Cast on 84 sts on double pointed needles 4mm with Alaska and knit stocking sts. When piece measures 4.5 cm, knit another 2 rounds whilst inc. 52 sts evenly on the first of these 2 rounds = 136 sts. Change to needles 5mm and insert a marker at beginning of round (= mid back). Continue in berry pattern – see explanation above.
Note: Make sure to start each round in 1st st after the marking thread in order that the berries appear on a slope.
When piece measures 22 cm, K all sts tog 2 and 2 = 68 sts.
Repeat the dec on next round = 34 sts.
Pull a double thread through remaining sts and pull tight.
Note: Turn the hat inside out so that berry pattern is on the right side before fastening thread ends.


Knitting tension: 8 sts x 16 rows on needle no 8 mm in garter sts = 10 x 10 cm.

Garter sts: 1st row = Knit, 2nd row = Knit

The poncho is knitted in 2 parts and from bottom edge and up.

Back: Cast on 51 sts using 2 needles no 8 mm with Puddel (use 2 needles to ensure that the edge doesn’t become too tight).
Remove 1 needle and knit garter sts. When piece measures 8 cm, dec 1 st each side every 2 cm a total of 11 times = 29 sts.
When piece measures 32 cm, cast off.

Front: Cast on and knit as described for back piece, but when piece measures 28 cm, cast off the middle 9 sts for neck. Dec. on each neck edge on every other row: 2 sts 1 time, 1 st 1 time.
When piece measures 32 cm, cast off.

Assembly: Sew the 2 pieces together in the outer part of the outer most st from neck and down until there’s approx 8 cm left (split).

Crochet border: Crochet with hook size 6 and Eskimo along the bottom edge (including splits) as follows: 1 dc in st, *3 ch, skip approx 3.5-4 cm, 1 dc in next st*, repeat from *-* and finish with 3 ch, skip approx 3.5-4 cm and 1 sl st in dc from beginning of row.

Tassels: 1 tassel = 3 threads Eskimo + 2 threads Puddel (= 5 threads), each 60 cm long. Fold threads, pull loop through st at corner of poncho and pull ends through loop.
Make another 17 tassels and attach a tassel to each corner and distribute the rest along the bottom edge.

Erg handig in de zomer, als schouderwarmer. De lengte is precies goed. Ook voor beginners een leuk brei project. Wil het wel een naam geven. Lilly.

Jeg vil gerne strikke den i large kan I hjælpe med antal masker samt indtagningen? Havde købr garn da jeg opdagede at denne poncho kun er i str M i opskriften - ærgerligt men håber I kan hjælpe

Hej Lene. Jeg kan desvaerre ikke skrive et helt mönster ud, men jeg ville anbefale at du maaler hvor meget större du vil have den og saa med hjaelp af strikkefastheden i mönstret (antal masker per 10 cm) beregne antal masker du skal begynde med. Jeg ville nok tage ind lidt höjere og maaske 1-2 gange mere, men se undervejs hvordan det ser ud. Haaber det gaar godt. God fornöjelse med den.
