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.
When switching ball with Polaris, split the old strand in two on the last 15 cm – cut off one part, do the same on the new strand. Place the first and last 15 cm on top of each other so that the yarn is the normal thickness and continue to work – this is done to make the strand switch invisible in the yarn.

See diagram A.1. The diagram shows all rows in pattern seen from RS.

Inc 8 sts on round.
Work until 1 st before marker, 1 YO, K 2, 1 YO. Repeat at the remaining 3 markers on round. On next round K YO twisted (i.e. work in back loop of st instead of front) to avoid holes.

Gentilmente non mi sono chiare le diminuzioni se potete darmi un ulteriore chiarimento grazie quante maglie in tutto..

DROPS Design 25.04.2019 kl. 09:38:

Buongiorno Lilla, in merito alle diminuzioni, ad esempio per la taglia S/M, quando il lavoro misura 27 cm deve diminuire 2 maglie lavorando 2 maglie insieme a diritto ad intervalli regolari. Buon lavoro!

When I am doing pattering A-1 do I knit for one row and then next row knit 3 and do the y/o etc and then knit 3 all around that round and then knit a round.\r\n\r\nI hope you understand my question

DROPS Design 13.02.2019 kl. 09:36:

Dear Kathy555jojo, in 1st round in A.1 work: *K3, YO, slip 1, K2 tog, psso, YO*, repeat from *-*. On 2nd round, knit all sts. On 3rd round work: *YO, slip 1, K2 tog, psso, YO, K3*, repeat from *-*. On 4th round knit all sts. Repeat these 4 rows in height. Happy knitting!

Bonjour et merci pour votre réponse. J'ai encore besoin de votre aide. Est-ce que Je peux utiliser des aiguilles circulaires 40cm no.15 à la place des aiguilles doubles pointes pour commencer le poncho? Merci.

DROPS Design 08.11.2017 kl. 08:44:

Bonjour Christine, vous pouvez tout à fait utiliser une aiguille circulaire de 40 cm pour commencer, la taille de l'aiguille circulaire doit toujours être inférieure à la circonférence, ici 32-36 m = environ 45-51 cm. Bon tricot!

Christine 06.11.2017 - 19:28:

Bonjour, Est-il possible d'utiliser une autre laine que Polaris? Je pensais á la qualité Eskimo en la doublant peut-être? Merci pour votre aide.

DROPS Design 07.11.2017 kl. 08:37:

Bonjour Christine, tout à fait, 2 fils du groupe E (Eskimo, Andes) = 1 fil du groupe F (Polaris). Retrouvez ici toutes les informations complémentaires sur les alternatives. Bon tricot!
