I found this patter in a book from “Allers” (a swedish publication) from 1984, at a flee market. The book showed how to make a blanket with the flowers, but I wanted to make a poncho instead. It was not easy to figure out how to make the poncho, but when I saw the result it was worth it! In this book, I also found the “rustic lace square pattern”. It was a real surprice!


I used 49 flowers for the front.

54 flowers were used for the back.

Here is an illustration of how to chrochet the flower. This is part 1.
Here is part 2. Image 10-12 shows how to put them together.
Here are some picture of what it looked like when I was working on the poncho.

Symbols explained (US terms):
*…* … times
Repeat the instructions, for example:    “*ch 1, 2 sc* 5 times” would mean    “ch 1 followed by 2 sc, repeated five times”
** … ** … times
Short repeats within a longer ones, for example:    “*ch 1, **1 sc** 2 times* 5 times” would mean    “ch 1 and a repeat of 2 sc; all repeated 5 times”
«…» in …
Stitches to be crocheted in the same stitch, for example:     “«3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc» in the next stitch”
(counts as…)
Replacement for first stitch on a round, for example:     “ch 3 (counts as 1 dc)” would mean     “ch 3 used instead of 1 dc as the initial stitch”  
(Total …)
Sums up number of used stitches, for example:     “ch 1 (= 1 sc), ch 2. (Total 2 ch, 1 sc)” would mean     “used as 2 ch + 1 sc, in total”
