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.
Crochet pattern: See diagram M.1 – diagram shows 2 repeats of pattern.
Beg on second row on the right side of diagram, and then work 13-14-15-16 repeats across the row and finish with the sts on the left side of diagram (outside the box).
Note: On round 2 in the first 2 vertical fan-patterns and on round 3 in the last 2 vertical fan-patterns and on round 7 in all vertical fan-patterns, work ch until pattern repeat starts.
Crochet info: Replace first dc on round with 1 ch and replace first tr with 3 ch. Finish each round with 1 sl st in first dc/tr from beg of round.

Poncho: Knitted and crochet from the top down.
Neck: Loosely cast on 84-90-96-102 sts on small circular needle size 4 mm with 2 threads Alpaca. Work rib, K2/P4 for 10 cm. Cast off loosely.
Yoke: With 2 threads Alpaca and crochet hook size 5 mm crochet 1 dc in each st on cast off row = 84-90-96-102 dc
Work next round as follows: 3 ch (replaces 1 tr), * 1 ch, 1 tr in next dc *, repeat from *-*, and finish round with 1 ch and 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 84-90-96-102 tr on round. Now continue in M.1 – see explanation above (= 14-15-16-17 repeats across the round) – see Crochet info! After 1 vertical repeat of diagram (= 4 vertical fan patterns) work fan pattern 4 again, but only work to row marked with an arrow in diagram. Cut the thread and fasten. The crochet part measures approx 35 cm.

Skirt: Worked in the round on circular needle from the waist/top down.
Cast on 120-144-174-204 sts on needle size 4 mm with 2 threads Alpaca. Work rib, K2/P4, until piece measures 24-26-28-30 cm. Remember the knitting tension!
On next round inc every other P-section to P5 – inc in the first P st by picking up st from previous round and P this. Continue in rib. When piece measures 29-31-33-35 cm inc the remaining P-sections to P5 in the same way = 140-168-203-238 sts. Continue in rib, K2/P5. When piece measures 34-36-38-40 cm inc every other P-section to P6 – inc in the last P st by picking up st from previous round and P this. Continue in rib. When piece measures 39-41-43-45 cm inc the remaining P-sections to P6 in the same way = 160-192-232-272 sts. Continue in rib, K2/P6. When piece measures 44-46-48-50 cm cast off loosely in rib.
To make the skirt stay up under your chest, thread a thin elastic ribbon up and down in cast on row.
