Round 1: Ch3, 2dc, ch3, 3dc in same st as ch3 , *sk 2st, in the 3rd ch make 3dc* repeat *to* 8 more times, (having 9 clusters of 3dc total), sk 2 st, in the 3rd (3dc, ch3, 3dc), repeat from *to* 9 times, sk 2 st, in the 3rd (3dc, ch3, 3dc), repeat from *to* 9 times, sk 2st, in the 3rd (3dc, ch3, 3dc), repeat from*to* 9 times, sl st in ch3 from beginning of your round.
Round 2-9: Sl st in the sp you just made when ending your last round, Ch3, 2dc in same sp, (you will begin all your rounds like this), you will work 3dc in between the clusters from previous round and you will work in the ch3 space (3dc, ch3, 3dc) creating your corner st. Every round you are increasing a 3dc cluster so by your 9th round you will have 17 3dc cluster between the corners.
When you are done with your 9th round fasten off.
Now you will lay out your poncho and arrange your granny squares choosing the color arrangement you like.


Attaching your Granny Squares:
Now you will take 1 granny and the corner of your poncho, with right sides together, Joining your yarn to the 3rd ch of your corner, closest to the left.
 
  

You will now sl st through the loop closest to you and the loop furthest from you on your work, matching st for st, now sl st along the granny, make 1 sl st in the first ch1 of your corner and stop, you will now add another granny, continue like this around your poncho. You will leave off your corners as they will be sewn in later.
Once you are done attaching your grannies to your poncho you will sew the sides of the grannies together, take your tapestry needle and yarn, starting the corner of 2 grannies you will sew them the same way you attached the grannies to the poncho, through the loop closest to you and the loop furthest from you on your work. Sew each granny together as well as the 4 corner grannies this way.
Now that everything is sewn together. With your crochet hook starting at any corner, join your yarn in the ch3 sp,

Round 1: Ch3, 2dc, ch3, 3dc in the ch3 sp, make 3dc in the sp between the cluster, continue like that working 3dc in between clusters and in each ch3 sp of each sewn granny until you meet the next corner of your poncho, in the ch3 sp make (3dc, ch3, 3dc) repeat this pattern on all 4 sides of your poncho, sl st with the ch3 from the beginning of your round. You will have 4 clusters of 3dc on each granny.
Round 2-13: Sl st in the sp you just made when ending your last round, Ch3, 2dc in same sp, (you will begin all your rounds like this), you will work 3dc in between the clusters from previous round and you will work in the ch3 space (3dc, ch3, 3dc) creating your corner st. Every round you are increasing a 3dc cluster. When you are done with your 13th round fasten off and hide all loose tails.


Adding the Fringe:
Take your Weekend Yarn in cream, cut strands about 20 inches
Fold 2 strands in half starting in a ch3 sp of a corner, insert your hook in the st, with the hook grab the yarn and pull through the st, sl the strands though the loop and pull snug. Continue along adding 2 strands in the sp between clusters, every middle dc of the cluster and in each ch3 corner space.
You are done with your Poncho!!!
