PONCHO:
Worked in the round on circular needle from bottom up - READ MEASURING TIP.
Cast on 194-202-218-226-234-258 sts on circular needle size 9 mm / US 13 with Eskimo. K 1 round. Work next round as follows: Work diagram A.1 (choose diagram for your size = 39-39-39-39-43-43 sts), * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-* over the next 56-60-68-72-72-84 sts, K 2, diagram A.1 (= 39-39-39-39-43-43 sts), * K 2, P 2 *, repeat from *-* until 2 sts remain and finish with K 2.
When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically there are now 214-222-238-246-254-278 sts on needle and piece measures approx. 4 cm / 1½''.
Now insert 4 markers in the piece as follows: Insert 1st marker at beg of round, 2nd marker after 49-49-49-49-53-53 sts (i.e. after A.1 on back piece), insert 3rd marker after another 58-62-70-74-74-86 sts (i.e. before A.1 on front piece) and insert 4th marker after another 49-49-49-49-53-53 sts (i.e. after A.1 on front piece) = 58-62-70-74-74-86 sts after last marker.
READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING SECTION BEFORE CONTINUING:
Then work as follows: Work diagram A.2 (= 16 sts), P 17-17-17-17-21-21, diagram A.3 (= 16 sts), diagram A.4 over the next 58-62-70-74-74-86 sts, diagram A.2 (= 16 sts), P 17-17-17-17-21-21, diagram A.3 (= 16 sts) and diagram A.4 over the last 58-62-70-74-74-86 sts on round.
AT THE SAME TIME on 2nd round with A.2 and A.3, dec 1 st after 2nd and 4th marker and 1 st before 3rd and 1st marker – READ DECREASE TIP 1 (= 4 sts dec). Repeat dec every 6th round, 11-11-10-10-11-9 more times and then every other round a total of 14-16-21-23-22-30 times (i.e. that section with A.4 in each side gets smaller and smaller – NOTE: When dec the pattern will not fit in the sides the entire way but make sure that the pattern fits otherwise.
AT THE SAME TIME when A.2 and A.3 have been worked 1 time vertically, work next round as follows: Work diagram A.5 instead of A.2 (= 16 sts), P 2-2-2-2-4-4, A.7 (= 13 sts), P 2-2-2-2-4-4, diagram A.6 instead of A.3 (= 16 sts), diagram A.4 until 3rd marker, diagram A.5 (= 16 sts), P 2-2-2-2-4-4, A.7 (= 13 sts), P 2-2-2-2-4-4, diagram A.6 (= 16 sts) and diagram A.4 over the last sts on round. Continue pattern like this.
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 43-43-44-45-46-47 cm / 17"-17"-17 1/4"-17 3/4"-18"-18½", insert 1 marker on each side of the middle 17-17-17-17-21-21 sts at the front and back, i.e. on each side of section with P sts and bobbles. Now dec 1 st on each side of this section – READ DECREASE TIP 2 (= 4 sts dec). Repeat dec every 4th round 5-5-5-5-7-7 more times (i.e. that middle section with P sts and bobbles mid front and mid back gets smaller and smaller).
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 48-49-50-51-52-53 cm / 19''-19¼''-19¾''-20''-20½''-21'', dec all 2 P sts in diagram A.5 and A.6 to 1 P st (P sts tog).
AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures approx. 50-52-54-56-58-60 cm / 19 3/4''-20½''-21¼''-22''-22¾''-23 5/8'' - make sure that next round is 1st-3rd-5th or 7th round in A.5/A.6 (last bobble in diagram A.7 should now be done, i.e. that when diagram A.7 has been worked 3 times vertically, continue in reverse stockinette st (seen from RS) over the middle sts in "berry pattern") - inc 1 st in the middle P st at mid front on poncho by P 2 sts in front and back loop of 1 st.
Then work 2 ridges in GARTER ST – see explanation above, over the middle 6 sts mid front (work the other sts as before). On next round after the 2 ridges, divide the piece mid front for neck vent and work back and forth on needle until finished measurements. NOTE: Work 1st row from RS and continue pattern as before but work the outermost 3 sts in each side in garter st.
Continue to work until piece measures approx. 59-61-63-65-67-69 cm / 23¼''-24''-24¾''-25½''-26 3/8''-27 1/8''.
On next row from RS, K sts in the 2 cables in A.5 twisted tog 2 by 2 (= 4 sts dec) and K sts in the 2 cables in A.6 tog 2 by 2 (= 4 sts dec), in addition dec 12-12-10-10-8-8 sts evenly over the other sts (do not dec over the 3 sts in garter st in each side).
After all dec are done, 47-47-49-49-51-51 sts remain on needle. K 1 row from WS.

HOOD:
Worked back and forth on circular needle from vent mid front. K 1 row from RS while AT THE SAME TIME inc 5-5-3-7-5-9 sts evenly (do not inc over the 3 sts in garter st in each side) = 52-52-52-56-56-60 sts.
Then work pattern according to diagram A.4 with 3 sts in garter st in each side towards mid front until hood measures approx. 34-34-36-36-38-38 cm / 13½"-13½"-14 1/4"-14 1/4"-15"-15". Loosely bind off.

