This is a very nice pattern as it is and I want to make it for my grand daughter. It may sound funny but what she likes is to watch tv with me when she stays over and instead of a blanket she likes to use a poncho to cover up with. She will love this.

Easy pattern but it doesn't tell me how many rows to do !!

This sounds great. I will try it on the next one I do. I kept losing track of the count until after the first 3 or 4 rows.

I have a variation I'd like to suggest. Since you are creating corners in the 2nd round, the first round needs to have a total number of "sets" divisible by 4, for the 4 sides. Therefore, if you chain 80, you'll need 20 "sets" for the first round. I would suggest 2 dc, chain 2, skip 2 chains in the original round, and repeat all the way around. Then for the 3rd round, you can simply use 3 dc in each space, plus the *3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc* for 2 opposite corners, and the *3 tc, ch 2, 3 tc* for the other 2 opposite corners. Much simpler for people like me, who have trouble keeping track of the count. And easy to increase, as you simply allow for 4 more "sets" for each larger size, increasing your beginning chain by 16 each time. The beginning chains would go up from 80, to 96, to 112, etc. (Although a beginning chain of 80 will actually fit over MY head.) Decreasing for smaller sizes would also be a snap, just decrease your beginning chain by 16. Also, in this pattern, you go directly into the corner when beginning the 3rd round. I did this, but then had to turn the poncho on the next round so that I didn't find myself in the middle of the corner after joining & slip stitching. I would suggest doing at least 2 sets of 3 dc before making a corner. Your pattern doesn't say, but I'm presuming that the triple crochet corners are used in the front & back, to lengthen the poncho. With the 2nd round being *2dc, ch 2, skip 2* all the way around, you can use a ribbon or contrasting crochet drawstring as an added decoration on the poncho, as well.
