GARTER ST (worked in the round):
* K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*. 1 ridge = 2 rounds.

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

See diagrams A.1-A.2. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

Work front and back piece separately back and forth on circular needle until after vent in the sides, then work in the round on circular needle.

Cast on 119-135-151 sts on circular needle size 5.5 mm / US 9 with Brushed Alpaca Silk. Work 1 ridge in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Then work as follows from RS: 3 sts in garter st, P 1, A.1 (= 16 sts) until 3 sts remains, finish with 3 sts in garter st. When A.1 has been worked 1 time vertically, there are 105-119-133 sts on needle. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE Continue in stockinette st back and forth with 3 sts in garter st in each side until piece measures 11 cm / 4½'', adjust so that next row is from RS. Put sts on a st holder or some scrap yarn and work back piece.

On next round, dec 0-4-12 sts evenly = 120-132-140 sts. Insert 1 marker in piece. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!

När man har satt ihop styckena på rundsticka, var börjar varvet? Har ju betydelse för var spetsmönstret från diagram 2 hamnar...

Hej Sara. Du starter fra begyndelsen af forstykket (i overgang mellem bakstk og forstk og strikker rundt over alle masker.

Hi, very cute model, I did beige colour. Looking for next one. Did anybody use other yarn?

Lydia 20.12.2015 - 00:37:

Bonjour, les diagrammes sont très bien expliqués mais lorsque l'on a fait les 2 premiers rangs a l'endroit puis le 3eme rang avec le diagramme A1 répété 7 fois, on est au 4eme rang sur l'envers mais on ne sait pas comment le démarrer ? Le rang ne démarre pas par le diagramme, on doit tricoter des mailles avant, mais lesquelles ? Merci d'avance

DROPS Design 21.12.2015 kl. 11:53:

Bonjour Lydia, au 1er rang de A.1, on diminue 2 m, chaque motif de A.1 se tricote alors sur 14 m. Au 2ème rang de A.1( = sur l'envers), lisez le diagramme de gauche à droite (quand vous tricotez en allers retours) et commencez par 1 m end sur l'env (= jersey env), puis 13 m env (= jersey end). Bon tricot!

Re. Drops 160-6 . Unable to find/view video for ths pattn as im having trouble following diagram .. just need a start ... hav 1st row done .. after 3garter sts what do I repeat please?

DROPS Design 30.07.2015 kl. 10:51:

Dear Mrs Conway, in the diagrams 1 square = 1 st x 1 row. Read diagrams starting from the bottom corner on the right side towards the left from RS (when working in rows) / every round (when working in the round), and from the left towards the right from WS. After 1st row from RS, work next row from WS with K3, A.1 until 4 sts remain (from WS= read from the left towards the right), K1 (the P1 from RS), and K3 (garter st). Happy knitting!

Hi ... recd yarn from drops ... ready to start poncho ... having trouble pulling up a video on this ? Can u help please. Mary

DROPS Design 01.06.2015 kl. 10:45:

Dear Mrs Conway, you first work each piece separately (front and back piece) for 11 cm, then work both pieces together in the round to the end. Read more about diagrams here. Happy knitting!

Salve... Avete mai pensato di fare dei video così da essere più facile da capire per noi principianti??? Grazie

DROPS Design 03.05.2015 kl. 23:02:

Buonasera Cira. In tutti i nostri modelli, sulla striscia grigia a destra della fotografia, se clicca sulla voce Video, trova tutti i video consigliati per la realizzazione del modello stesso. Inoltre a questo link trova l'elenco completo dei video disponibili, elenco in continuo aggiornamento. Buon lavoro!

Léa 27.03.2015 - 17:03:

Bonjours! je souhaiterais savoir comment tricoter l'envers des poins fantaisie? dois je tricoter les maillet comme elles viennent? merci d'avance

DROPS Design 30.03.2015 kl. 14:40:

Bonjour Léa, les diagrammes montrent tous les rangs des points fantaisie, vus sur l'endroit. Les carrés blancs se tricotent en jersey end (= à l'end sur l'end, à l'env sur l'env quand on tricote en rangs, puis à l'end quand on tricote en rond) - les points noirs se tricotent à l'env sur l'end (= à l'end sur l'envers). Bon tricot!

Rita 25.03.2015 - 20:50:

Grazie e mi scuso, non ero arrivata in fondo alla pagina . Devo dire che il Poncho è molto piu bello lavorato che in foto.

Rita 23.03.2015 - 08:33:

20 cm in altezza solo per il collo? Quindi in totale il lavoro quanto misura? Grazie

DROPS Design 23.03.2015 kl. 08:53:

Buongiorno Rita. Trova l’indicazione delle misure nel diagramma riportato alla fine delle spiegazioni. A seconda della taglia, l’altezza del poncho (collo escluso) sarà di: 38-42-46 cm. A queste misure deve aggiungere i 20 cm del collo. Buon lavoro!

Pascale 04.02.2015 - 22:57:

Très joli, je suis impatiente d'en connaitre le détail. Cela dégage un sentiment de légèreté et d'enveloppement.
