Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
Gauge: 10 sts and garter st = 10 cm.

Pattern: See chart. The pattern is seen from the right side.

Tips: Count the rows at neck when joining pieces so that the neck will be identical at each side.

Poncho: The poncho is knit in two pieces and then sewn together.

1st piece: Loosely cast on 38-41-45 sts with 1 strand Paris + 1 strand Vivaldi (2 strands) and knit 2 rows garter st. Then establish pattern on the next row as follows: * 7-8-10 sts garter st, Pattern 1 (= 8 sts), 8-9-9 sts garter st, Pattern 1 (= 8 sts) and 7-8-10 sts garter st *, repeat * - * until piece measures 66-73-81 cm – adjust after 1 entire repeat of Pattern 1. Knit 2 rows garter st, then bind off all sts loosely.

2nd piece: Cast on and knit the same as the 1st side.

Assembly: Sew the 2 sides together as follows: sew the bound-off edge of 1st piece to the right long side of 2nd piece. Start at lower edge of cast-on edge of 2nd piece and sew to 1st piece along 33-36-40 cm of cast-on edge – see Tips above. Make sure that the seam is not too tight.
Sew bound-off edge of 2nd piece to the long side of 1st piece in the same manner.
Poncho measures approx. 33-36-40 cm from neck and down shoulder, and approx. 47-51-57 cm from neck and down center front.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

Ciska Nuijten 12.03.2014 - 22:26:

Ik snap helemaal niks van deze beschrijving. ik ben al 3 keer opnieuw begonnen

DROPS Design 13.03.2014 kl. 17:08:

Hoi Ciska. Als je zou uitleggen wat je niet begrijpt, dan kan ik proberen je verder te helpen.

De Veirman Lisa 20.02.2014 - 12:22:

Hallo, Of ik zie niet goed meer maar ik zie enkel de uitleg van de ribbelsteek en niet van de kabel. De teltekening zegt ook heel weing. Mvg beginnend breisterke Lisa :-)

DROPS Design 20.02.2014 kl. 13:59:

Hoi Lisa. Je kan in onze video's zien hoe je ribbelst moet breien, maar ook een basis kabel. Je kan hier zien hoe je onze teltekeningen moet lezen. Veel breiplezier.

I am having trouble visualizing how to saw it up, I wish the pattern had a diagram how to do it

Laura Enríquez Ramírez 23.10.2012 - 21:31:

He intentado realizar este patrón pero no me sale, en talla M/L monté los 41 puntos, luego tejí las dos vueltas en punto musgo, posteriormente tej: 8 puntos, luego 9 puntos y posteriormente 8, dan un total de 25 puntos, pero en que parte tejo las trenzas????, además si le sumo los 6 puntos de cada trenza, son 12 puntos, más los 25, son un Total de 37 puntos, qué hago con los otros 4 puntos que me sobran????

DROPS Design 23.11.2012 kl. 08:53:

Laura, debes establecer el patrón de acuerdo a la talla M/L así: 8 pts en pt musgo, diagrama M.1 (= 8 pts), 9 pts en pt musgo, diagrama M.1 (= 8 pts) y 8 pts en pt musgo = 41 pts. Cariños!

Hallo ik heb een vraag zijn dit gewoon 2 rechte lappen?

DROPS Design 13.09.2012 kl. 12:30:

Ja, dat klopt

Yvonne Barshaw 24.10.2011 - 12:41:

Als ik op de foto kijk kkan ik me niet voorstellen dat dit de enige 2 delen zijn. Bij de nek zie ik dat er een heel stuk alleen recht gebreid is. Ik ben gisteren begonnen maar vraag me af of dit goed is deze 2 delen en dan wordt het een poncho.

DROPS Design NL 24.10.2011 - 12:36:

Mevrouw. Wat mist u?

Yvonne Barshaw 24.10.2011 - 12:33:

Ik denk niet dat dit patroon compleet is.
