Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
GARTER ST (back and forth on circular needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = 2 rows K.

See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

Because of the texture on the garment all length measurements must be done when the piece is held up to get the correct length measurements.

The piece is worked back and forth on circular needle because of no of sts. Worked sideways in one piece.
Loosely cast on 132-136-140-148-152-160 sts on circular needle size 6 mm with Alpaca Bouclé. Work PATTERN according to diagram A.1 with 1 edge st in GARTER ST – see explanation above, in each side until piece measures approx. 60-61-62-62-63-64 cm – stop after a row from RS. Switch to 1 thread Alpaca Bouclé. On next row (= WS), cast off the first 66-68-70-74-76-80 sts at beg of row (= left front piece), K the rest of row. Insert 1 marker and work pattern according to diagram A.2 (choose diagram for your size) with 1 edge st in garter st in each side. When A.2 has been worked 1 time vertically, piece measures approx. 10-10-10-12-12-12 cm from marker and approx. 70-71-72-74-75-76 cm from cast on edge. K 1 row from RS with Alpaca Bouclé
and loosely cast on 66-68-70-74-76-80 sts at the end of row (= right front piece) = 132-136-140-148-152-160 sts. Continue to work A.1 with 1 edge st in garter st in each side but beg from the opposite side in A.1 mid front so that the pattern is the same in each side towards mid front. When piece measures approx. 130-132-134-136-138-140 cm and the same no of stripes in pattern has been worked on each side of mid front, loosely cast off with K from WS with Alpaca Bouclé.

Work a finishing edge around the entire poncho on hook size 5 mm with Alpaca Bouclé as follows: Beg mid back or in a corner on the poncho and work 1 dc in first st, * 2 ch, skip approx. 1 cm, 1 dc in next st *, repeat from *-* around the entire poncho and finish with 2 ch and 1 sl st in first dc from beg of round.

Kann ich es auch mit einer wolle stricken? Oder müssen es 3 sein?

DROPS Design 08.07.2019 kl. 10:28:

Liebe Lena, diese 3 Wollen haben je eine unterschiedliche Textur und damit wird das Muster spielen, um das Ergebnis zu bekommen, am besten diese 3 Wollen stricken (Vivaldi können Sie durch Brushed Alpaca Silk ersetzen - siehe unseren Garnumrechner). Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Dobrý deň, ak by som chcela urobiť model Sirocco z priadze Big Delight aká by bola, prosím Vás, spotreba? Ďakujem.

DROPS Design 25.07.2018 kl. 13:49:

Milá Tatiano, na plochu odpovídající tomuto modelu byste potřebovala cca 5-6 klubek příze Big Delight. Nicméně, pokud se vám líbí právě tento model, doporučuji volbu materiálu ještě zvážit - kouzlo a lehkost tohoto ponča je v kombinaci 3 různých typů slabších přízí. Použitím jednolité, silné a navíc pruhující vlny vznikne model zcela jiného charakteru i vzhledu - je tedy potřeba s takovou změnou počítat. Příjemné tvoření! Hana

Ik heb mt L genomen (ik heb maat 38). Het afgekante gedeelte dat over de voorkant loopt is 52 cm lang en dat klopt met de beschrijving maar hij komt maar halverwege mijn buik...op het plaatje komt ie op de heupen. Had ik dan een XXXL moeten gaan breien terwijl ik maat 38 heb? Kan niet meer opnieuw beginnen want die wol is niet uit te halen. Ik baal hiervan.

Rebekka 11.07.2017 - 14:01:

Hallo, wie wird die Rück-Loch-Reihe abgestrickt? Linke Maschen? Lg

DROPS Design 11.07.2017 kl. 15:54:

Liebe Rebekka, die Rückreihe nach der mit den Löchern (2 re zs, 1 Umschlag) wird links von der Rückseite gestrikt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Ruth Jose 03.05.2016 - 21:16:

Switch to 1 strand of alpaca boucle? Where does it state to work with 2 strands?

DROPS Design 04.05.2016 kl. 08:52:

Dear Ruth Jose, you are working pattern with 1 strand Alpacé Bouclé but when piece measures 60-61-62-62-63-64 cm you continue with Alpaca Bouclé ( 1 strand) and not continue with Vivaldi/Lace. Happy knitting!

Vraag:ik ga de stola 147-39 breien en doe dat op naalden 6, nu vraag ik mij af of ik het Lace garen met dubbele draad moet breien omdat dit erg dun is.

DROPS Design 15.09.2014 kl. 14:50:

Hoi Jose. Nee, het motief in dit model is heel los. Houd de vermelde stekenverhouding aan en het komt goed. Veel breiplezier.

Lara 16.05.2013 - 12:03:

Per favore non riesco a capire quanta lana devo ordinare perchè c'è Vivaldi ma dove al uso?

DROPS Design 16.05.2013 kl. 14:24:

Buongiorno, in questo modello i filati Vivaldi e Lace vengono usati nel diagramma, trova la legenda in fondo; il filato di base è l'alpaca bouclè. Buon lavoro!

Laurie 03.04.2013 - 17:17:

Never mind. Operator error. Sorry

Laurie 03.04.2013 - 17:16:

Trying to print but no matter what I do I only get the first page.

Therese 04.03.2013 - 16:52:

Da fant jeg min egen feil! Jeg "kasta" tråden på feil side av pinnen...
