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

CROCHET INFO:
Beg every dc round with 3 ch (these ch do not replaces first dc). 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 dc 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 TR TOG:
Work 1 tr around ch-space below but wait with last pull through (= 2 loops on hook), skip 1 sc and work 1 tr around next ch-space but on last pull through, pull yarn through all loops on hook.

WORK 3 TR TOG:
Work 1 tr but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), work 1 more tr but wait with last pull through (= 3 loops on hook), work 1 more tr 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 dc in first/next dc with marker, work (1 ch, ship 1 dc, 1 dc in next dc) until 1 dc remains before next marker, work 1 ch, skip next dc *, 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 dc in next dc, 1 ch, 1 dc around first ch-space, (1 ch, skip 1 dc, 1 dc in next ch-space) until 1 ch-space remains before next repeat of A.5, work 1 ch, 1 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* 3 times more.

ROUND 3: * Work A.5 around first/next ch-space with marker,
then work (1 ch, skip 1 dc, 1 dc 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/US 7 with Paris and form a ring with 1 sl st. Work 3 ch – see CROCHET INFO! Then work 1 dc in each of the next 3-1-1 ch, * skip ch 1, 1 dc in each of the next 5 ch *, repeat from *-* 24-26-26 more times on round = 128-136-136 dc + 3 ch on round. Now insert 4 markers from beg of round without working: Insert 1 marker in 1st dc on round (= mid back), skip 31-33-33 dc, insert 1 marker in next dc (= shoulder), skip 31-33-33 dc, insert 1 marker in next dc (= mid front), skip 31-33-33 dc, insert 1 marker in next dc (= shoulder), there are now 31-33-33 dc 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 GAUGE! Piece measures approx. 8-9-10 cm / 3"-3½"-4''.

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

There are now 117-125-133 dc between ch-space mid front and mid back (= 234-250-266 dc 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 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 dc) 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 dc 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 dc evenly on each side of A.3a (= 16 dc in total on round) = 163-171-179 dc 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 dc evenly between every repetitions of A.3 (i.e. 6 dc in total on round) = 169-177-185 dc 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 / 14 1/4"-14½"-15". 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 (includes last round in A.2 and A.3).
Work next round as follows: * Work (2 dc, ch 3, 2 dc) around ch-space (= mid back), then work 1 dc in every dc and 1 dc around every ch until next rep of A.5 *, repeat from *-* 1 more time = 193-209-225 dc 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 dc 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 dc remain before ch-space mid front, A.3a (= inc mid front), continue with A.2a until 2 dc 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 / 19 1/4"-20½"-21 1/4". Fasten off.

I love this pretty poncho but I can't understand how to do A1, A2, and A3, the pattern isn't clear how they work together, please help

DROPS Design 19.03.2019 kl. 11:27:

Dear Mrs Taylor, this lesson explains how to read crochet diagrams; and how to "Several different diagrams worked consecutively on the row/round:". Happy crocheting!

Linda Klinkenbijl 27.02.2019 - 16:57:

Two times chain 3 only? Pattern says 3: Sc-ch3, sc-ch3, sc-ch3, sc ... What is correct?

DROPS Design 28.02.2019 kl. 09:18:

Dear Mrs Klinkenbijl, oops you are right, I missed the 3rd symbol :) you will have (1 sc, 3 ch) x 3, 1 sc around the same chain-space. Happy crocheting!

Linda Klinkenbijl 27.02.2019 - 13:17:

At A.2b, the 7th row the pattern tels me to work 1sc around the chain space, 3ch. Those last 3ch are they to indicate that my chain space is 3 chains long, or is it a: sc+chain 3?

DROPS Design 27.02.2019 kl. 13:53:

Dear Mrs Klinkenbijl, in the 3-chain space between the 3 trebles worked tog on previous row work; 1 sc, 3 ch, 1 sc, 3 ch, 1 sc (= 2 chain spaces with each 3 chains). Happy crocheting!

