PONCHO:
Cast on 408-440-472 sts on circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 with Karisma. Work rib = P 2/K 2 for 8 cm / 3’’. Switch to circular needle size 4 mm / US 6.
Then work as follows: A.1 over the first 82 sts, AT THE SAME TIME dec 3 sts evenly over these sts (= 79 sts), * stockinette st over the next 26-30-34 sts, continue with P 2, K 2, P 2 over the next 6 sts (these sts are directly above P 2, K 2, P 2 from rib) *, repeat from *-* 2 more times, stockinette st over the next 26-30-34 sts, A.1 over the next 82 sts, AT THE SAME TIME dec 3 sts evenly over these sts (= 79 sts), * stockinette st over the next 26-30-34 sts, continue with P 2, K 2, P 2 over the next 6 sts (these sts are directly above P 2, K 2, P 2 from rib) *, repeat from *-* 2 more times, stockinette st over the next 26-30-34 sts = 402-434-466 sts.
Insert 4 markers in piece as follows: Insert first marker after 108-112-116 sts (between 2 K sts in first rib), second marker after 172-184-196 sts (between 2 K sts in third rib), third marker after 309-329-349 sts (between 2 K sts in fourth rib), and fourth marker after 373-401-429 sts (between 2 K sts in sixth rib).
Continue this pattern AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 10 cm / 4’’, dec 1 st on each side of markers - READ DECREASE TIP.
Repeat dec every 2 cm / 3/4’’ 19-19-19 times, then on every cm / ½’’ 5-9-13 times (24-28-32 dec in total) = 210 sts remain on needle in all sizes.
Piece measures approx. 52-56-60 cm / 20½”-22”-23½”. Switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4. K 1 round while AT THE SAME TIME dec 42 sts evenly = 168 sts. P 1 round.
Work rib = K 2/P 2 for 20 cm / 8’’.
Bind off sts with K over K and P over P.
