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

See diagrams A.1 to A.5. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

Worked back and forth on circular needle in 2 parts and sewn tog when finished.

Cast on 99-107-115-123 sts (includes 1 edge st in garter st in each side) on circular needle size 6 mm / US 10 with Air. Work pattern as follows: 1 edge st in GARTER ST – see explanation above, A.1 (= 5 sts), A.2 (= 8 sts) 11-12-13-14 times in width. A.3 (= 4 sts), 1 edge st in garter st. NOTE: Continue edge sts in garter st until finished measurements, they become part of the seed st in pattern. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When entire A.1 to A.3 have been worked 1 time vertically, continue with pattern as follows from RS: Work A.4 (NOTE: 1st st in diagram = edge st), work 79-87-95-103 sts in stockinette st, work A.5 over the last 10 sts on row (NOTE: Last st in diagram = edge st). Continue like this until piece measures 30 cm / 11 3/4'' from cast-on edge. At the end of next row from WS, cast on 1 new st (marks vent) = 100-108-116-124 sts. Work the new st in garter st. I.e. there are now 2 edge sts in garter st at beg of row from RS. When piece measures 58-63-69-74 cm / 22 3/4"-24 3/4"-27"-29", work pattern, beg from row marked with star in diagram as follows: Work 2 edge sts in garter st, A.1, A.2 11-12-13-14 times in width, A.3, 1 edge st in garter st. When diagram has been worked vertically, repeat the last 2 rows in diagram until piece measures 66-71-77-82 cm / 26"-28"-30½"-32 1/4". Bind off sts with K over P and P over K.
Cast on and work another part the same way but reversed.

See measurement chart. Sew seam A and B with grafting/kitchener stitches. Then sew seam C and D in outer loop of edge sts. There is now a 30 cm / 11 3/4'' vent in one side and a vent along the entire other side. Fasten off.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

= K from RS, P from WS
= P from RS, K from WS
= 1 YO between 2 sts On next row P the YO. It should make a hole.
= K 2 tog
= slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso
= slip 1 st as if to K, K 2 tog, psso
= 2nd time patterns A.1 to A.3 are worked, beg on this row in pattern

Malheureusement, dans cette version du patron, le diagramme (pour les points de fantaisie) n'est pas indiqué. Les cases qui devraient l'indiquer sont toutes en blanc. Est-ce possible d'obtenir ce diagramme? Merci

DROPS Design 29.05.2017 kl. 09:02:

Bonjour Danièle, les diagrammes pour ce modèle sont complets et bien visibles - vous trouverez la légende des symboles juste au-dessus. Bon tricot!

Sarah LEBIGOT 10.01.2017 - 00:11:

Bonjour, Pour la seconde partie, il est indiqué de la faire en sens inverse et je ne comprend pas comment lire les diagrammes en sens inverse? Merci pour vos explications.

DROPS Design 10.01.2017 kl. 09:47:

Bonjour Mme Lebigot, la 2ème partie doit se faire en miroir, c'est-à-dire tricotez les diagrammes comme la 1ère partie, mais montez la maille de la fente de l'autre côté pour avoir 2 m point mousse en fin de rang sur l'endroit et plus en début de rang sur l'endroit. Bon tricot!

LeeAnn 15.09.2016 - 16:43:

Ok this still did not help me please type out how to start the second piece where in the pattern chart is it started ????? Sorry to be such a pain but I have already ripped out second piece 3 times and am frustrated.

DROPS Design 15.09.2016 kl. 17:25:

Dear LeeAnn, work A.1,A.2, A.3 as on 1st piece, but after they have been worked 1 time in height, work A.4 and A.5 reversed, ie instead of working A.4, stocking st, A.5, work from RS on 2nd piece: A.5, stocking st and A.4. When piece measures 30 cm, cast on 1 st at the end of next row from RS (instead of from WS) an work this st in garter st. Hope this will help. Remember you can also get further individual assistance from the store where you bought your yarn. Happy knitting!

LeeAnn 15.09.2016 - 15:14:

I am even more confused regarding so classy please read all my questions which basically the same except the last one being is the second piece starting with RS or WS. the answer I got was not answering my question but rather telling me how to do the second piece . there were 2 answers telling me how to do the second piece both different , so which one is correct lPease advise how to correctly do second piece and if I am starting the chart on the RS or the WS Thank you

DROPS Design 15.09.2016 kl. 16:12:

Dear LeeAnn, you are right, sorry for very first answer, at the beg of 2nd piece, work as first piece, but then work reversed all inc/moss sts so that both pieces will be mirrored. Read diagram from the bottom corner on the right side towards the left from RS and from the left towards the right from WS, ie as on 1st piece. Happy knitting!

LeeAnn 15.09.2016 - 03:19:

I am making the So classy poncho, and I know the second piece is worked in reverse, does that also mean I will be starting the chart with the wrong side of the garment?

DROPS Design 15.09.2016 kl. 08:59:

Dear LeeAnn, on 2nd piece work diagrams A.1-A.3 as for 1st piece, but when you work A.4 and A.5, work A.5 over the first 10 sts, stocking st and finish with A.4. Then cast on 1 st at the end of row from RS (instead of at the end of row from WS). Then work A.1,A.2 and A.3 with 1 st in garter st at the beg of row and 2 sts in garter st at the end of row. Happy knitting!

LeeAnn 01.09.2016 - 04:38:

I am confused for the second piece of the poncho, the pattern says Cast on and work the same way but reversed. So where am I starting and what is meant by reversed? Thank You.

DROPS Design 01.09.2016 kl. 10:01:

Dear LeeAnn, when working reversed you will work 2nd piece as follows from RS: 1 edge st, A.3, repeat A.2, A.1 and 1 edge st - then when casting on 1 st when piece measures 30, cast on at the end of a row from RS (instead of from WS). Happy knitting!

Thank you so much for the wonderful pattern!! The yarn was so light with heavenly texture. When ordering yarn from you for size in S-M to be on the safe side I ordered 50 gr more than you recommended. But actually used only 250gr for the whole Poncho, 50gr less was suggested. Yay!!!! It's so-so soft and Weat - such a lovely natural color. Love it!

Claudia 30.05.2016 - 03:02:

I am a bit confused about beginning this pattern, is row 1 and 2 knitted to make the edge or does it start with the A1 and A2 combination. Also A1 =5 stitch and A2 is 8 therefore if cast on 107 I cannot have 12 times A1 and A2 in the width since (5+8) x 12 =156. Is that correct?

DROPS Design 30.05.2016 kl. 10:32:

Dear Claudia, you work on 1st round diagrams A.1, A.2 and A.3 with 1 edge st in garter st, ie in size M: 1 edge st, A.1 1 time in width (= 5 sts), repeat A.2 a total of 12 times in width (= 12 x 8 sts), A.3 1 time in width (= 4 sts) and 1 edge st in garter st = 107 sts. Happy knitting!

Tonje 14.03.2016 - 15:20:

Da forstår jeg ikke når A2 og A3 skal strikkes?

DROPS Design 15.03.2016 kl. 15:52:

Hej Tonje, jo du strikker A1 en gang i bredden, A2 11-12-13-14 ganger i bredden og sidst A3 en gang i bredden. Spørg gerne hos din lokale DROPS forhandler hvis du har købt garnet der. God fornøjelse!
