Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
Use yarn from both inside and outside of the ball. When switching to a new ball, try to avoid switching both strands at the same time - to avoid a thick yarn when fastening.

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

Cut 4 lengths of yarn of 36 cm / 14 1/4''. Fold them double and pull the loop through 1st st in bind-off edge and pull the yarn ends through the loop. Insert a fringe along bind-off edge approx. every 3 cm / 1'' along the entire edge. Cut fringes to a length of approx. 15 cm / 6''.

Worked back and forth on needle. READ DOUBLE YARN TIP.
Cast on 63-71-80 sts on circular needle size 6 mm / US 10 with 2 strands Brushed Alpaca Silk or 1 strand Melody. Work in GARTER ST back and forth - see explanation above! REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE Continue like this until piece measures 45-51-57 cm / 17 3/4"-20"-22½". Insert 1 marker in the side of piece, marks where to sew bind-off edge tog with the side. Work in garter st until piece measures 112-121-130 cm / 44"-47 1/4"-51½". Bind off.

Sew with Brushed Alpaca Silk/melody short side (= bind-off edge) tog with long side, from marker and down to cast-on edge. Sew in outer loops of edge sts. Opposite side now forms a tip mid front. Fasten FRINGES - see explanation above, on poncho.

Combien faut il diminuer de maille lorsque l'on est arrivé au 45cm ? Merci

DROPS Design 16.11.2017 kl. 14:10:

Bonjour Mme Chabrier, on ne diminue pas à 45 cm de hauteur totale, on place simplement un marqueur sur le côté, ce marqueur servira ensuite pour l'assemblage, comme le montre la vidéo ci-dessous. Bon tricot!

Chelsea 29.09.2017 - 16:22:

Is the Lorelei poncho knitted as a large rectangle? I am confused. The diagram looks like you must bind off a section for the neck hole. Also am I reading the diagram correctly regarding where the knitting begins (where the arrow points up)? and the dotted line is where the marker must be placed? Thank you for any help! Much appreciated!

DROPS Design 02.10.2017 kl. 09:14:

Dear Chelsea, the poncho is a long rectangle knitted from the bottom up (see arrow for knitting direction) - the dotted line in chart match the seam of cast off edge along the side of the rectangle. See also the video below on how to assembly this kind of poncho. Happy knitting!

Bonjour, est il possible de tricoter ce modele en fil de coton, par exemple et ds ce cas combien de pelotes faut il? Merci de votre reponse

DROPS Design 18.08.2017 kl. 13:58:

Bonjour, C’est bien sur possible. Premierement choisissez une qualite alternative (une laine en coton que vous voulez) ICI. Ensuite consultez notre lecon sur ce sujet: Puis-je utiliser un fil différent de celui mentionné dans le modèle?. Bon travail!

Could you please advise what ply the Melody wool is. For example, 8 ply, 12 ply?

DROPS Design 05.06.2017 kl. 12:01:

Dear Lyn, Melody is 12 ply. Happy knitting!

Vala Gudjonsdottir 15.09.2016 - 10:37:

Försöker hitta ett garnalternativ till denna. Den jag ska sticka till vill ha garn som går att tvätta fintvätt (vill ej ha bomull eller lin). Vad jag kan se så är det endast Big Merino i Garngrupp C som skulle passa. I mönstret står det att man ska använda C+C alltså dubbeltråd. Stämmer det verkligen om man använder Big Merino? Har ni förslag på annat garn som skulle passa?

DROPS Design 15.09.2016 kl. 11:57:

Hej Vala. Ja, det stemmer med dobbelt traad Big Merino. Du kan eventuelt ogsaa pröve med 4 traade af et garn fra kategori B: Karisma eller Cotton Merino? Husk altid at strikke en pröve först saa din strikkefasthed stemmer.

Susan 14.03.2016 - 21:35:

I am presently working on this poncho pattern and am having difficulty knowing where to place the marker after having completed the 20". Any assistance would be greatly appreciated with thanks.

DROPS Design 15.03.2016 kl. 09:04:

Dear Susan, marker on the side is inserted on one side of piece, after piece will be finished, you will sew the cast off edge along the left side of beg of piece: from cast on edge to marker. See also video below. Happy knitting!

Lorna Fuller 17.02.2016 - 02:20:

Please ignore my last question! I worked out that I DO need another ball of Big Delight to complete the poncho. It's a shame it's not clear on the pattern to match meterage rather than weight! I wish I'd realised sooner....

DROPS Design 17.02.2016 kl. 10:07:

Dear Mrs Fuller, all our patterns give total weight of yarn required for each size, you can always calculate number of balls and total meterage/yardage required by clicking on the shadecard. Happy knitting!

Lorna Fuller 17.02.2016 - 00:23:

I'm really looking forward to knitting this poncho pattern but using Big Delight as it's in the same yarn category. I'm assuming I still only need 200g for the S/M otherwise there would surely be adjustments for using different yarns? I have therefore ordered 2x100g balls of Big Delight. I hope I won't need more as it'll be on a different order so a different batch number and more p&p costs! Please advise ASAP. Many thanks.

DROPS Design 17.02.2016 kl. 09:03:

Dear Mrs Fuller, please click here to read more about yarn alternatives and calculate new amount in alternative you need. Happy knitting!

HELENE PEYRAN 31.01.2016 - 22:18:

Bonjour, Je souhaite faire ce modèle mais je ne sais pas quelle taille choisir … Je n’ai pas trouvé sur votre site de tableau de correspondance par rapport à la taille du corps en cm. D’avance merci pour votre réponse ! Hélène.

DROPS Design 01.02.2016 kl. 10:51:

Bonjour Mme Peyran, vous trouverez à la fin de nos modèles un schéma avec toutes les mesures pour chaque taille - comparez ces mesures avec un vêtement analogue dont vous aimez la forme pour trouver la taille à suivre. Bon tricot!

Inger Marie Sønderskov 24.01.2016 - 16:42:

Jeg er i tvivl om, hvordan jeg kommer videre, når jeg har strikket 45 cm med 63 masker og sat 1 mærke. Hvordan fremkommer V-formen ca.28-32 ?? Der er noget, jeg ikke kan se ??? Kan jeg få lidt hjælp ????? Med venlig hilsen Inger Marie og med tak

DROPS Design 27.01.2016 kl. 08:58:

Hej. När du har satt ett märke så stickar du bara vidare som tidigare. (Det är vid märket som du ska börja sy sen när du stickat klart och ska montera.) V-formen framkommer vid montering. Se denna video för montering:
