This poncho pattern is super cute! I love the look, but I would be concerned for a small child just learning to walk to wear something like this. What if they fall? I would also consider changing the color, depending on whether it is for a boy or a girl. Hopefully I will not have any issues with the pattern.

I am having trouble understanding the shoulders. I did the left front and got 20 DC. Then for the right I started on the outside egde went in 20 DC but the neck looks to large. What is the witdh of the poncho ? I hope you can help me with this.

to do "1 dc in next ch-1 sp" instead of slipping your crochet hook into the stitch you created in the previous row, like you would usually do, slip it into the space created by the chain 1 that you made in the previous row. In the first row you have 91 dc's, the next row you will have 46 dc's and 45 ch 1 spaces, then the next row will be back to 91 dc's, next 46 dc's and 45 ch 1 spaces, etc. Hope this helps.

how do you do this 1 dc in next ch-1 sp
