"Martha's Best Friend" Poncho Pattern Help


Here’s the pattern for a “Martha” poncho that I want to knit for my daughter’s pug, Etheline. I’m making the medium size, which I hope will fit. However, I’m having a heck of a time getting through these instructions. They’re just not making sense to me.

I managed to get through round 1 but, when I finished round 2, I can’t figure out what they mean by 15 blocks; 2 corners. I’ve got six sets of 3dc and then 6 sets of 3 dc, ch3, 3dc and one set of 3dc, ch1, 3dc. Sooooooo, how does that compute to 15 blocks, 2 corners?

I’m using Homespun because, if I’m gonna call it a “Martha” poncho, it HAS to be in Homespun, just like hers! I thought this was going to be a nobrainer but, frankly, this is giving me a headache!

Any ideas out there? Thanks.


LadyBeBop over at Chrochetville helped me to “see” what I was doing wrong. I totally was misreading the pattern. Duh!

It’s easy to have a “huh” moment when starting a new crochet project. I usually put it up for the night then start on it the next day then It’s like a light bulb turns on. Don’t know why but that usually solved the confusion for me.:thumbsup:

Very glad you got it figured out. It is going to be so cute when it’s finished. :cheering:
