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.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.5. Diagrams A.1a and A.1b show how round beg and ends.

CROCHET INFO:
Beg every tr round with 3 ch (these ch do not replaces first tr). At the end of round work 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round.
NOTE: When working A.5 beg round with 3 ch. At the end of round work 1 tr in first st worked on round (i.e. st with the 3 ch in), then 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of round.

WORK 2 DTR TOG:
Work 1 dtr around ch-space below but wait with last pull through (= 2 loops on hook), skip 1 dc and work 1 dtr around next ch-space but on last pull through, pull yarn through all loops on hook.

WORK 3 DTR TOG:
Work 1 dtr but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), work 1 more dtr but wait with last pull through (= 3 loops on hook), work 1 more dtr but on last pull through, pull yarn through all loops on hook.

MESH PATTERN:
ROUND 1: * Start with 1st row of A.5, work the 4 tr in first/next tr with marker, work (1 ch, ship 1 tr, 1 tr in next tr) until 1 tr remains before next marker, work 1 ch, skip next tr *, repeat from *-* 3 times more. There is now 4 repeats of A.5 on round.
ROUND 2: * Work A.5 around first/next ch-space with marker, then work 1 tr in next tr, 1 ch, 1 tr around first ch-space, (1 ch, skip 1 tr, 1 tr in next ch-space) until 1 ch-space remains before next repeat of A.5, work 1 ch, 1 tr in next tr *, repeat from *-* 3 times more.

ROUND 3: * Work A.5 around first/next ch-space with marker, then work (1 ch, skip 1 tr, 1 tr around next ch-space) until next repeat of A.5, 1 ch *, repeat from *-* 3 times more.
----------------------------------------------------------

PONCHO:
Worked in the round, top down. First inc mid front, mid back and on each shoulder, then inc only mid front and mid back.

Work 153-163-163 ch on hook size 4.5 mm with Paris and form a ring with 1 sl st. Work 3 ch – see CROCHET INFO! Then work 1 tr in each of the next 3-1-1 ch, * skip 1 ch, 1 tr in each of the next 5 ch *, repeat from *-* 24-26-26 more times on round = 128-136-136 tr + 3 ch on round. Now insert 4 markers from beg of round without working: Insert 1 marker in 1st tr on round (= mid back), skip 31-33-33 tr, insert 1 marker in next tr (= shoulder), skip 31-33-33 tr, insert 1 marker in next tr (= mid front), skip 31-33-33 tr, insert 1 marker in next tr (= shoulder), there are now 31-33-33 tr between last marker and beg of round.
Now work MESH PATTERN - see explanation above. When 1st-3rd round have been worked, repeat 2nd and 3rd round until 6-7-8 rounds with mesh pattern have been worked - see diagram A.4a and A.4b to see how to work the whole inc in each side of A.5. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! Piece measures approx. 8-9-10 cm.

Work next round as follows AT THE SAME TIME dec 0-8-8 tr evenly (= 0-4-4 tr dec on each side of mid back and mid front): *Work (2 tr, 3 ch, 2 tr) around ch-space (= mid back on 1st repetition and mid front on 2nd repetition), then work 1 tr in every tr and 1 tr around every ch until next inc tr-group, work 3 tr around ch-space (= shoulder), work 1 tr in every tr and 1 tr around every ch until inc tr-group (mid front on 1st repetition and mid back on 2nd repetition)*, repeat from *-* 1 more time.

There are now 117-125-133 tr between ch-space mid front and mid back (= 234-250-266 tr in total on round + 2 ch-space). Cut the yarn. NOTE: Then do not inc on each shoulder but only mid front and mid back on poncho.

Work 1 sl st in the 10th st from ch-space mid back and work pattern as follows: Work A.1a (shows how round beg and end, does not replace first st), A.2a (= 8 tr) 13-14-15 times in width, A.3a (= inc mid front), continue with A.2a 14-15-16 times in width, A.3a (= inc mid back) and A.2a 1 time in all sizes. On 4th round in A.3a there are 133-141-149 tr between ch-space mid front and mid back. Continue with pattern as before (there is now room for 16-17-18 repetitions A.2a on each side of A.3a). On 10th round inc 8 tr evenly on each side of A.3a (= 16 tr in total on round) = 163-171-179 tr on each side of ch-space mid front and mid back. Continue with pattern as before, but now work A.1b over A.1a, A.2b over A.2a and A.3b over A.3a (there is now room for 19-20-21 repetitions A.2 on each side of A.3). On 4th round inc 3 tr evenly between every repetitions of A.3 (i.e. 6 tr in total on round) = 169-177-185 tr between each ch-space mid front and mid back. Continue pattern (there is now room for 21-22-23 repetitions A.2 on each side of A.3). When entire diagram has been worked vertically, piece measures 36-37-38 cm. Cut the yarn.

Now work mesh pattern as at beg of piece. Beg in ch-space mid back, and work mesh pattern from 3rd round in mesh pattern. Repeat 2nd and 3rd round until 6-8-10 rounds in total have been worked (incl last round in A.2 and A.3).
Work next round as follows: * Work (2 tr, 3 ch, 2 tr) around ch-space (= mid back), then work 1 tr in every tr and 1 tr around every ch until next repeat of A.5 *, repeat from *-* 1 more time = 193-209-225 tr between ch-space mid front and mid back. Cut the yarn.

Now work pattern A.1a, A.2a and A.3a as follows:
Work 1 sl st in 12th tr from ch-space mid back and work pattern as follows: Work A.1a (shows how round beg and end, does not replace first st), A.2a until 2 tr remain before ch-space mid front, A.3a (= inc mid front), continue with A.2a until 2 tr remain before ch-space mid back, A.3a (= inc mid back) and A.2a 1 time in all sizes. When 4th row has been worked vertically, poncho measures 49-52-54 cm. Fasten off.

