----------------------------------------------------------

BACK PIECE:
Worked back and forth on circular needle.
Cast on 108-112-118-122 sts on circular needle size 6 mm with 1 strand of each yarn (= 2 strands). Work 3 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above.
Switch to circular needle size 7 mm and work next row from RS as follows: Work 4 sts in garter st, K 3, P 3, 88-92-98-102 sts in stocking st, AT THE SAME TIME inc 12 sts by working 2 sts in each of the first 6 sts and 2 sts in each of the last 6 sts in stocking st (= 12 sts inc), P 3, K 3, 4 sts in garter st = 120-124-130-134 sts in total on needle.
Work 1 row as follows from WS: 4 sts in garter st, P 3, K 3, 100-104-110-114 sts in stocking st, K 3, P 3, 4 sts in garter st.
On next row from RS work as follows: Work A.1 (= 22 sts), work 76-80-86-90 sts in stocking st and work A.2 (= 22 sts).
Continue pattern like this, i.e. on every other row the section in stocking st in the middle gets smaller while A.1 and A.2 get bigger – no of sts does not vary. When A.1 and A.2 have been plaited 10-11-11-12 times in total vertically in each side, continue A.1 and A.2 without YOs and cable (work sts over cable in stocking st).
When piece measures 53-56-59-62 cm, cast off the middle 16-18-18-20 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately. Continue to cast off 1 st on the next row towards the neckline = 51-52-55-56 sts remain on each shoulder. Continue until piece measures 55-58-61-64 cm and cast off. Repeat on the other shoulder.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 59-61-64-66 sts (incl 5 band sts towards mid front) on circular needle size 6 mm with 1 strand of each yarn. Work 3 ridges in garter st. Switch to circular needle size 7 mm and
work as follows from RS: 5 band sts in garter st, work 44-46-49-51 sts in stocking st, AT THE SAME TIME inc 6 sts by working 2 sts in each of the last 6 sts in stocking st (= 6 sts inc), P 3, K 3, 4 sts in garter st = 65-67-70-72 sts in total on needle. Work 1 row as follows from WS: 4 sts in garter st, P 3, K 3, 50-52-55-57 sts in stocking st, 5 band sts in garter st.
On next row from RS work as follows: 5 band sts in garter st, 38-40-43-45 sts in stocking st and then pattern according to diagram A.2 (= 22 sts).
Continue pattern like this, i.e. section in stocking st towards mid front gets smaller while A.2 gets bigger (no of sts does not vary). Remember BUTTONHOLES on band - see explanation above. NOTE: When A.2 have been plaited 9-10-10-11 times in total vertically, continue A.2 without cable (work sts over cable in stocking st). AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures approx. 47-50-52-55 cm (adjust so that 1 row has been worked after last buttonhole and plaiting in A.2 has been finished), slip the first 10-11-11-12 sts towards mid front on 1 stitch holder for neck (work sts before slipping them on stitch holder to avoid cutting the yarn in piece). Then cast off at beg of every row from neck: 2 sts 1 time and 1 st 2 times = 51-52-55-56 sts remain on shoulder. Continue until piece measures 55-58-61-64 cm - adjust according to back piece, cast off.

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
Cast on and work as right but reversed. Work pattern according to diagram A.1 instead of A.2.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the shoulder seams. Sew 2 decorative buttons at the bottom of edge in garter st, 3 and 9 cm from edge in each side (sew through both layers so that front and back piece is tog at the edge in each side at the bottom of garment).

NECK EDGE:
Pick up approx. 60 to 70 sts from RS around the neck (incl sts on stitch holders mid front) with 1 strand of each yarn on circular needle size 6 mm. Work 3 ridges in garter st back and forth. Loosely cast off with K from WS.

This pattern has been corrected. .

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:...NOTE: When A.2 have been plaited 9-10-10-11 times in total vertically, continue A.2 without YOs (work sts over cable in stocking st)...

Buon pomeriggio mi interesserebbe sapere se questo modello posso farlo piu lungo quasi a voler coprire il bacino.grazie anticipatamente.buona domenica

DROPS Design 17.09.2017 kl. 19:16:

Buongiorno Deborah, può sicuramente farlo più lungo, tenga presente che il lavoro parte dal basso, quindi tenga conto della lunghezza effettiva indicata nello schema delle misure per riproporzionare il modello. Buon lavoro!

Michela 17.09.2017 - 13:05:

Salve x esempio per essere a maniche a lunghezza normale quanto dovrei aumentare?sto facendo una l.e un altra cosa:il lavoro comunque rimane posizionato nello schema stabilito vero? Grazie mille e scusate.buon pomeriggio

DROPS Design 17.09.2017 kl. 13:38:

Buongiorno Michela. Ci risulta difficile dare un aiuto così dettagliato. Può scegliere anche di aumentare gradualmente fino alla lunghezza necessaria. Le maglie in più delle maniche vanno lavorate seguendo la prima parte del diagramma A1 (prima del gettato) e l'ultima parte di A2 (dopo il gettato). Per un aiuto più specifico, può contattare il suo rivenditore Drops di fiducia. Buon lavoro!

