Gentili deposito design, ho un dubbio: una volta lavorate le due parti,avanti e dietro, e passate sul ferro circolare, devo avere entrambi i lati pronti per essere lavorati al dritto del lavoro. Quindi se non ho capito male iniziò a lavorare in tondo dalle 5 maglie a maglia rasata che mi trovo su un lato giusto? Grazie

Buongiorno Laura. Sì, il giro inizia sul lato con 5 maglie a legaccio. Buon lavoro!

Hello there, I have Knitted a gauge swatch in the round and washed it in 5,5mm needles. Now i have 14,5stitches by 22 rows per 10 cm. How do I fix the gauge? If I go Down needle size to match the stitches, then I would end up with Even more rows, won't I? Or do I swatch back and forth, not in the round? Thank you

Dear Mrs Grotelüschen, that's correct you should try again with smaller needles - read more here. Make sure you are working with same tension in the round/back and forth to keep correct tension working poncho. Happy knitting!

Der Poncho ist super leicht nachzustricken und sieht klasse aus. Ich stricke ihn schon das zweite Mal. Für meine Schwester. Danke für die Anleitung.

Elegant, beautifully designed. Please publish! As someone else here commented, all the features are in the right place. Everything about this is flattering. I could see this is a lace-weight yarn as well. Beautiful!
