PONCHO:

2nd round: *K 3 sts in the same st as follows: K1, P1, K1; then P3 tog*, repeat from *-*.
3rd round: Purl
4th round: *P3 tog, K 3 sts in same st as follows: K1, P1, K1*, repeat from *-*.

Worked in the round on circular needles.
Cast on 196-212-228 sts on 80 cm / 32'' circular needle size 6 mm / US 10 with Alaska. Knit 1 round, P 1 round, K 1 round, P 1 round and K 1 round.
Insert a marker at the beg of round (= mid back).
Continue in berry pattern – see above. Note! Make sure to beg each round right after the marker in order that the pattern fits.
When piece measures 24-25-26 cm / 9½"-9 3/4"-10 1/4" K 1 round, at the same time dec 60 sts evenly on round = 136-152-168 sts.
Now P 1 round, K 1 round, P 1 round and K 1 round.
Continue in berry pattern until piece measures 32-33-34 cm / 12½"-13"-13½".
K1 round, at the same time dec 50 sts evenly on round = 86-102-118 sts.
P 1 round, K 1 round, P 1 round, K 1 round, at the same time dec 14-24-28 sts evenly on the last K round = 72-78-90 sts left.
Work 6 cm / 2 3/8'' in Rib as follows: K2/P4 (seen from the WS).
Bind off, piece measures approx 40-41-42 cm / 15 3/4"-16 1/4"-16½.
