Abbreviations

Note: I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each row/ round instead of ch 3. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch 2, dc into same stitch (counted as 1st dc). In the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc into 1st stitch for every first dc of each row/ round, so just choose your best technique 🙂

Special stitches used: 

2dc- V stitch: ( 2dc, ch1, 2dc ) into same stitch or space.

This crochet convertible cowl / poncho pattern fits size L ( chest size: 36 to 38 inches )

Skill level: Experienced

Gauge: 12 double crochet stitches x 5 rows approximately 2 inches ( with materials indicated )
