As you stitch up this poncho, I want you to relax 
and think of this as an art project,
 rather then a "Crochet Pattern". Have fun using up your
 left over yarns, and create a one of a kind,
 piece of Art that your pooch or cat can wear.

Note: The striping and color changes
 are going to be different for everyone, 
depending on what yarn scraps you have.
 I used only solid color yarn,
 but you can use prints or variegated, 
What ever you have in your scrap basket.

R : 1  - Ch 13 (16, 21) Starting in the 2nd ch from hook, 1sc in each ch, ch 1 turn
(12, 15, 20 sts - you st counts will not change)

R : 2 - *sc in next st, dc in the next st* Repeat From * to * across row,
Ch1 turn

R : 3 - *dc in next st, sc in the next st* Repeat From * to * across row,
Ch 1, turn

Make sure you stitch a sc in a dc, and a dc, in a sc.

R : 4-34(38, 42)  - Repeat R : 2 and R ; 3 alternating rows.
Tie off and weave in your ends.

Repeat R : 1 -34(38, 42)  Again for 2 pieces.

Lay the 2 pieces together as shown in the picture and pin in place.
Flip wrong side out and sew them together. Then Flip back to right side out.
You can also refer to the

The Neck Line- 
R : 1 - Attach your yarn to the center of the V on the back of your poncho,
sc evenly around the neck line. Join to the 1st sc, ch 1

Now you will need to relax and not worry about st counts,
 as much as placement of sts. 

R : 2 -3 -*1 hdc in the next st, hdc tog the next 2 hdc*
Repeat From * to * around neck line, join, ch 1

R : 4 - 1 sc in each st around, join, tie off.

Attach yarn to the "point" in the back of your poncho, 3 sc in that point,
sc evenly across the bottom of the poncho, 3 sc in the point on the front
 of the poncho, Then continue to evenly sc across the bottom of the
 poncho, join and tie off. Weave in all your ends.

Pom Pom -
Using several strands of different color yarns, make a big pompom
 and sew it on the front of the Poncho.
Please post your pictures of your 
Scrap Happy Dog Poncho on my
So I can see it!
