Your finished granny will be approximately 17 inches. You can make your granny smaller or larger by making less or more rounds but remember by doing so the opening of your neck will be smaller or larger. After you assemble the 4 grannies I will show you how I made mine smaller. Hide all loose tails to the wrong side of your squares.
The Assembly
You will lay 3 of your squares out like so (see pic above)
1

1
2

You will assemble 1 with 2 and 1 with 3, starting with 1 and 2 place them right sides together.

With your yarn and hook you will now join the squares together, making sure they are right sides together, starting at the ch2 in between the corner petals, picking up the back loop in the granny that is closest to you and picking up the loop that is furthest on the other granny, you will want to match st for st as you assembly these 2 squares. Remember not to make your slip stitches too tight and not too loose. Once you have assembled 1 and 2 now it is time to repeat the same for 1 and 3, putting right sides together and sl st together. Making sure that when you are done your work will be joined and lay out like the pic above.
Now it is time to turn these 3 squares into your poncho by adding the 4th. Keeping your work wrong side facing you, you will take and fold in half grannies 2 and 3 (see pic)
32

You will sl st the same as you did for the other squares assembling 3 with 4 and 2 with 4. Making sure wrong sides are facing you, join them the same way you sl st the first 3.
3
4


3
2

Now that your poncho is assembled you will hide all loose tails in the wrong side of your work and turn it right side facing you.
You will now work on the neck opening to make it smaller, if you like the size it is leave it and you are done, but if you want to decrease the opening continue below.
Neck Opening:
Round 1: With the right sides facing you, with your hook and yarn join with a slip stich to any of the dc of the neck opening, ch1, sc in the same st, sc in each and every dc that presents itself to you, until you reach the ch2 space, you will make 1 sc in it and sc in the petal of the corner, in the next 2 st you will decrease them, sc2tog, you will now sc along in each dc until you reach the next ch2sp, repeat making a sc in in the ch2 sp, sc in the petal and in the next 2 st sc2tog, sc in each st until you reach the ch1 you made (do not sl st you will work in rounds.
Round 2: make a hdc in the next st, place a st marker on the hdc to mark the beginning of your round, hdc in each st until you reach the v part of your collar, you will again decrease 2 st hdc2tog, hdc until you reach the next V part of the collar and hdc2tog again, hdc until you get to your st marker.
Repeat round 2 for as many rounds as you like I did mine until I had 5 rounds of hdc, sl st with the next st and fasten off, hide all loose tails in the back of your work and you are all done my friends. You just created a beautiful light weight Boho Poncho!

The Body of your bag:
You will make 2, but won’t fasten off on the second one.

Round 11: (carry up the Barley yarn) ch1, sc in the same st, *in the sc from previous round make 11tr, sk
4tr, sc in the next* repeat from *to* around, sl st with the sc. Fasten off and hide all loose tails.
You could make your bag larger if you want by making more rounds, you may need to increase the
Trebles in between the sc by 2 as you go to keep the bag from curling.
You will now make a second one but DO NOT fasten off at the end of Round 11, continue below.
Creating the Sides of your Bag:

Row 1: Still with the Barley color, ch3 (counts as dc) working in the back loops only dc in each st until
you have 3 clusters of 11tr left, you will not work the sc that is in between your round and the free
clusters. Turn your work.
Row 2: ch3 (counts as dc) dc in each st working in both loops now until you reach the end of your row.
DO NOT fasten off, it is now time to assemble.
The Assembly:
Take the 2 panels and place them right sides together so the wrong side is facing you. You will be slip
stitching your panels together, you will want to line up the first panel so the cluster match and you will
begin in the sc right before the 11 tr cluster in that panel matching it to the second panel.
You will now sl st the 2 together by picking up the back loop on the panel closest to you and pick up the
loop on the back panel that is furthest from you, you will do this until you have reached the end of the
side of your bag. Fasten off and hide loose tails.

Line your Bag:
You will want to line your bag now. This is important, with the nature of crochet it can be stretchy so
once you begin to fill your bag it may stretch and you can lose little items as well. I do not know how to
sew too well and I am lucky to have my Mother in law to help me line my bags.
If you have trouble lining your bag another alternative is to use makeup bags and fill your little things in
them and pop that in your hand bag, just remember the heavier the items the more your bag will
stretch.

Adding the Handles:
Refer to the video at the 35 minute mark. You will sc your handle to your bag.
You will take the bag and have the wrong side facing you, with the Barley yarn and your hook join your
yarn at the sc right before the first 11tr cluster, ch1, Grab your handle now, pass your crochet hook
through the same st and under your handle yo, pass the yarn under the handle and through the st, yo
and pass the yarn through the 2 loops on your hook, you will want to make sure your tension is not too
tight or too loose, when you are done you will want to be able to slide the stitches on the handle as you
go. Continue to sc your handle and bag together until you reach the st before the side of your bag, sl st
in it and fasten off.
You will repeat this for the other handle, hide all loose tails and you are done.
