The pattern is written in UK terminology.

The ponchet is crocheted quite loosely in the round, alternating between double stranded, where both colours are used together, and single stranded, where only one colour is used.
The increase rounds are always done on the first round of single stranded crochet and the shrug automatically becomes wider on the double stranded rounds due to the bulk of the yarn.
The ponchet has a slightly longer back than front, this makes it drape down the back better.
