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.
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 = 2 rows K.

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

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

Sew with Brushed Alpaca Silk/melody short side (= cast-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.

Quante maglie devo avviare alla.inizio?

DROPS Design 08.03.2019 kl. 19:40:

Buonasera Anna. A seconda della taglia, deve avviare 63-71-80 maglie. P.es per la taglia S/M, avvia 63 maglie. Buon lavoro!

Tolle Anleitung in toller Wolle. Ich habe in Alpaka silk mit 2 Fäden gestrickt und das Garn hat locker gereicht. Größenangabe etwas sparsam-ich habe bei Größe 38 in L/XL gearbeitet. Leider ist die Anleitung unnötig kompliziert; der Poncho ist ganz einfach zu stricken, braucht aber bei kraus rechts etwas Zeit. Ich würde mir Fotos von hinten und von vorne wünschen!

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!

Lyn 05.06.2017 - 11:43:

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.

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!
