Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
GARTER ST (worked in the round):
* K 1 round and P 1 round *, repeat from *-*. 1 ridge = 2 rounds.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3. All sts in pattern are worked in stocking st.

KNITTING TIP:
To avoid the knitting tension to tighten when working pattern, it is important not to tighten the strands on back side of piece. Switch to a higher needle no when working pattern if the pattern is somewhat tight.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 st on each side of every marker by making a YO.
On next round K YOs mid front and mid back to make holes.
K YOs on each side of marker on shoulders twisted (i.e. work in back loop of st instead of front) to avoid holes.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 st by K 2 sts tog.
----------------------------------------------------------

PONCHO:
Worked in the round on circular needle, top down in stocking st. Work neck in rib. Rounds start mid back.

Cast on 120-132-144 sts on circular needle size 4.5 mm with black. Work rib = K 3/P 3 for 12 cm. Switch to circular needle size 5 mm. Work 2 rounds in stocking st while on 1st round dec 32-36-40 sts evenly - READ DECREASE TIP = 88-96-104 sts. Insert a marker here. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE. Now insert 4 markers in the piece as follows: Insert a marker in first st (= mid back), work 21-23-25 sts, insert a marker in next st (= right shoulder), work 21-23-25 sts, insert a marker in next st, (= mid front), work 21-23-25 sts, insert a marker in next st (= left shoulder), work the remaining 21-23-25 sts. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION On next round beg inc (total 8 inc per round). NOTE: Inc is different towards mid front/mid back and on each shoulder - READ INCREASE TIP.

INCREASE MID FRONT AND MID BACK:
Repeat inc on each side of st with marker every 4th round 16-18-19 more times.(Total 17-19-20 times)
INCREASE ON EACH SHOULDER:
Repeat inc on each side of st with marker every other round 18-25-34 more times.(Total 19-26-35 times)

When inc are done, there are 232-276-324 sts on round and piece measures approx. 31-35-37 cm from marker on neck (measured along inc mid back) as follows: Work 1 round in stocking st while inc 0-4-4 sts (i.e. 0-2-2 sts on each side between marker mid front and mid back) = 232-280-328 sts.
Then continue inc mid front and mid back every 4th round as before until finished measurements, AT THE SAME TIME work pattern - READ KNITTING TIP. NOTE: Work YOs and st with marker mid front and mid back in base colour in pattern on every round until finished measurements.
K 1 (= mid back), work A.1 (= 12 sts) 9-11-13 times in width, work the first 7 sts in A.1, K next st (= mid front), work A.1 9-11-13 times in width, work the first 7 sts in A.1. Continue like this in the round. Work the new inc sts in pattern, i.e. work st before st with marker in pattern from 8th st in A.1. Work st after st with marker so that the pattern is reversed on each side of st with marker. On next to last round in A.1 inc 4 sts evenly in all sizes (i.e. 2 sts in every section between st with marker front and back). When entire A.1 has been worked vertically, there are 260-308-356 sts on round. Now work as follows: K 1 (= mid back), work A.2 (= 24 sts) 5-6-7 times in width, work the first 9 sts in A.2, K 1 (= mid front), work A.2 5-6-7 times in width, work the first 9 sts in A.2. Continue like this in the round. Work the new inc sts in pattern, i.e. work st before st with marker in pattern from 10th st in A.2. Work st after st with marker so that pattern is reversed on each side of st with marker. On last round in A.2 inc 16 sts evenly in all sizes (i.e. 8 sts in every section between st with marker front and back). When entire A.2 has been worked vertically, there are 296-344-392 sts on round.
Now continue with pattern as follows: K 1 (= mid back), work A.3 (= 8 sts) 18-21-24 times in width, work the first 3 sts in A.3, K next st (= mid front), work A.3 18-21-24 times in width, work the first 3 sts in A.3. Continue like this in the round. Work the new inc sts in pattern, i.e. work st before st with marker in pattern from 4th st in A.3. Work st after st with marker so that pattern is reversed on each side of st with marker. When entire A.3 has been worked vertically, there are 320-368-416 sts on round. Switch to circular needle size 4.5 mm (or use 2 circular needles) and work 3 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above, with black, AT THE SAME TIME on first ridge inc 18-21-23 sts evenly = 338-389-439 sts. Cast off. Fasten off.

FRINGES:
Fasten fringes along the entire edge at the bottom as follows: 1 fringe = cut 2 lengths of 35 cm black. Place them double and thread loop through st in cast-off edge, pull the yarn ends through the loop. Repeat approx. every 4th st around the entire round - adjust to get a fringe in mid st front and back. Cut fringes to a length of approx. 13 cm.

Als reactie op de vraag van Janet: helpt het als je het telpatroon ondersteboven houdt? In dat geval klopt A1 volgens mij precies met de foto. En omdat je het patroon vanaf de hals (dus eigenlijk ondersteboven) breit, is dat misschien logisch. Ik vind het een geweldig patroon, ben aan het puzzelen op andere kleurtjes.

