GARTER ST (back and forth on needle):
K all rows. 1 ridge = K2 rows.

ROW 1: K from RS.
ROW 2: P from WS.
ROW 3: K from RS.
ROW 4: K from WS.

ROW 1 (= RS): K all sts.
ROW 2 (= WS): * K 1, P 1 *, repeat from *-* and finish with K 1.

Worked in two parts that are sewn tog when finished. Each part is worked back and forth on circular needle.

PART 1: Cast on 45-51-55-59 sts on circular needle size 8 mm / US 11 with 2 strands Brushed Alpaca Silk. Work the first 2 rows as follows: Work PATTERN 2 over the first 17-19-21-23 sts, 1 ridge in GARTER ST - see explanation – over the remaining 28-32-34-36 sts. Then work as follows from RS: Pattern 2 over the first 17-19-21-23 sts as before, PATTERN 1 over the remaining 28-32-34-36 sts. Continue pattern like this. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When piece measures approx. 64-71-77-83 cm / 25 1/4"-28"-30½"-32 3/4" - adjust so that next row is worked from RS, work pattern 2 over the first 17-19-21-23 sts as before, work 1 ridge over 28-32-34-36 sts. Bind off. Piece measures approx. 65-72-78-84 cm / 25½"-28½"-30 3/4"-33".

PART 2: Cast on and work as 1st part.

Place bind-off edge on 1st part towards right long side on 2nd part - at the bottom towards cast-on edge and 41-46-50-54 cm / 16"-18"-19 3/4"-21 1/4" upwards – make sure not to stretch the piece too much. Sew the 2 parts tog with neat little stitches. Then sew bind-off edge on 2nd part to right side on 1st part the same way.

Work an neck edge with a "scarf" on each side of opening at the front as follows (sew scarfs tog mid back when finished):
Insert 2 markers mid front of neck, approx. 5-5-6-7 cm / 2"-2-"2½"-2 3/4" from tip mid front and up, measured along each side of neck.
LOOSELY cast on 45-49-54-58 sts on circular needle size 7 mm / US 10.75 with 2 strands Brushed Alpaca Silk, then pick up from RS approx. 37 to 47 sts around the neck (beg at one marker at the front and finish at the other marker), then LOOSELY cast on 45-49-54-58 new sts at the end of row = approx. 127-163 sts. Work in garter st back and forth until neck edge measures 7-7-8-9 cm / 2 3/4"-2 3/4"-3"-3½". Now work short rows to make the edge higher at the back of neck as follows: Work 46-50-56-60 sts, slip these sts on 1 stitch holder, work the rest of row, turn and work 46-50-56-60 sts, slip these sts on 1 stitch holder, work the rest of row, * turn and work 4-5-5-6 sts, slip these sts on 1 stitch holder, work the rest of row, turn piece and work 4-5-5-6 sts, slip these sts on 1 stitch holder and work the rest of row *, repeat from *-* 2 more times. Now slip sts from stitch holders back on the needle and continue in garter st back and forth over all sts until neck edge measures approx. 9-9-10-11 cm / 3½"-3½"-4"-4½" on the most narrow part (i.e. at the edge in each side). Loosely bind off.
Place the two "scarfs" over shoulders and to mid back so that short sides meet mid back. Sew short sides tog edge to edge in outer loops of edge sts. Neck edge now lies around the opening of the poncho.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

Come indicato sul convertitore filati chiedo a voi: posso sostituire i due capi di brushed alpaca silk con 1 filo Eskimo? dove abito non ho nessuno da contatatre, chiedo a voi graziee

DROPS Design 03.09.2019 kl. 08:41:

Buongiorno Aissela, il convertitore di filati consiglia Melody per questo modello per mantenere la leggerezza. Se preferisce può sostituire Brushed Alpaca Silk con 1 filo di Andes o Eskimo, tenendo conto che il capo risulterà più pesante. Faccia attenzione alla metratura per il calcolo della quantità di filato necessaria. Buon lavoro!

Jeg har som andre også problemer med starten. Kan det, for det første, blive med bogstavligt hvad jeg skal de 2 første pinde efter opslag? Kan det, for de andet, blive præciseret hvad jeg skal på 3. pind og om det er ret eller vrangsiden. Vh. Gitte

DROPS Design 16.01.2019 kl. 13:55:

Hei Gitte. Pinne 1 strikkes slik fra rettsiden: Alle masker strikkes rett på denne pinnen: Strikk MØNSTER-2 over de første 17-19-21-23 m (alle masker strikkes rett), så strikker du RETSTRIK over de resterende 28-32-34-36 m. Pinne 2 strikkes slik fra vrangsiden: strikk rett over de første 28-32-34-36 m (retstrik) og så strikkes MØNSTER-2 over de resterende 17-19-21-23 m (*1 rett, 1 vrang* gjenta dette). Pinne 3 strikkes fra rettsiden: du fortsetter med MØNSTER-2 over de første 17-19-21-23 m, men nå strikkes MØNSTER-1 over de maskene du strikket retstrik over på de 2 første pinnene. God fornøyelse.

