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

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

See diagram A.1. The diagram shows all rows in pattern seen from RS.

When piece is worked back and forth inc on every row from WS. When piece is worked in the round continue to inc every other round.
Inc after 1st and 3rd marker and before 2nd and 4th marker as follows:
Inc with 1 YO, DO NOT work YO twisted on next row/round, it should make a hole. Work YOs in pattern.

First work back and forth, top down, then in the round. Cast on 78-86-94-102 sts on circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 with Air. Work 1 ridge in GARTER ST - see explanation above AT THE SAME TIME on last row inc 10 sts evenly = 88-96-104-112 sts. Switch to circular needle size 6 mm / US 10. Work as follows from RS: 2 sts in garter st, insert 1st marker, repeat A.1 (= 2 sts) over the next 40-44-48-52 sts, insert 2nd marker, 4 sts in garter st, insert 3rd marker, repeat A.1 over the next 40-44-48-52 sts, insert 4th marker, finish with 2 sts in garter st. Continue the pattern like this AT THE SAME TIME inc on every other row - read INCREASE TIP. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When piece measures 29 cm / 11½'', work piece in the round, displace round so that round beg mid back with 4 sts in garter st. Work A.1 and in garter st as before. Continue to inc every other round. When piece measures 56-58-60-62 cm / 22"-22 3/4"-23½"-24½", switch to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8. Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Loosely bind off.

Cut 2 lengths of 4 metres/4.5 yds each with off white. Twine the strands tog until they resist, fold the string double so that it twines again. Make a knot at each end. Thread the tie through the holes in pattern, cross it at the edge by the 2 sts in garter st (= neck split).


All measurements in charts are in cm.

Hi! Could you explain me how many loops do I need for size 54? Thank you for the lovely pattern)

DROPS Design 08.02.2019 kl. 12:12:

Dear Saule, you will find the number of stitches to cast on under the written pattern, ie 78 sts in first size, 86 sts in 2nd size, 94 sts in 3rd size and 102 sts in larger size. To find the matching size, compare the measurements from a similar garment you have and like the shape to the ones from t he chart. Read more about sizing here. Happy knitting!

Sol Østhagen 25.06.2018 - 18:21:

Hei! Når jeg skal begynne å strikke rundt og forskyve omgangen, betyr det at jeg altså begynner med de fire rette maskene?

DROPS Design 27.06.2018 kl. 15:22:

Hei Sol. Ja det betyr at du begynner midt bak med 4 masker rille og fortsetter ellers mønsteret etter A.1. God fornøyelse.

Rosalba Hernández 16.03.2018 - 20:22:

Cómo muevo la vuelta de inicio a los 4 puntos de atrás?

DROPS Design 08.04.2018 kl. 18:34:

Hola Rosalba, al terminar la vuelta cortas el hilo, cuentas 4 puntos desde atrás y colocas en él el marcapuntos. A partir de ahora, este punto contará como inicio de la vuelta.

Delchet 10.05.2017 - 12:34:

Bonjour, je bloque sur le poncho. j'ai fait mes 29 cm en allers retours, et je ne vois pas comment décaler le tour au milieu dos en commençant par 4 m. au point mousse pour continuer en rond. J'ai regardé la vidéo sans succès. Mon dernier rang est le 6 de A1. Pouvez-vous m'aider ? Merci

DROPS Design 10.05.2017 kl. 13:51:

Bonjour Mme Delchet, vous pouvez couper le fil et commencer les tours après les 4 m point mousse du milieu dos. Bon tricot!

Benedetta 30.09.2016 - 08:55:

Sì, infatti dopo ho capito.Grazie

Benedetta 29.09.2016 - 21:36:

Buonasera,in merito agli aumenti non è specificato quante m.bisogna aumentare e quante sono le maglie alla fine in totale.Potete aiutarmi? Grazie

DROPS Design 29.09.2016 kl. 22:17:

Buonasera Benedetta, nel SUGGERIMENTO PER GLI AUMENTI all'inizio delle spiegazioni può trovare tutte le indicazioni che ha chiesto. Deve continuare ad aumentare fino a quando il lavoro misura 29 cm. Buon lavoro!

Sandrine 24.08.2016 - 19:07:

Bonsoir et merci pour vos explications qui m'ont permis de comprendre très clairement. Aujourd'hui j'ai bien avancé et je dois commencer à tricoter le poncho en circulaire. Pourriez-vous me dire si je commence le premier rand en maille envers, puis inversement. En sachant, que j'ai juste avant le rang "2 m ens à l'end, 1 jeté". Merci encore pour votre aide précieuse.

DROPS Design 25.08.2016 kl. 10:04:

Bonjour Sandrine, tout à fait, quand vous tricotez ce motif en rond, vous tricotez les mailles comme elles doivent se présenter sur l'endroit, c'est-à-dire aux rangs 1 et 2: à l'endroit, rang 3: comme avant (2 m ens à l'end, 1 jeté), rang 4: à l'env, rang 5: à l'end, rang 6: à l'env. Bon tricot!
