Mesh Over Brook Poncho

Making this mesh poncho was easy and fun. I love the color’s in Lion Brand’s Mandala yarn, in colorway Robin Egg. I had to cut the yarn and piece it in place, but the effect is so springy and beautiful. If you are familiar with the multi stitch Over Brook Poncho then you probably know how much fun the Crochet Along (CAL) was. After the CAL was over, we followed it up with a “Crochet Runway Competition” that was over the top exciting. While designing and writing the pattern for the Over Brook Poncho I made a “Mesh” Over Brook Poncho and a lot of you were asking for the pattern.  Since I switched from a 4 weight to a 3 weight yarn. Necessary changes had to be made to the mesh portion, but the pattern explains all of that for you.

Mesh Over Brook Poncho

 

Level of difficulty: EASY    Any 3 weight yarn, I chose Lion Brand’s Mandala yarn, approx. 1500 – 1700 yds

Hook: I-9/5.5mm

Gauge: 4” across = 5 CH 4 sp’s; 4” Vertical = 6 rounds CH 4 sp’s

Special Stitches:

5 DC Shell: 5 DC in st indicated in pattern

Beg. DC V: SLP ST into CH 1 space of prev. V; CH 4 (ch4 Counts as DC and CH 1); DC in same CH 1 sp.

DC V: [DC, CH 1, DC] in CH 1 space of prev. V

Beg. HDC V: SLP ST into CH 1 space of prev. V; CH 3 (ch3 Counts as HDC and CH 1); HDC in same CH 1 sp.

HDC V: [HDC, CH 1, HDC] in CH 1 space of prev. V

Stitch Key

SC = single crochet

DC = Double Crochet

HDC = Half Double Crochet

CH = chain

SLP ST = slip stitch

in sp. = execute st. by going under the CH that is creating the sp. Do not execute st. directly into a CH

SP = space

nxt = next

beg. = beginning

st = stitch

repeat between * * = repeat the sequence that is between the * * as many times as stated

x = times, will follow number, example repeat sequence 8 x or 8 times

ATTENTION! ATTENTION! ATTENTION! There will be a CH 3 and NOT a CH 4 at the end of the Right Side before you execute the HDC V. The same goes for the Left Side, there will be a CH 3 right before joining to the Beg. HDC V. This helps to keep the twirl to a minimum and minimizes the gap that appears if executing a CH 4.

NOTES:

1. Annotations have been added to the pattern that indicate the Right and Left side of the Poncho within each round. I found this to be an easy way to “keep my place”.  Right Side or RS;   Left Side or LS

2. This pattern includes charts that are not inclusive of every round. The charts are self-explanatory and are there as a guide only.

3. I have given some rounds a title. If I had to put my work on hold, this helped me find my place in the pattern when I was able to work on it again.

4. Pay attention to the V stitch in each round. Some rounds will have you execute a DC V, and others will have you execute a HDC V. (This does not apply to the TRBL V st.)

5. When executing the Mesh portion of the poncho, it is important to CH 3 right before the join on each side.

6. ATTENTION! ATTENTION! ATTENTION! There will be a CH 3 and NOT a CH 4 at the end of the Right Side before you execute the HDC V. The same goes for the Left Side, there will be a CH 3 right before joining to the Beg. HDC V. This helps to keep the twirl to a minimum and minimizes the gap that appears when executing a CH 4.

7. IMPORTANT! There is a bit of a twirl in the “V” area, but the longer the poncho becomes, it will ease out. Blocking also helps to eliminate what little bit of twirl that is left when the poncho is finished.

8. This pattern is worked in one direction. There will not be any turns in this project.

Designer Note: I have made this mesh poncho in a 4 weight yarn, but I recommend a 3 weight for the airy light effect needed for this mesh poncho. The time I made the poncho in a 4 weight it was a little heavy, but nice all the same. If you do decide to make this in a 4 weight you will only need to execute ch 3’s instead of ch 4’s during the mesh portion of the poncho.

ponchoUsing MC: Loosely Ch 128, put marker at 65. Be very careful not to twist and join in circle.

NOTE: If you would like to lengthen your poncho, add 3 rounds of CH 4 + 2 CH 3 spaces, making sure the math is correct, adding one repeat for every 3 rounds you add on.
If you would like to shorten your poncho, subtract 3 rounds of CH 4 + 2 CH 3 spaces, making sure the math is correct, subtracting one increase for every three rounds you subtract.

There is more information about how to shorten and lengthen in the PDF file that you will find in my Ravelry Store. It also has a chart to help explain the shortening and lengthening process. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/mesh-over-brook-poncho

Round 48-49: Repeat Rounds 46 & 47 consecutively. End Off, weave in all ends.
Note 1. You will be executing your stitches in CH 3 spaces, instead of CH 4 spaces.
Note 2. Add one more repeat for each time you there is a repeat of the last two edging rounds.
Note: 3. You can add length to the poncho here, just repeat Rounds 48 & 49 consecutively adding one more repeat, until you reach the length you desire.

Block your poncho using your favorite method. I found the steam method to be easy. There are many you tube videos out there showing you how to use a steam iron. Jayda InStitches has video that is my favorite method. CLICK HERE for the video that shows you how.
