Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
Knitting tension: Remember needle size is only a guide
Eskimo:
10 stitches x 14 rows with needle size 9 mm and stocking stitch = 10 x 10 cm
Vienna /Melody:
8 stitches x 10 rows with needle size 12 mm and stocking stitch = 10 x 10 cm

Rib: * K4, P3 *, repeat from *-*.

Ridge/garter stitch (in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

Increase tip (for increases front and back): Increase by making 1 yarn over on each side of the middle 4 stitches (in Size XL/XXL increase on each side of the middle 3 stitches) mid front and back.
Poncho: The poncho is worked in the round from neck down. Loosely cast on 98-105-112-119 stitches with circular needle size 9 mm and Eskimo. Purl 1 round, then work rib - see description above. When piece measures 13-14-15-16 cm decrease all K4 to K3 = 84-90-96-102 stitches. Continue working until piece measures 26-28-30-32 cm, then work 1 ridge. Change to circular needle size 12 mm and Vienna or Melody and work stocking stitch at the same time as you adjust the number of stitches to 68-72-76-82 stitches on first round after ridge. On the next round insert 4 marker threads in the piece as follows: * 1 marker thread (= shoulder), 17-18-19-20 stitches, 1 marker thread (= mid front/back) - in Size XL/XXL insert this marker thread in the 21st stitch, 17-18-19-20 stitches *, repeat from *-*. The piece is now measured from here. Remember the knitting tension!

Read the whole of the next section before continuing! 

Increase mid front and mid back: Continue with stocking stitch at the same time as you increase every 4th round - see Increase tip: 1 stitch a total of 21-22-23-24 times.
Increase to shoulder: At the same time, increase on each shoulder (alternately after and before the marker thread) every 2nd round: 1 stitch a total of 3 times.
Side decrease: At the same time, when piece measures 9-7-6-5 cm decrease in each side (alternately before and after the marker thread) every 9-7-6-5 cm: 1 stitch a total of 5-7-9-11 times.
After all increases and decreases there are 148-152-156-162 stitches on needle. The poncho measures approx. 59-62-65-68 cm from the neck and down along shoulder and approx. 74-78-81-85 cm from neck and down mid front. Finish with 1 ridge before loosely casting off - NOTE: So the tip does not curl, work 2 stitches in the 2 stitches mid front (in size XL work 2 stitches in the 2 stitches on each side of the mid stitch) at the same time as casting off.


Crochet flowers: Work 3 flowers to decorate the poncho.
Large flower: Work 4 chain stitches with hook size 3 mm and off white Cotton Viscose and form them into a ring with 1 slip stitch.

Round 6: 1 chain stitch, then work as follows in all chain-spaces: * 1 double crochet, 6 treble crochets, 1 double crochet *, and finish with 1 slip stitch in first double crochet at beginning of round. Cut and fasten strand.

Round 1: 1 double crochet around the ring, * 5 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around the ring *, repeat from *-* a total of 15 times (chain-spaces should be close to each other) and finish with 5 chain stitches and 1 slip stitch in first double crochet at beginning of round = 16 chain-spaces.

Work 5 chain stitches and form them into a ring with 1 slip stitch.

Hallo! Könnten Sie mir diesen wunderschönen Poncho auch fertig gestrickt liefern? Bin leider absolut unfähig was stricken angeht. Viele Grüße Yvonne Krause

Monica 20.03.2019 - 22:30:

Mi sono avvicinata alla maglieria dopo tanti anni e nel vostro sito ho trovato dei suggerimenti interessanti. Grazie

Monica 20.03.2019 - 22:29:

Ciao, sto cercando di realizzare questo bellissimo poncho, ma non capisco bene gli aumenti. Devo aumentare sempre prima e dopo il marcatore sulle spalle? E sul davanti devo aumentare solo una maglia alla volta? Grazie se mi risponderete. Monica .

