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 needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = 2 rows K.

Work stripes in garter st as follows, beg from RS:
Row 1-2: K with Cotton Viscose
Row 3-4: K with Alpaca Bouclé
Repeat row 1-4.

Piece is to be soaked and stretched to correct measurements, so cast off even though some cm remain.

Worked back and forth in garter st and sewn tog when finished.
Loosely cast on 59-67-75-82 sts with Alpaca Bouclé on circular needle size 5 mm. K 1 row (= WS). Turn piece. Then work as follows from RS: Work in GARTER ST - see explanation above, AT THE SAME TIME work STRIPES - see explanation above. When piece measures 27-32-37-41 cm, insert a marker in the piece. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Continue in garter st and with stripes back and forth until piece measures 102-116-128-136 cm in length – READ TIP! Adjust so that last stripe is in Alpaca Bouclé. Loosely cast off. Cut and fasten the yarn.

Place the piece in lukewarm water until it is soaking wet. Carefully squeeze out the water - do not twist. Then roll the piece in a towel and squeeze to remove more water - the piece will now only be moist. Place the piece on a carpet or mattress - carefully stretch it out to measurements found at the top of pattern. Leave to dry. Repeat the process when the garment has been washed.

When garment has been dried, assemble as follows - see chart:
Fold A to B so that the distance between A and D = 10 cm. Sew short side tog with one long side so that C is sewn to F, and D is sewn to E (E = marker) - see chart.

Where are ridges (garter stitch K2) placed in this pattern?

DROPS Design 19.08.2017 kl. 07:14:

Dear Elaine, all the pattern is worked in garter stitch, it means that 1 ridge = Knit 2 rows. All the time the same way. The stripes and this texture result from the use of 2 different yarns. The first ridge (2 rows K) is with Cotton Viscose, the second ridge is with Alpaca Bouclé. Happy knitting!

Stämmer verkligen garnåtgången? Låter så lite. /Carina

DROPS Design 30.03.2016 kl. 15:27:

Hej Carina, Ja men du skall ha både DROPS Alpaca Boucle OCH DROPS Cotton Viscose. Lycka till!

Anneli 24.01.2016 - 10:41:

Jag undrar hur denna poncho ser ut på ryggsidan då man har den på? Jag antar att den är rak där. Den är väl "spetsig" endast framtill?

DROPS Design 25.01.2016 kl. 14:10:

Hej. Ja det stämmer, den är inte spetsig bak, endast fram. Se gärna videon som heter "Axelvärmare - montering" under fliken videor på detta mönster så ser du. Lycka till!

Help on Drops poncho in garter st with strips. I must be reading it wrong, why do I put the marker in? Thank you, Yvonne

DROPS Design 04.08.2014 kl. 11:38:

Dear Yvonne, the marker placed after 27-41 cm (see size) shows how to sew the poncho together. "E" in diagram will be sewn together with "D" - see measurement chart. Happy knitting!

Anna 11.06.2014 - 20:43:

Potrei avere le misure in cm del modello? grazie

DROPS Design 11.06.2014 kl. 21:25:

Buonasera Anna, può trovare le misure del modello a destra della foto, sotto il titolo. Buon lavoro!!

Judith 02.05.2014 - 21:18:

Hoi weet iemand of de drops alpaca boucle prikt. Er zit nl wol in, daar ben ik normaal heel gevoelig voor.

DROPS Design 03.05.2014 kl. 11:18:

Alpaca Bouclé is echt heel zacht en prikt niet. Bovendien bevat het alpaca, geen wol, dus ook geen lanoline - het is dus zelfs geschikt voor mensen die allergisch zijn voor wol.

Cinzia 06.04.2014 - 11:08:

Chiedo scusa. Ho controllato le istruzioni e penso di aver capito l'errore, che era mio. Grazie :-)

Cinzia 03.04.2014 - 12:46:

Salve. Mi trovo a confezionare il lavoro e non mi ritrovo con l'immagine del modello. Come mai? Grazie

DROPS Design 03.04.2014 kl. 13:47:

Buongiorno Cinzia, se ci spiega cosa non le torna esattamente possiamo aiutarla in modo più preciso. Altrimenti può provare a scrivere un post nel forum DROPS allegando una foto, o può mandare una mail a italy@garnstudio.com con un foto del suo lavoro e spiegando il suo problema. Buon lavoro!
