    STITCH EXPLANATIONS

    BPDC (back post double crochet) Yarn over, insert hook from back to front then to back, going around post of indicated st, draw up a loop, (yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice. Skip st in front of the BPDC.

    FPDC (front post double crochet) Yarn over, insert hook from front to back then to front, going around post of indicated st, draw up a loop, (yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook) twice. Skip st behind the FPDC.

    NOTES

    1. Front and Back are worked separately.

    2. The yarn color is changed to make stripes.

    3. Turtleneck and rib at lower edge are worked directly onto Poncho.

    4. An edging is worked around each armhole.

    5. To change yarn color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete the st. Proceed with the new color. Fasten off old color.
