Barbie's Paloma's Poncho

Remember Paloma's Poncho? Here is:
Barbie's Paloma's Poncho!
Size 10 bedspread crochet cotton thread
Size 7 steel crochet hook
Size c hook, small amount fun fur for trim (optional)
Ch 38. Dc in 4th ch from hook and in each ch across. Ch 3, turn.
Rnd 2: Skip 1st dc, *hdc in next dc, ch 1, skip next dc, repeat from * across. Ch 3, turn.
Rnd 3: Skip 1st ch-1 space, *hdc in hdc, ch 1, skip ch-1 space, repeat from * across. Ch 3, turn.
Rnd 4: Dc in next dc and ch-1 space all the way across.
Repeat rounds 2-4 one more time. Fasten off.
Make two rectangles. Sew together as Palomas' poncho instructions.
Attach fun fur to 'point'. (I pick a side I want to be the back, and attach there.) Sc in each sc or space all around, with two sc in each point. Fasten off and weave in ends.
With thread and size 7 hook, attach to back of poncho with a sl st. Sc in same space. *Ch 3, skip next space, sc in next space. Repeat from * around. Fasten off and weave in ends.
Ch about 90 then thread free end through ch-3 loops. If you need a longer chain, then chain more. Do not fasten off (for optional flowers on end of chain. If you aren't making the flowers, then go ahead and fasten off.) Ch 2. 5 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Join to first sc. *Ch 3, dc in same space. Ch 3, sl st in same space. Repeat from * in each sc around. You will have 5 petals. Join to first sl st. Fasten off. Join thread in other loose end. Ch 2, and repeat for second flower. You may use this pattern for personal use, but please do not post this pattern on your site. Also the finished poncho is not to be sold on ebay or your site either. Thank you. :)