DROPS Design 19.09.2018 kl. 16:02:

Hallo Janke, Dat is ook een goede tip. Dankjewel!

Janet 15.09.2018 - 10:31:

Ik wil beginnen met het inbreien, maar heb het idee dat ik een stuk van het telpatroon niet heb. Wat komt er na A1? A2 zou logisch zijn, maar er zit nog een patroon tussenin die niet hier op de site staat. Kunt u mij daaraan helpen?

DROPS Design 17.09.2018 kl. 12:47:

Dag Janet, Ik heb de telpatronen nagekeken, en alle telpatronen die je nodig hebt staan erop. Je breit van boven naar beneden en in telpatroon A.1 is zowel de rand met zwart als basiskleur, als de rand waarin beige/camel de hoofdtoon voert, opgenomen.

Dusica Filipovska 29.08.2018 - 18:53:

Beautiful pattern.I have a problem with the part where pattern A1 begins.Do I increase every 4th row or?It also applies with the next A2 and A3.Thank you in advance

DROPS Design 30.08.2018 kl. 00:39:

Dear Dusica, yes, you keep increasing in every 4th row. for the A., A.2 and teh A.3 pattern as well. Work the increased stitches into the pattern. Happy Knitting!

Sonja 27.04.2017 - 13:14:

Hej den 17 april stillede jeg et spørgsmål, mon jeg får et svar? Mvh Sonja

DROPS Design 27.04.2017 kl. 16:07:

Hej Sonja, nu har vi svaret, se dit spørgsmål nedenfor. Og der vil blive lagt en rettelse ud på selve opskriften. God fornøjelse!

Sonja Mortensen-Dissing 17.04.2017 - 16:06:

Hej, jeg har læst kommentarerne og flere steder står der, at der er fejl i denne opskrift. Er den blevet rettet, så jeg kan strikke efter den der ligger her eller skal jeg have tilsendt en ny opskrift? Kh Sonja

DROPS Design 27.04.2017 kl. 16:06:

Hej Sonja, Der hvor der i opskriften står: På næste omgang starter alle udtagninger: her starter du med at tage 1 m ud på hver side af alle mærketråde (8 udtagninger) nu kan du følge udtagningerne ifølge opskriften og da vil antallet masker stemme efter udtagningerne. Vi skal lægge en rettelse ud så hurtigt som muligt. Tak for info!

Comte 16.12.2016 - 20:10:

Je ne comprends pas comment vous calculez le nombre de mailles avec les augmentations. 16*4ça fait64 18*4 ça fait 72 64 +72+88 ça fait 224

DROPS Design 19.12.2016 kl. 09:03:

Bonjour Mme Comte, après la 1ère augmentation, on a 96 m, puis on augmente encore 16x 4 + 18x4 m soit 96 + 64+72 = 232 m. C'est-à-dire que l'on augmente au total 17x4 + 18x4. Bon tricot!

Prevel 04.03.2016 - 18:21:

Je ne comprend pas les augmentations au milieu dos et devant au niveau du jacquard. car cela me deccale le dessin.,

DROPS Design 05.03.2016 kl. 17:54:

Bonjour Mme Prevel, tricotez les diagrammes en effet miroir (en sens inverse) aux pointes et continuez chaque "moitié" en suivant le diagramme. Le motif ne se suivra pas en rond, au niveau des pointes (comme on le voit sur la photo). Bon tricot!

Winnepenninckx 27.01.2016 - 18:29:

Comment savoir quelle taille commencer, je mesure 1.76m et je m habille en general en M / 40/44 j ai peur de d avoir une encolure trop large avec le modele taille L/XL et une longueur trop courte si je fais le modele taille S/M merci de votre aide

DROPS Design 28.01.2016 kl. 13:05:

Bonjour Mme Winnepenninckx, vous pouvez vous aider des mesures du schéma en bas de page (prises à plat, d'un côté à l'autre) pour trouver la taille idéale et ajuster la longueur en fonction de ce que vous préférez. Bon tricot!

Rebecca 23.01.2016 - 21:00:

Nicht undenkbar. ... sondern und. 😉

Rebecca 23.01.2016 - 20:58:

Hi, ich bin jetzt am Ende von A2 undenkbar soll nun 16M gleichmäßig verteilt zunehmen (8M zwischen den Markierern an der vorderen undenkbar hinteren Mitte). Da ist doch dann auf jeder Seite ein Loch von 4 Maschen? ! Ist das tatsächlich so gemeint?Lieben Dank für eine Antwort.

DROPS Design 02.02.2016 kl. 11:08:

Sie nehmen pro Hälfte des Ponchos 8 M zu. Sie haben ja, bevor Sie die letzte Rd von A.2 stricken, 280 M auf der Nadel, pro Hälfte also 140 M. Bei diesen jeweils 140 M nehmen Sie nun 8 M gleichmäßig verteilt zu, indem Sie je 1 Umschlag machen. Diesen stricken Sie dann in der nächsten Rd re verschränkt, damit kein Loch sichtbar wird.
