Can this pattern be knitted on ordinary needles, I hate knitting on circular needle. thank you

DROPS Design 04.03.2018 kl. 21:51:

Dear Joan, de hood part of the poncso is knitted back and forth, but the body is done on the round. It is possible to knit it flat, but then you have to add edge stitches on both side and sew the piece together at the end. Happy Knitting!

Sally Snyder 26.02.2018 - 23:02:

Could you possibly show a picture of the BACK of the poncho please?

DROPS Design 27.02.2018 kl. 08:54:

Dear Mrs Snyder, we unfortunately do not have any picture from the back of piece, which looks like as the front piece (except the vent on mid front). You can see here pictures from the finished items worked by our users. Happy knitting!

Orly 16.01.2018 - 17:58:

I don't understand the meanning of "K 1 raw from RS, at the same time" and "K 1 row from WS" What is RS and WS??

DROPS Design 17.01.2018 kl. 08:23:

Dear Mrs Orly, RS is right side of piece and WS is wrong side of piece (= inside poncho, back of work). Happy knitting!

Conny Rojas 16.01.2018 - 01:14:

Que tal, Muy hermosa la capita, quisiera saber si tienen algún vídeo completo de como hacerla? apenas estoy aprendiendo a tejer, gracias y saludos desde México

DROPS Design 19.01.2018 kl. 20:13:

Hola Conny. Todos los vídeos que te pueden ayudar en la realización del patrón los puedes encontrar al final de la página, pero no hay vídeos con toda la explicación de cómo realizar esta prenda.

Vanessa Schnautz 08.12.2017 - 22:24:

I'm using the 6/9 month size. When I place the 4 markers and increase 17 times to get 108 stitches - the markers get farther and farther away. Do I look up and increase roughly rear the markers - or do I take the 4 markers off the row that I first put them on, and put them on each of the 17 rows that I am increasing? Thank you.

DROPS Design 09.12.2017 kl. 10:44:

Dear Vanessa, since the poncho is knitted from the top down, the number of stitches between markers should increase, thus the markers should actually get further and firther away from each other. You don't have to rearrange them. I hope this helps. Happy knitting!

Graziella Tomasello 25.10.2017 - 15:53:

Non coincide il numero delle maglie tra i marcapunti dal cappuccio in giù della cappa poncho, ci sarà un errore nelle spiegazioni? Grazie

DROPS Design 25.10.2017 kl. 22:35:

Buonasera Graziella, non ci sono errori nella spiegazione: questo modello è stato lavorato moltissime volte. Se ci spiega esattamente il suo problema possiamo aiutarla in modo più specifico. Buon lavoro!

Kathleen 21.10.2017 - 08:14:

What is the yarn name and colour for the poncho It doest look like the pale pink #20 as advised looks more like old pink #09 Thank you so much

DROPS Design 21.10.2017 kl. 22:50:

Dear Kathleen, the pattern is knit with no30, rose (pink) colored Eskimo yarn. There are many reasons you see it differently, including the fact that every dye batch is slightly different, and the colorshade might have been changed. But why not knit the item in the color you prefer the best, even if it is not what is suggested? The most important thing is that you love the finished item. Happy Knitting!

Lusignan 21.10.2017 - 00:47:

Bonsoir. Je tricote le poncho et je suis bloquée... je suis au moment où il faut commencer à tricoter en rond et je viens de finir un rang envers. Du coup mon premier rang est endroit et vu qu’il faut du jersey je poursuis endroit ( avec les circulaires). Je me retrouve avec un changement de formes de mailles comme si je tricotais du point mousse.. je ne comprends pas. Merci pour votre réponse.

DROPS Design 23.10.2017 kl. 09:25:

Bonjour Madame Lusignan, continuer en rond sur l'aiguille circulaire sur l'endroit: après votre dernier rang sur l'envers, tournez pour tricoter le rang suivant sur l'endroit, et, à la fin de ce rang, placez un marqueur (début du tour) et tricotez maintenant la 1ère maille du tour (n'oubliez pas les m au point mousse). Pour tricoter du jersey endroit en rond, tricotez toutes les mailles à l'endroit, tous les tours (cf vidéo ci-dessous). Bon tricot!

Shari 12.10.2017 - 02:23:

Thank you for your answer. One more question, I finished my increase to the 114 stitches, one round stockinette st, now the moss stitch. It’s an even number. How can I do the moss stitch with even number of stitches. I am ending with a pearl and need to start with a pearl.. what am I missing?

DROPS Design 12.10.2017 kl. 09:16:

Dear Shari, this is due to the even number of sts but shouldn't be that visible, you may adjust your st number to an uneven number of sts dec or inc 1 st evenly if you rather want to work over an uneven number of sts. Happy knitting!

Shari Whitney 08.10.2017 - 23:20:

I am unsure when to start working the poncho in the round. I just finished placing the markers and knit 1 row from WS. Do I continue increased rows going back and forth until I reach 3 1/2” then start in the round?

DROPS Design 09.10.2017 kl. 09:26:

Dear Mrs Whitney, continue working back and forth and increasing until piece measures 3½" then from these 3½" work now in the round continue increasing as before. Happy knitting!
