GARTER ST (back and forth on needle): K all rows.

Row 1: * K1, P1 *, repeat from *-*.
Row 2: K over P and P over K. Repeat row 2.

* Work all sts from bottom edge to neck, turn piece and work return row. On next row work row to first marker, turn piece and work return row – see KNITTING TIP. Work row to second marker, turn piece and work return row. Work row to third marker, turn piece and work return row. Work all sts from bottom edge to neck, turn piece and work return row *. Repeat from *-*. I.e. 1 repeat of Turns = 10 rows on sts towards bottom edge and 4 rows on sts towards neck.

When turning mid piece, slip the first st as if to K, tighten thread and work return row - to avoid hole in transition.

Worked from side to side, back and forth on circular needle and sewn tog mid back afterwards.
LOOSELY cast on 48-51-54 sts on circular needle size 5.5 mm with Alaska. Insert 3 markers (from bottom edge towards neck) in piece as follows from RS:
First marker = after 15-16-17 sts.
Second marker = after 31-33-35 sts.
Third marker = after 40-43-46 sts.
Leave the markers in piece so that the turns will all be in straight lines.
Continue as follows from RS: 6 garter sts, K2, P7-8-9, K2, 14-15-16 moss sts, K2, P7-8-9, K2 and finish with 6 garter sts towards neck.
WS: 6 garter sts, P2, K7-8-9, P2, 14-15-16 moss sts, P2, K7-8-9, P2 and finish with 6 garter sts towards bottom edge.
Continue in pattern like this, AT THE SAME TIME work TURNS - see ABOVE. Continue with turns until piece measures 132-144-156 cm from cast on row – measured at the bottom of piece where it is widest. Piece will measure approx 53-58-62 cm at the top towards neck. Cast off LOOSELY.

Sew cast on row to cast off row, edge to edge to avoid a chunky seam. The seam will sit mid back.

Place piece flat with front piece facing up and seam facing down. Insert a marker approx 6-7-8 cm from left shoulder towards mid front.
Beg by marker and pick up approx 108-112-116 sts (divisible by 4) along neck on circular needle size 5 mm with Alaska (pick up inside 1 garter st). Now pick up 6 sts behind the first 6 sts that were picked up at beg of row = approx 114-118-122 sts. K 1 row from WS, and continue back and forth on needle as follows: 6 garter sts, * K2/P2 *, repeat from *-* and finish with K2 and 6 garter sts. AT THE SAME TIME when neck measures 3, 7 and 11 cm make buttonholes on right front band as follows: Cast off 3rd garter st from edge and cast on 1 new st on return row. Continue until neck measures 14 cm and cast off loosely with K over K and P over P. Sew on buttons.

Bonjour, Pourriez-vous m'indiquer comment tricoter les 2 m end et les 7-8-9 m env quand on tricote sur l'envers ? Merci

Bonjour Mme Txix, ces mailles se tricotent comme elles se présentent, c'est-à-dire 2 m end sur l'end = 2 m env sur l'env et 7-8-9 m env sur l'end = 7-8-9 m end sur l'env. Bon tricot!

Erg leuk maar ik ben niet erg handig met de rondbreinaald, kan hij ook op 2 breinaalden gebreid worden? Vriendelijke groet, Jenny

Hoi Jenny. Het begin van de poncho wordt heen en weer gebreid op de rondbreinaald, dus dit kan ook prima op een rechte naald gebreid worden. Voor de hals kan je in plaats van rondbreien heen en weer breien. Zet dan 1 extra st op aan beide kanten voor de naad en brei verder volgens de instructie. Veel breiplezier.
