Sophie Inspired Poncho

Here is my Sophie Inspired Poncho

Thank You Dedri Uys for letting me post the Link to her Sophie Pattern

You can find the pattern here:

You will need to scroll down the page of the link above for Dedri's Pattern Links

What you will need:

4 Sophie's, (Rows 1 - 27) made with a 4MM hook and DK Yarn

Row 28:  In one of the corner spaces, work a standing dc, then 1 more dc. Continue in dc, and work around your square, when you get to a corner, 2dc, ch2, 2dc. Do not forget the 'hidden sts' before and after the corner spaces. When you get back to the start, 2dc, ch2 & sl st into top of standing dc. 

Row 29:  Working 2dc, ch2, 2dc, in each corner space, make 24 V-Sts (dc, ch2, dc) evenly along each side (you should skip 2 sts between each one). 

Row 30:  Working 2dc, ch2, 2dc, in each corner space, ch2, in each V-St, (dc3 tog cluster, ch 2)

Fasten Off

Join squares together using whatever method you prefer. I just did ch2, sc in first square, ch2, sc in corresponding sp in second square (see pics below):

To finish:
Standing dc, dc2 in corner sp, in next ch2 sp, (5dc, sc in next ch2 sp,) around, working 3dc, ch2, 3dc in corner space, when you get back to the starting corner, ch2, 3dc. Fasten off. 

For V-Neck (make 2)
Ch93, dc in 4th ch from hook, dc to end

Work 3 or 4 rows in FPDC & BPDC RIB

Join both pieces together so that each end forms a V, and sew to neck from wrong side.