Goedemorgen, Ik ben gestart met dit patroon maar wat ik niet goed begrijp is, dat ik als ik maat M wil breien, 202 steken moet opzetten en na 5 naalden, er 222 steken op de naald overblijven. Er staat nergens vermeld in het patroon dat er moet gemeerderd worden. Dus ik veronderstel dat er elke naald, 4 steken moeten gemeerderd worden?

DROPS Design 07.03.2019 kl. 20:36:

Dag Ellen,

Je breit telpatroon A.1 en daar zijn meerderingen in verwerkt. Dit is het symbool met de zwarte bolletjes (brei 2 steken in dezelfde steek)

Federica Piga 23.03.2018 - 10:42:

Salve, mi piacerebbe fare questo modello ma senza il motivo centrale. è possibile farlo? oppure bisogna rielaborare il modello? grazie

YM 10.07.2017 - 06:21:

Bonjour. Je suis entrain de réaliser ce modèle. Je suis presque rendue à la fin en longueur totale. Le problème est que toutes les diminutions 1 avavt et après les deux sections laterales en A.4 ne sont pas faites. Que pourrais-je faire pour bien commencer le capuchon?

DROPS Design 10.07.2017 kl. 10:02:

Bonjour Mme Ym, pensez à bien conserver la même tension que pour l'échantillon pour que les mesures en hauteur soient juste, sinon il vous faudra ajuster en fonction de votre taille et de la longueur souhaitée. Bon tricot!

Elixandra 27.05.2017 - 16:14:

Bonjour, Pour les deux premiers icônes dans la légende des diagrammes, (à savoir "1 m end sur l'end, env sur l'env" et 1 m env sur l'end, end sur l'env"), nous avons besoin de savoir si nous sommes sur un rang endroit ou envers, comment le sait-on en tricotant en rond avec des aiguilles circulaires? Peut-être j'interprète mal la légende? Merci pour votre aide.

DROPS Design 29.05.2017 kl. 09:07:

Bonjour Elixandra, le poncho se tricote d'abord en rond, puis en allers et retours pour créer la fente d'encolure. Jusqu'à cette fente, vous tricotez sur l'endroit, quand vous diviserez l'ouvrage pour l'encolure, veillez à ajuster pour que les torsades soient toujours sur l'endroit. Bon tricot!

Nghia 28.10.2016 - 22:43:

I struggle to understand the instructions to do the neck vent (to divide the piece) on a circular needle. Perhaps I misunderstand. Please help as I am completely lost.

DROPS Design 31.10.2016 kl. 09:16:

Dear Nghia, when you have inc in the mid front, work 4 rows in garter st over the 6 sts on mid front only (work remaining sts as before for these 4 rows) - adjust so that the RS rows will be the ones with the cables. Then divide piece from RS working first the last 3 sts in garter st, then all sts around until the last 3 sts in garter st, turn and work next row from WS. Continue then back and forth on needle in pattern as before. Happy knitting!

Brenda 09.07.2016 - 20:37:

I am allergic to wool. Is there any other wool you have there I can substitute? Thanks

DROPS Design 11.07.2016 kl. 09:14:

Dear Brenda, please read more here about alternatives and remember your DROPS Store will help you with personnal tips & advices. Happy knitting!

Brenda 09.07.2016 - 20:28:

I want to make a few of your patterns but I find it hard to figure how much wool to get. Can you please put it in yards. Or how many balls to buy. I am afraid I can not figure it out. Please and thanks in advance Brenda

DROPS Design 11.07.2016 kl. 09:11:

Dear Brenda, you will find total weight of yarn required for each size in our patterns under tab "materials", ie for size S you require 750 g Eskimo for the poncho / 50 g a ball Eskimo (read more here about this yarn) = 15 balls Eskimo are required in size S. Happy knitting!

Shirley In Canada 30.01.2016 - 17:52:

Can this be made with a slightly smaller yarn and needle? I want to make this for my daughter and her girls as gifts for Christmas.

DROPS Design 01.02.2016 kl. 09:30:

Dear Shirley, this pattern is worked with a tension of 10 sts x 18 rows with diagram A.4 = 10 x 10 cm - you will have to adjust & adapt the explanation to your own tension with the help of measurement chart at the end of the page. Or look for a pattern using the tension you have. Happy knitting!

Maria 17.09.2015 - 15:27:

Can the poncho be knitted in four parts without the circular needles that is with regular needles.

DROPS Design 17.09.2015 kl. 18:07:

Dear Maria, please find here some informations about adapting a pattern for circular needle into straight needles. Remember you can also get tips & advices from your DROPS store. Happy knitting!

Liesbeth 06.08.2015 - 00:11:

Er staat bij de uitleg van het telpatroon = recht aan de goede kant, averecht aan de verkeerde kant. En ook omgekeerd. Hoe weet ik nu wanneer ik aan de goede of de verkeerde kant bezig ben als ik rondbrei?

DROPS Design 06.08.2015 kl. 11:51:

Hoi Liesbeth. Als je in de rondte breit, dan is elke naald op de goede kant. Dus elke rij is dan de goede kant en je leest van rechts naar links. Kijk ook hier hoe je onze telpatronen moet lezen
