Is there any way you could make a video for the xxl/xxxl size? This would be easier for me as a beginner and I also learn visually, not so much with written instructions. I want to make this poncho for my sister's birthday coming up soon.

DROPS Design 07.08.2019 kl. 10:34:

Dear Shannyn, we have added your request to our todolist, to help you to show how to start the poncho. In the meantime, just cast on the requested number of chains, work first row as explained (you should get something like this, but in the round and not in rows) then from 2nd round you will increase for mid front and mid back as shown a href="https://www.garnstudio.com/video.php?id=635&lang=en">in this square, ie only increase on 2 places as explained in the pattern and not on 4 as shown in the square. Happy crocheting!

Zoe 23.07.2019 - 20:24:

Hi I love this patten. But as many other have come to a problem. I am doing 150 chain so how many blockes before increase?? Also how many between??

DROPS Design 06.08.2019 kl. 09:56:

Dear Zoe, with 150 chains, you should have after first round a total of 90 sts = 30 "blocks", on 2nd round (rounds start at the shoulder), work first 7 "blocks", then increase, work 14 "blocks", increase, work 7 "blocks". Happy crocheting!

Connie 15.07.2019 - 00:09:

If I am doing this in the largest size with 170 chains, do I still start the increase at 11 then the next 11? It won t be evenly spaced I don't believe.

DROPS Design 15.07.2019 kl. 11:19:

Dear Connie, you should continue increasing in the same chain-space as before, ie where you crocheted twice on the round 3 dc, 1 ch, 3 dc in the same ch-space , you will crochet in the chain between these both 3 dc groups a new increase: 3 dc, 1 ch, 3 dc. Happy crocheting!

In Runde 2 der Anfang. Muss ich die Arbeit wenden? Ansonsten sieht der Anfang sehr merkwürdig aus.. vielen Dank!

DROPS Design 11.06.2019 kl. 10:44:

Liebe Frau Dallach, es wird immer in Runden gehäkelt, aber am Ende 1. Runde sollen Sie so häkeln: mit 1 Kettm in die 3. Lm und je 1 Kettm in die ersten 2 Stb der Runde abschliessen. Die Korrektur erfolgt gleich. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Sheri Mckenzie 13.02.2019 - 02:03:

In the video on youtube that you make withe the poncho witha hood .You did not include the edeging around the neck line.Befor you add the hood.

DROPS Design 13.02.2019 kl. 09:42:

Dear Mrs Mckenzie, do you mean this pattern? When the cape part has been worked top down, you work the hood bottom up, ie crochet 1 tr in each treble worked on 1st row on cape = 52-62 sts (see size). Then continue with trebles without increasing/decreasing, fold double and sew together the top of hood. Happy crocheting!

Maryann 14.01.2019 - 18:40:

I'd like to do this for little girls ... is there a sizing chart somewhere that might help me? I'm a beginner. ::sigh::

DROPS Design 15.01.2019 kl. 09:00:

Dear Maryann, there is only total height to this pattern, but you can calculate to adjust the pattern from the gauge in the pattern and the desired measurements. For any assistance adapting the pattern please contact the store where you bought your yarn. Happy crocheting!

Sheri Mckenzie 05.07.2018 - 17:39:

In your videos raspberry smoothies. You didn't show how you did the edging around the neckline .But get it in th written pattern.

Sheri Mckenzie 01.07.2018 - 23:59:

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?

DROPS Design 02.07.2018 kl. 02:08:

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!

Sheri Mckenzie 30.06.2018 - 19:41:

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.
