Poncho: Worked in the round on circular needle.
Cast on 276-288-306-318-336-348 sts on circular needle size 5 mm with 2 threads grey. K 1 round and P 1 round. Insert 6 Marking Threads (MT) in piece as follows: the first MT after 23-24-25-26-28-29 sts, and the next 5 with 46-48-51-53-56-58 sts between each = 23-24-26-27-28-29 sts after the last MT. Continue in stocking st and stripes – see above.
Read the following section before knitting:
when piece measures 12 cm divide the piece to create holes for arms as follows: Slip sts from beg of round to MT-1 on a stitch holder, leave sts between MT-1 and MT-3 on needle and slip remaining sts on the same stitch holder. Continue back and forth on sts on needle as before. Note! Remember stripes.
At the same time when piece measures 14-14-11-12-12-14 cm beg dec 1 st on both sides of each MT (= a total of 12 dec per full round) – see Decreasing tip – on every 10 round a total of 5-5-6-6-6-6 times, then on every 4 round 10-11-11-12-13-13 times.
When piece measues 17-17-18-18-19-19 cm from dividing the piece, slip sts on needle on another stitch holder. Slip sts from the first stitch holder back on needle and continue on these sts as before. Note! Remember stripes and dec. When you reach the other sts on stitch holder, slip all sts back on the same needle and continue in the round in stripes and with dec. When all dec are complete there are 96-96-102-102-108-120 sts on round and piece measures approx 50-52-54-56-58-60 cm. K 3 rounds, at the same time dec 20-20-24-20-26-34 sts evenly on last round = 76-76-78-82-82-86 sts. K 1 round and now change to needle size 4 mm. K 1 round, at the same time inc 12-12-10-14-14-10 sts evenly = 88-88-88-96-96-96 sts. P 1 round and continue in rib, K4/P4. Cast off loosely in rib when border measures approx 10 to 14 cm.

Border round the armholes: Pick up 80-80-88-88-96-96 sts inside 1 edge st round the armhole on needle size 4 mm with 2 threads grey. P 1 round, K 1 round and continue in rib, K4/P4 for 1 cm. Cast off. Repeat round the other armhole.
