I find the cherry chip yarn at Micheal's , want to know what size is the cherry chip poncho with the poncho in the video?

Dear Sheri, for size, of a poncho made with teh original yarn, please refer to the diagram at the bottom of the pattern. Also do not forget, that you can always get personal help and advice from the store you bought your DROPS yarn from. Happy crafting!

I can I decrease the hood at 8in?

DROPS Design 01.07.2018 kl. 03:15:

Dear Sheri, unfortunately this modell does not have a hood, so we cannot assist you adjusting something that does not exist, If you need further assistance with the modell, please contact the yarn shop you bought your Drops yarn from. Happy Crafting!

Sheri Mckenzie 30.06.2018 - 19:38:

What kind of yarn did use ? was it cherry chip? what size poncho

DROPS Design 01.07.2018 kl. 03:12:

Dear Sheri, the original modell was crocheted from DROPS Verdi, a yarn that has been discontiniued since. Drops Melody, would be a good substiture, or two Drops Brushed alpaca held together. Happy Crochet.

Hej, Hvad er en stangmaskegruppe? Dette i forhold til at kunne gå op og ned i nålstørrelse. Med venlig hilsen Christine

DROPS Design 16.03.2018 kl. 15:39:

Hej Christine, det er 3 gange 3 stangmasker med 1 lm mellem hver gruppe (á 3 stangmaske) God fornøjelse!

Dear Mrs Mckenzie, we are unfortunately not able to adjust each our pattern to every individual request. For any further assistance you are welcome to contact your DROPS store even per mail or telephone. Happy crocheting!

Hi there Could you please advise me how I work out how many balls of yarn I need for this poncho. Many thanks Sandra (From New Zealand)

DROPS Design 03.04.2017 kl. 20:55:

Hi Sandra! The yarn from the pattern is DROPS Verdi, but it is discontinued (it was sold in balls of 350 g). You will have to substitue the yarn. How to do that, you will find HERE. Happy knitting!

Buongiorno, vorrei realizzare questo poncho, tenendolo però molto meno scollato. Come posso fare? Inizio con un numero minore di catenelle? Poi come posso procedere? grazie

DROPS Design 18.11.2016 kl. 12:15:

Buongiorno Alice, si, può iniziare con un numero minore di cat, modificando se ritiene opportuno la vestibilità sulla spalla. Buon lavoro!

Olga. Spies 01.06.2016 - 15:31:

Hallo liebes Drops Team, wird bei diesem Modell in Runden gehäckelt oder hin und zurück. Vielen dank im voraus.

DROPS Design 02.06.2016 kl. 07:27:

Liebe Olga, den Hinweis finden Sie in diesem Satz: Die Arbeit wird von oben nach unten rund gearbeitet. Es wird also in Runden gehäkelt.

Nadine 15.12.2015 - 08:50:

Hallo Super gerne würde ich diesen poncho häkeln. Allerdings mit super dicker wolle. Ich häkel mit ner 12er Nadel. Muss ich dann einfach nur die Hälfte rechnen, oder ist es dann nicht ganz so einfach?

DROPS Design 20.12.2015 kl. 11:06:

Grundsätzlich gilt, dass Sie die Anleitung mit der angegebenen Maschenprobe arbeiten sollten. Denn wenn Sie umrechnen, können sich immer andere Proportionen ergeben. In diesem Fall wäre es aber möglich, wenn Ihre Maschenprobe 1,5 Stb-Gruppen in der Breite auf 10 cm hat, die Hälfte der Lm anzuschlagen und dann den Poncho so lange zu häkeln, wie es Ihnen gefällt. Probieren Sie ihn zwischendurch immer mal wieder an. Die angeschlagene M-Zahl muss durch 5 teilbar sein.