Ik kom er niet uit. Ik lees: de eerste twee toeren als volgt: de eerste 2 nld eerste 19 steken beginnen met Patroon 2 (P2). Dan 32 steken ribbel. (Dat is van de verkeerde kant na opzetten naar de goede kant?) De volgende nld aan de goede kant de eerste 19... Dat zou betekenen aan de andere kant van het werk...

DROPS Design 11.01.2019 kl. 10:01:

Dag JustKarin,

Je zet eerst op en dan begin je de eerste naald aan de goede kant. In die eerste naald brei je de eerste 19 steken in patroon en dan de rest van de steken in ribbelsteken. Op de 2e naald aan de verkeerde kant brei je eerst de ribbelsteken en op het eind de 19 steken in patroon.

Er wordt aangegeven dat dit garen in klasse C valt. In dezelfde klasse valt Drops Nepal. De atekenverhouding van het proeflapje klopt. Maar hoe kan ik van vier bollen van 75 meter een poncho breien die bestaat uit twee lappen van 50 51 steken en 71 cm? Dat kan nooit kloppen.

DROPS Design 09.01.2019 kl. 11:19:

Dag Karin,

Brushed Alpaca Silk gaat per bol van 25 gram en er zit 140 meter op een bol. Als je het garen wilt vervangen moet je kijken naar de looplengte; in plaats van 150 gram Brushed Alpaca Silk heb je dan 6x140 meter van een ander garen nodig. Op die manier kun je omrekenen hoeveel bollen je nodig hebt (DROPS Nepal gaat per 50 gram)

Siri N 03.01.2019 - 20:09:

Hvilken størrelse er det på ponchoen som modellen har?

DROPS Design 08.01.2019 kl. 14:50:

Hei Siri. Den er en S eller en M. Nederst i oppskrifen finner du en målskisse med alle plaggets mål i alle størrelser. God fornøyelse.

Marie Andree Garnodon 26.10.2016 - 10:40:

Merci beaucoup pour votre réponse rapide et très claire. Bonne journée !

Marie Andrée Garnodon 25.10.2016 - 23:25:

Je vous prie de ne pas tenir compte de ma question précédente. J'ai trouvé où se situe le problème: Je n'avais pas compris qu'il fallait faire 4 rangs en point fantaisie1pour 2 rangs de point fantaisie 2. Je dois tout recommencer. !!!!!!

DROPS Design 26.10.2016 kl. 09:30:

Bonjour Mme Garnodon, on tricote les 2 points fantaisie en même temps, soit le point fantaisie 2 sur les 21 premières m et le point fantaisie 1 sur les 34 dernières m (en taille L) en commençant le point fantaisie 1 par 1 côte mousse (= 2 rangs endroit). Le point fantaisie 2 se tricote sur 2 rangs (= 1 rang jersey, 1 rang 1 m end/1 m env) et le point fantaisie 1 se tricote sur 4 rangs (= 2 rangs jersey, 2 rangs point mousse), c'est-à-dire que l'on tricote 2x le point fantaisie 2 en hauteur pour 1 fois le point fantaisie 1 en hauteur). Bon tricot!

Marie Andree Garnodon 25.10.2016 - 22:58:

Pour assembler les 2 parties j'ai un problème: la partie en point fantaisie 2 est très distendue, donc plus longue que la partie en point fantaisie 1 qui doit s'y rattacher. Si je couds sur 50 cm il reste 45cm et non 14cm pour l’encolure. Comment faire pour que les dimensions soient respectées? Merci de votre réponse

DROPS Design 26.10.2016 kl. 09:27:

Bonjour Mme Garnodon, pensez à bien conserver la même tension pour les 2 points fantaisie pour que les mesures soient correctes. Bon tricot!

Barbara 10.02.2016 - 22:11:

Hello, I have finished the two parts and stiched them together,I would like to make the neck fully attached is this possible and how? Thank you!

DROPS Design 11.02.2016 kl. 10:19:

Dear Barbara, the video below shows how the collar is worked - this can inspire you to find a way to attach it fully. Happy knitting!

Stella Moreau 30.12.2015 - 18:23:

Bonjour je nai pas daiguille circulaire comment faire pour tricoter avec aiguille normal merci

DROPS Design 02.01.2016 kl. 15:40:

Bonjour Mme Moreau, le poncho se tricote entièrement en allers et retours sur aiguille circulaire pour avoir suffisamment de place pour y loger toutes les mailles. Vous pouvez tricoter sur aig. droites mais comme vos mailles seront plus serrées, veillez à bien conserver la bonne tension. Voir aussi ici. Bon tricot!
