I'm not really sure where the pattern repeat is in this section of this (http://www.caron.com/projects/ss/gift_poncho.html) pattern, because the first asterisk isn't in the pattern (typo). Here's how the pattern is written:

Loosely ch 136 (154, 169).
Foundation Row: Beginning in 4th ch from hook, dc in next ch, ch 1, skip 1 ch, dc in next 2 ch; repeat from * across, end dc in last 2 ch—134 (152, 167) sts, turn.


Where does this pattern begin? I can try to e-mail Caron, but they don't have a separate link for pattern help, so I'm afraid I won't be able to get a response.

Most logical repeat would be:

Foundation Row: Beginning in 4th ch from hook, dc in next ch, *ch 1, skip 1 ch, dc in next 2 ch; repeat from * across, end dc in last 2 ch—134 (152, 167) sts, turn

I'm still not that advanced of a crocheter, so for me to guess where the repeat would've started would've been too difficult for me to figure out. Thank you very much!!!:cheering:

I don't know that I'm correct - just that makes the most sense to me...

it will make a repeating pattern of 2 double crochets with a single chain over a space between each set of double crochets.

Me too! Have you tried it, and did the stitch count come out right?
