece. You can also NOT sew the sides together and put some cool buttons there instead. That way you could leave a couple unfastened for a more cool and casual look. Oh! I really, really appreciate that we are given patterns for plus sized girls. Usually ponchos are given as a one size fits most. And "most" does not necessarily mean "all". Bravo for the bigger sizing offered!

This is beautiful, I wanna make this. The color is okay but this can be also done another solid color or in multicolors. Thanks for providing the sizes. The link to the pattern is here http//

I am a beginner how do you adjust the stitches to make a 2X ?

I can just see myself walking the Left Bank in this item. It has a sophisticated but simple look to it. I like it.

thank you for share. I love it.
