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 stitch used:

V stitch ( dc, ch 1, dc into same stitch or space )

2dc – V stitch ( 2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc into same stitch or space )

This crochet Turning Leaves poncho pattern fits size XL/ 2XL ( chest size: 40 to 46 inches )

Skill level: Intermediate

Gauge:  12 double crochet stitches x 4 rows = approximately 2 inches ( with materials indicated )