Louise 23.08.2019 - 12:34:

I have done A. 5 TWICE and I only have 99 stitches when the pattern says 117. First time using diagram so not sue what A4a and b are showing.... Are they showing an increase on each row before and after each the next A5??

DROPS Design 23.08.2019 kl. 14:57:

Dear Louise, A.4 a shows how to work the new stitches worked in A.5 on previous round (before A.5) and A.4b shows how to work the new stitches worked in A.5 on previous round (after A.5). read more about diagrams here. Happy crocheting!

Z ilu oczek jest zrobiona gora tego ponto azurowe prosze mi napisac

DROPS Design 08.08.2019 kl. 20:50:

Witaj Iwono! Na początku na szydełku nr 4,5 należy wykonać 153-163-163 oł (w zależności od rozmiaru: odpowiednio S/M – L/XL – XXL/XXXL). Pozdrawiamy!

Gabi 22.07.2019 - 09:55:

I’ve just started row 8 of A.2b (5 DCs, 4Chs). It seems to be making the whole thing scrunch up as if there aren’t enough stitches in each repetition. Am I following the pattern correctly?

DROPS Design 06.08.2019 kl. 09:12:

Dear Gabi, make sure you have the correct number of A.2b in width, and make also sure that the chain stitches have the right size to avoid them to either tighten or enlarge piece. Happy crocheting!

CJ 18.07.2019 - 00:33:

Im not sure this patten is written all too well. After mesh is done 4 chain and then 8 dc in same stitch then back to the 4th chain for a sl st - so is this basically a massive popcorn stitch? The pattern also doesn’t state for me to sl st into the next. Technically. According to the pattern I do another ch4 on top of the (popcorn) stitch I just made.

DROPS Design 18.07.2019 kl. 11:19:

Dear CJ, after mesh pattern is done you work the next round decreasing 8 dc evenly - read here how to decrease stitches evenly. Happy crocheting!

CJ 17.07.2019 - 13:48:

Why is this both a written pattern and graph. Please can you convert the graph part to written?

DROPS Design 17.07.2019 kl. 15:24:

Dear CJ, we cannot convert the diagrams into written pattern, but you will find here how to read crochet diagrams, it can be a good idea to cut them and put them together. Happy crocheting!

Flo 15.07.2019 - 15:08:

Do you have any patterns that have row by row directions? charts are confusing?

DROPS Design 15.07.2019 kl. 16:22:

Dear Flo, some oldier patterns might have less diagrams - you will find how to read crochet diagrams here - and see videos related to the pattern to see how to crochet diagrams. Your DROPS store will assist you learning to read diagram, even per mail or telephone, do not hesitate to contact them. Happy crocheting!

Die Anleitung ist sehr kompliziert geschrieben , nach zwei Abend Kopfzerbrechen , geb ich auf . Das ist nicht das erstmal das ich mit euren Anleitungen Schwierigkeiten habe und eigentlich bin ich eine sehr geübte handarbeiterin. Nicht nur das man ständig hin und her blättern muss , ist das mit 2a und 2b sehr verwirrend geschrieben .

DROPS Design 15.07.2019 kl. 11:39:

Liebe Beatrix, Die DROPS-Muster werden von Tausenden und Abertausenden Menschen auf der ganzen Welt gestrickt und gehäkelt. Wir verstehen jedoch, dass in bestimmten Ländern mit anderen Strick- / Häkeltraditionen als in Skandinavien unsere Muster möglicherweise anders geschrieben sind als in einigen anderen Ländern. Natürlich möchten wir, dass alle unsere Muster verstehen. Aus diesem Grund haben wir eine umfangreiche Bibliothek mit Lernvideos sowie schrittweisen Lektionen erstellt, in denen erklärt wird, wie wir die verwendeten Techniken befolgen und wie die Diagramme in unseren Mustern gelesen werden. Probieren Sie es aus!

Michelle 08.07.2019 - 08:52:

In de teltekening a3a staan in toer 4 na de 3 losse 5 stokjes in de l-lus. De rest heeft 4 stokjes. Moeten dit niet ook 4 stokjes zijn?

DROPS Design 12.07.2019 kl. 08:57:

Dag Michelle,

Nee, dit zijn inderdaad 5 stokjes om goed uit te komen met de steken in de volgende toer.

Jojo 26.05.2019 - 21:28:

Bonjour je ne comprend pas le rang 3 est ce possible qu'il y ait une erreur j'essai de le faire et ,ça ne fonctionne pas MERCI

DROPS Design 27.05.2019 kl. 11:47:

Bonjour Jojo, crochetez A.5 comme indiqué dans les diagrammes: au 2ème rang de A.5, crochetez au point de filet (= A.4a) jusqu'au coin, crochetez A.5 autour de l'arceau et continuez ensuite au point de filet (= cf A.4b après A.5) et continuez ainsi à chaque coin avec A.5 - le 3ème rang va se crocheter pareil: point de filet (A.4a) jusqu'au coin, A.5 dans le coin (= autour des 3 ml du 2ème rang), puis point de filet après A.5 (cf A.4b). Bon crochet!

Hulya 21.05.2019 - 16:57:

After the mesh pattern do i need to stop increasing for shoulders? Thank you ...

DROPS Design 22.05.2019 kl. 08:23:

Dear Hulya, correct, when mesh pattern is worked (= 234-250-266 sts + 2 ch-spaces on the round), you continue without increasing on shoulders, only increasing on mid front and mid back. Happy crocheting!