DROPS Design 21.03.2019 kl. 08:29:

Buongiorno Monica. Sulle spalle alterna gli aumenti una volta prima e una volta dopo il marcatore. Al centro sul davanti e sul dietro, aumenta facendo 1 maglia gettata prima delle 4 maglie centrali (3 maglie centrali per la taglia più grande) e 1 maglia gettata dopo le 4 maglie centrali (3 maglie centrali nella taglia più grande). Buon lavoro!

Lucinda 19.03.2019 - 23:10:

Thank you so much for your assistance. :)

Lucinda 19.03.2019 - 04:37:

Hello, Just about to finish. Will I purl the last row except for knitting the two stitches in the centre stitches and then next row cast off in knit stitches or purl please? Lucinda.

DROPS Design 19.03.2019 kl. 10:37:

Dear Lucinda, you first purl one row over all sts (including the middle sts), then cast off on next row by knitting all sts (just knit the 2 middle sts twice while casting off). Happy knitting!

Lucinda 28.10.2018 - 07:22:

Thank you. When I increase for the centre front and centre back do I increase before the centre 4 stitches then knit 4 and increase after them, giving 6 stitches? On the shoulder increase is it increase before each shoulder marker in one row and in the second row after that increase after each shoulder marker?

DROPS Design 29.10.2018 kl. 00:30:

Dear Lucinda, you should always increase before and after the 4 stitch (not six, or more). As for the shoulder, you are right, at one time you should increase before the markers, and the next time after them. Happy Knitting!

Lucinda 18.10.2018 - 05:48:

Hello, How many 50 g balls of Melody yarn are needed for the poncho please? The pattern says 200 g for the M size but that doesn't seem much.Thanks, Lucinda.

DROPS Design 18.10.2018 kl. 07:42:

Dear Lucinda, the amount given in the pattern is corect. Do not forget that the Melody yarn is extremely light, and there is about 140 meters in one ball. I hope this helps. Happy Crafting!

Kimberlee 17.10.2017 - 01:01:

I want this but I don't crochet or knit ! What would be a good price for me to offer someone to make this for me ? I know there is a lot of time and materials !

DROPS Design 17.10.2017 kl. 09:30:

Dear Kimberlee, we only provide free patterns to knit and crochet, you are welcome to contact your DROPS store to ask them if they can help you there.

Daniela 31.03.2017 - 13:45:

Hallo! Und zwar habe ich eine Frage. Ich verstehe das leider mit den Zunehmen vorne und hinten nicht so ganz: Es wird aufgenommen indem man auf beiden Seiten der mittleren 4 M. (vorne und hinten) je 1 Umschlag macht. Heißt das das man bei jeden der 4 Maschen 1 Umschlag macht, vorne und hinten? Also 8 Zunahmen in der Runde? Weil am Ende soll man ja bloß auf ca 150 Maschen kommen und wenn man da 23 mal 8 Maschen zunimmt erscheint mir das viel zu viel.... Vielen Dank schon mal.

DROPS Design 31.03.2017 kl. 15:11:

Liebe Daniela, Es gibt 2 verschiedenen Zunahmen: am Vorder- und Rückenteil nehmen Sie 21-24 M zu (= siehe Tipp zum Aufnehmen = 4 Zunahmen pro Zunahmenrunde) und gleichzeitig solle Sie auch an den Schultern bei jeder 2. Reihe 1 M 3 x zunehmen (= 2 Zunahmen pro Zunahmenrunde, 1 an jedem Schulter). Und dann nach 9-5 cm, 1 M auf beiden Seiten 5-11 x abnehmen (= 2 Abnahmen) Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Saint-yves 22.03.2017 - 14:38:

Bonjour je suis en train de réaliser se modèle mais je ne comprends pas pour les augmentations et diminutions est ce qu'il faut faire les augmentations du devant et du dos puis des épaules et ensuite les diminutions ? Je suis un peu perdu merci de me repondre

DROPS Design 22.03.2017 kl. 17:34:

Bonjour Mme Saint-Yves, vous augmentez au milieu dos et au milieu devant 21-24 (cf taille) x tous les 3 rangs, en même temps, vous augmentez aux marqueurs 3 x tous les 2 rangs, puis à 9-5 cm, vous diminuez 1 m aux marqueurs. Bon tricot!
