Ik vond het een heel duidelijk patroon van de poncho! Ik moet hem nog even afwerken, maar hij lijkt heel leuk te worden!

Booties: now work 2 sts in each of the middle 2 sts (to make bootie wider at top of foot) does this mean add 2 sts in the middle? Please & thank you

Dear Sherry, you will increase in the 2 middle stitches working each of these both stitches in front of back loop - see video. Happy knitting!

Sherry 03.03.2019 - 03:12:

Pattern is VERY unclear - it seems you’ve left out quite a lot of important information! Very frustrating... I’m almost done & NEVER did it say to join & knit in the round! Wow! Please be more clear if you do another pattern please

Linda 24.02.2019 - 02:02:

I cast on the 39 sts. And did till 81/4”. I’m now at the increasing every other row. As I read on I don’t see anymore for hat yet my piece does not look like it’s going to be big enough? Please help. Ty

DROPS Design 25.02.2019 kl. 09:59:

Dear Linda, after piece measures 8 ¼” hood is finished in height - continue as explained (at the very end, you will sew together the cast on sts - see ASSEMBLY) - make sure your tension is correct, you should have 12 sts x 16 row in stockinette st = 4’’ x 4’’. Happy knitting!

Salve, sto provando a fare il poncho ma sono alle prima armi e non riesco a capire alcuni passaggi.. citando la spiegazione (Continuare a maglia rasata avanti e indietro sul ferro con 3 m a legaccio ai lati verso il centro) qui non riesco a capire a quale 3 maglie di fa riferimento,

DROPS Design 07.02.2019 kl. 23:26:

Buonasera Giovanna. Sono le prime 3 e le ultime 3 maglie sul ferro. Queste maglie vanno lavorate a legaccio. Buon lavoro!
