I would love to make this poncho but in a mohair type yarn. Is this possible & how would I adjust the pattern to use this type of yarn?

DROPS Design 13.11.2018 kl. 08:27:

Dear Sharon, you will find here relevant informations about yarn alternatives. If you get the same tension than the one used in the pattern, you won't have to adjust anything, but using yarns with different structures will just get different results. Happy crocheting!

Vilma 25.04.2018 - 01:48:

Fantástico que venga en español el patrón , lo malo que las abreviaturas de los puntos no los entiendo , en Chile abreviamos de otra forma el tipo de punto .Podrían ayudarme ??

Ester 21.12.2017 - 21:12:

Hallo. Wanneer moet je gaan meedere als je met patroon a1 en a2 begint. Anders blijf hij zo smal beneden

DROPS Design 29.12.2017 kl. 20:28:

Hoi Esther, In dit patroon wordt er niet gemerderd in A.1 en A.2, alleen in de 2e toer meerder je verdeeld over de toer.

Sibel 05.11.2017 - 21:12:

Hi there, I am wondering what "1 thread ”Polaris” or 2 threads "Cloud". Size: S - XXXL" means. Do those numbers refer to skeins of yarn? For all sizes? Thanks!

DROPS Design 05.11.2017 kl. 23:41:

Hi Sibel. You work with 1 thread Polaris or 2 threads Cloud. For the poncho you need 1000-1200-1300-1400-1500-1600 g POLARIS or 450-550-600-650-700-750 g CLOUD.

Audrey 29.09.2017 - 21:33:

I'm confused about which hook to use as 2 are mentioned in this pattern. 11.5mm or 12.00 mm?

DROPS Design 30.09.2017 kl. 08:02:

Hi Audrey, You are using hook size 12 mm for this pattern. Happy crocheting!

LeeAnn 20.09.2017 - 00:25:

Hello I am confused am I chaining 4 at the beginning of every row? thank you

DROPS Design 20.09.2017 kl. 08:45:

Dear LeeAnn, begin each row with 4 ch to replace 1st tr on row, as explained under CROCHET INFO. Happy crocheting!

Shari 13.02.2017 - 20:01:

Hi, What is the difference in the "Pattern A.1. and Pattern A.2." listed in the pattern? I do not see it noted anywhere else in the pattern. thanks

DROPS Design 14.02.2017 kl. 09:16:

Dear Shari, you will find the written pattern to A.1 and A.2 at the very beginning of the pattern. Happy crocheting!

Jessica 13.01.2017 - 18:06:

Bonjour je fais la gr.medium. J'ai bien lu votre commentaire mais il est tout de même difficile de sy retrouver. Au rg 2 de la 1e augmentation je comprends que je dois faire : 2DB, 2DB, 2DB et 1DB pour arriver à 49 DB ? Pour le 3e rg, 1Db, 2DB pour arriver à 70 DB ?? Merci ! POur le rang

DROPS Design 05.04.2017 kl. 11:02:

Bonjour Jessica, vous crochetez 2 DB dans chaque DB mais à 7 reprises réparties à intervalles réguliers, vous ne crochèterez qu'une seule DB au lieu de 2, vous devez avoir au total (21 x 2 DB dans la même m et 7 x 1B) = 49 B. Bon crochet!

Jessica 09.01.2017 - 00:28:

Bonjour je fais la gr.medium. Je suis débutante et j'aimerais savoir la séquence à faire pour le début au rang 2 et au rang 3. Personne est capable de m'aider! Merci!

DROPS Design 09.01.2017 kl. 09:38:

Bonjour Jessica, vous trouverez ii comment calculer où augmenter pour votre taille en fonction de votre nombre de mailles et du nombre d'augmentations à faire. Bon crochet!

Jennifer 10.09.2016 - 22:30:

I'd love to make this for my granddaughters for Christmas, however, I'm allergic to wool and can't even handle it, let alone crochet with it. I'm having trouble understanding what the US equivalent of yarn size to use. The DROPS yarn categories are A through F, and the US uses 0 (zero) through 7. Can you please help me with this?

DROPS Design 12.09.2016 kl. 08:58:

Dear Jennifer, for any individual assistance with our yarns, you are welcome to contact your DROPS store, even per mail or telephone, they'll have tips & advices for you. Happy crocheting!
