Continue the pattern like this - NOTE: On 7th row in A.1 K last st before edge sts. When A.1 has been worked, switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm. Insert 1 marker after the first 47-51-55 sts on needle and 1 marker after the next 45 sts (= 47-51-55 sts after last marker at the end of row).

ALL SIZES: Work next row as follows from RS: 4 edge sts as before, work A.2 over the next 12-16-20 sts, work A.4 (= 31 sts), 1st marker, A.6A (= 4 sts), work pattern according to diagram A.6B until 5 sts remain before 2nd marker, A.6C (= 5 sts), A.5 (= 31 sts), work A.3 over the next 12-16-20 sts and finish with 4 edge sts as before. Continue pattern like this. There will be lanes with lace pattern upwards on each side of markers and work borders with lace pattern between the 2 markers. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION. Size S/M and L/XL: Continue to ALL SIZES.

Size XXL/XXXL: When A.6 has been worked one time vertically, work 3 ridges between markers (work the other sts as before), then work A.6 one more time between markers (continue the other sts as before).

ALL SIZES: When A.6 has been worked, work pattern according to diagram A.1 between the 2 markers mid front (continue the other sts as before) AT THE SAME TIME on next to last row in diagram (= RS) dec 4 sts evenly (= 41 sts between markers and 135-143-151 sts on row).
After A.1 work A.7 between the 2 markers as follows (continue the other sts as before): Work A.7A (= 5 sts), work A.7B until 6 sts remain before marker and finish with A.7C (= 6 sts).

When 4 cm remain before piece measures 60-64-68 cm (adjust so that next row is worked from RS), switch to circular needle size 3 mm. Continue with pattern according to diagram A.1 before loosely casting off. Repeat in the other side.

Cast on and work as front piece.

Sew the shoulder seams. The poncho should be open in each side.

Fasten fringes along the bottom edge of poncho both front and back. Fasten fringes in holes in A.1.
1 fringe = cut 6 lengths of 35 cm each. Fold them double, pull the loops true the holes and pull the yarn ends true the loops. Fasten each fringe approx. 3 cm apart. Then split the fringes in 2 and tie tog with next fringe. Continue like this with all fringes.

Vera Lundin 12.08.2017 - 17:29:

A9 hur hoppar man över 2 maskor?

DROPS Design 14.08.2017 kl. 13:44:

Dessa två svarta rutor är inga maskor, dvs. du ska bara ignorera dem i diagrammet. Det hoppas alltså inte över några maskor i själva arbetet.

Sharon Zeiler 27.03.2017 - 18:42:

Pattern says "when A.6 has been worked" does that include A.6.A, A.6.B and A.6.C equalling 15 stitches

DROPS Design 28.03.2017 kl. 01:10:

Dear Sharon, thank you for your question. It means, when you finsihed knitting the rows of pattern A.6 (which consists of A.6A, A.6B, and A.6C. I hope this helps. Happy knitting!

Katja Juranek 19.03.2016 - 16:29:

In der Strickschrift für den Schmetterling wurde ja bereits der Fehler entdeckt. Gibt es da ein Update für die Anleitung?

DROPS Design 21.03.2016 kl. 10:59:

Liebe Katja, die Korrektur von Diagramm A.9 wurde bereits am 10.4.15 vorgenommen.

Hélène 24.01.2016 - 00:31:

Bonjour, J'ai bien lu votre réponse mais je ne vois toujours pas : toutes les 3 côtes mousse veut donc dire que je tricote les jetés de la bordure au début du 7 rang ? Merci.

DROPS Design 25.01.2016 kl. 12:07:

Bonjour Hélène, c'est exact, les jours de la bordure se font au début et à la fin du rang (de chaque côté). Bon tricot!

Hélène 17.01.2016 - 18:20:

Bonjour, Je vous embête de nouveau mais me retrouve face à un petit souci. Pr la bordure, il est dit de faire un point différent ts les 6 rgs, donc rgs 6, 12, 18.... Il est dit que c'est sur l'end, or, si on suit A1, le rg 1 est sur l'end donc le 6 est sur l'env, non? Ou je lis mal A1 et il ne montre pas les rgs env... Mais du coup, je ne suis pas sûre de comprendre comment tricoter les rgs env... Merci!

DROPS Design 18.01.2016 kl. 14:55:

Bonjour Hélène, on va tricoter les jours sur les mailles de bordure tous les 6 rangs = toutes les 3 côtes mousse. Bon tricot!

Hélène 14.01.2016 - 21:27:

Bonjour, Comment doit-on tricoter les jetés ? Car dans la vidéo, on nous montre deux façons de les tricoter, avec pour effet soit un gros trou, soit un petit trou. Merci.

DROPS Design 15.01.2016 kl. 09:09:

Bonjour Hélène, quand on augmente, on tricote le jeté torse (= dans le brin arrière) pour faire un trou plus petit, dans un motif ajouré, comme ici les différents diagrammes, on tricote les jetés "normalement", à l'envers, au rang suivant. Bon tricot!

Kathleen 23.11.2015 - 10:15:

Can I use ordinary needles as I find it very hard using circla needles thanks

DROPS Design 23.11.2015 kl. 11:06:

Dear Kathleen, the poncho is worked back and forth on circular needle to get enough room for all sts - you can use straight needle but your sts will be more tight, make sure you keep correct tension. Read more about this here. Happy knitting!

Sabine 19.10.2015 - 22:28:

Können Sie mir bitte sagen wie hoch der Halsausschnitt in cm ist bei Größe XL?

DROPS Design 20.11.2015 kl. 09:26:

Liebe Sabine, leider habe ich das Modell nicht zum Nachmessen zur Hand. Aber wie auf dem Foto erkennbar ist, hat dieser Sommerponcho einen recht tiefen Ausschnitt.