Michela 17.09.2017 - 11:10:

Buon giorno vorrei sapere se è possibile farlo con maniche piu lunghe.grazie buona domenica

DROPS Design 17.09.2017 kl. 12:36:

Buongiorno Michela. Per allungare le maniche, nelle istruzioni dove dice di lavorare 2 maglie in ognuna delle prime 6 e delle ultime 6 maglie, aumenta un numero maggiore di maglie. Buon lavoro!

What is the purpose of using the nepal yarn with kid silk? Can you just use the nepal?

DROPS Design 06.10.2016 kl. 10:12:

Dear Mrs Hein, Kid-Silk will bring some mohair and silk to this project, using only Nepal will affect the tension. Read more about alternatives here. Happy knitting!

Gill 29.04.2016 - 17:26:

In the back piece instructions, in relation to the cable part, you state " slip 8 sts on cable needle behind piece (which I understand), k4, then k the 8sts from cable needle twisted tog 2 by 2" and it is this last part that I do not understand. Please will you advise? Thank you.

DROPS Design 29.04.2016 kl. 19:12:

Dear Gill, this mean you will dec the sts from cable needle working them tog 2 by 2, ie the 8 sts will be dec to 4 sts (K2 tog a total of 4 times over the 8 sts = 4 sts remain). Happy knitting!

Marianne Jacobs 09.04.2016 - 11:46:

Ben een ervaren breister. Volgens het patroon staan zowel de heen-als teruggaande toer op het telpatroon. Zo gedaan had ik na 6 (in plaats van 11) kabels en een hoogte van 23cm het aantal te minderen steken voor de hals over..Heb vervolgens iedere teruggaande naald gebreid zoals de steken zich voordeden (behalve de ribbels aan de zijkant) en dan klopt het wel. Alleen liggen mijn gaatjes en kabels dan verder uit elkaar. Graag informatie hierover.

Emilia Buesing 22.02.2016 - 10:43:

Hallo, laut Diagramm fängt man mit dem erste Zopf in der dritte Reihe. Nach zwei Umschläge werden vier M abgenommen (pro Zopf). Am Ende bleiben bei dem Rückenteil 116 M statt 120. Ich musste nach dem zehnten Zopf zwei zusätzlichen Umschläge stricken. Soll man mit dem erste Zopf in der fünfte Reihe anfangen? Vielen Dank!!

DROPS Design 02.03.2016 kl. 16:59:

Liebe Emilia, ich denke das Diagramm ist richtig: bis zur 3. Reihe haben Sie bereits 2 Umschläge gemacht (in der 1. und in der 3. R), die die 2 zusammengestrickten Maschen ausgleichen.

Nyllie 13.02.2016 - 21:12:

If I stop yarn overs after the tenth (10th) cable I will be left with only 112 stitches. In order (when I reach 53 cm) to be able to cast of middle 16 and cast of one toward neckline on each side and have 51 stitches left for each shoulder that's 51+ 51+ 1+1+16= 120 stitches so I must continue yarn overs till I search the next cable and not do that cable.....is this correct?

DROPS Design 15.02.2016 kl. 10:38:

Dear Nyllie, you have to get the 120 sts in first size, adjust pattern to get the correct number of sts at 53 cm. Happy knitting!

Sue 11.02.2016 - 04:34:

When completing back piece, the pattern states to complete cable (10 times for my size) on each side. The chart only shows 4 cables on each side. My question is when continuing on do you begin at bottom of chart each repeat( after the 32 rows showmen in chart) or continue so side sections get larger still and middle gets smaller?

DROPS Design 11.02.2016 kl. 10:48:

Dear Sue, you continue diagrams so that the section in stocking st in the mid (between 2 cables) gets smaller and the sections on the sides becomes larger. Happy knitting!

E. Müller 12.01.2016 - 20:16:

Hallo , stricke gerade den Poncho in Nepal und Kid-Silk mit Zöpfen.In der Anleitung steht das ich nach A1 u. A2 die Zöpfe 10x drehen muß, beim Diagramm A1 u. A2 wird doch nur 4x gedreht.Wie geht es nun Weiter ? Vielen Dank im Vorraus für ihre Hilfe, MfG E. Müller

DROPS Design 09.02.2016 kl. 18:31:

Es soll bedeuten, dass Sie die Diagramme mustergemäß so weiterstricken, bis Sie 10 Verzopfungen gemacht haben. Sie machen die Zunahmen in A.1 und A.2 dabei wie zuvor weiter (und stricken entsprechend weniger M glatt re, sodass die M-Zahl immer gleich bleibt).