Petra Blasberg 05.02.2019 - 12:10:

A.1a, A.2a und A.3a ist mir völlig schleierhaft. Die Anleitung ist nicht sehr verständlich und man muss ständig zwischen den Diagrammen hin und her schauen. Auf dem Foto sieht man nur eine Reihe Stäbchen nach dem ersten Netzmuster. In der Anleitung verstehe ich aber, das man 2 Reihen Stäbchen machen soll??? Und wie komme ich dann auf die 149 Stb zwischen den Lm-Bogen, wenn ich doch nur 16 mal 8 Stb häkeln soll??

DROPS Design 05.02.2019 kl. 13:25:

Liebe Frau Blasberg, gerne können Sie die unterschiedlichen Diagramme abschneiden und zusammenlegen, um sie besser zu folgen. Sie fangen mit 1 Runde Stäbchen, dann setzen Sie die Markierer (= ohne zu häkeln), und jetzt im NETZMMUSTER häkeln und die Diagramme anfangen. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Lena 11.01.2019 - 18:07:

153 luftmaskor men när första varvet är klart har jag luftmaskor kvar. Förstår inte varför. 3+1+1= 5 stolpar, hoppa över en luftmaska 5 stolpar 24 gånger är inte 153 utan 150. Vart gör jag av de 3 luftmaskorna från de 153. Lena

DROPS Design 16.01.2019 kl. 08:21:

Hei Lena. På starten av omgangen hekler du 1 stav i hver av de første 3 luftmaskene. Videre hekler du slik *hopp over 1 luftmaske, 1 stav i hver av de neste 5 luftmaskene* for hver *-* hekler du 5 staver, men du hekler over 6 av luftmaskene i luftmaskeringen (fordi fu hopper over 1 luftmaske hver gang). Dette gjentar du 24 ganger til = totalt 25 ganger. Du har da heklet over 150 av luftmaskene + de 3 luftmaskene du heklet i på starten av omgangen = 153 luftmasker heklet i, og 128 staver på omgangen (+ 3 luftmasker som du heklet helt på starten). God fornøyelse

Fritzi Goldberg 31.12.2018 - 02:28:

Is there any way to size this down for a ten year old?

DROPS Design 02.01.2019 kl. 10:58:

Dear Mrs Goldberg, we are unfortunately not able to adjust every pattern to every individual request, please feel free to contact your DROPS store - even per mail or telephone - for any individual assistance. Happy crocheting!

Hengie Hengelmann 04.09.2018 - 20:57:

Bonjour les explications et les diagrammes sont trop compliqués pour'une tricoteuse moyenne comme moi..j'ai abandonné le projet..dommage c'est un joli modèle

DROPS Design 06.09.2018 kl. 09:10:

Bonjour Mme Hengelmann, suivez bien les indications pas à pas, et, vous pouvez volontiers poser votre question ici, ou bien pour toute assistance personnelle, n'hésitez pas à contacter votre magasin DROPS, même par mail ou téléphone. Bon crochet!

Rianne 17.08.2018 - 13:40:

Hallo, ik ben bezig bij A.2b en A.3b in de vierde toer. Daar staat dat ik 3 stk moet meerderen en achteraf op 169 stk uit moet komen en er ruimte is voor 21 herhalingen van A.2. Dit klopt bij mij niet omdat bij het begin van A.2b ik 19 herhalingen had en 163 stk. In vier toeren zijn daar 9 stk bij gekomen (in A.3b) plus nog 3 extra meerderen. Hoe kan ik dan toch op 169 stk uitkomen? (Bovendien van 19 naar 21 herhalingen is toch ook 16 stk extra? moet het misschien 179 zijn?)

DROPS Design 20.08.2018 kl. 09:13:

Dag Rianne, Het was even een gepuzzel met het aantal steken, maar A.3 zelf wordt niet meegerekend in de telling van het aantal steken. Na een herhaling van A.3 plus de 6 meerderingen is er ruimte voor 2 extra herhalingen van A.2 tussen midden voor en midden achter.

Natalia 08.08.2018 - 15:42:

I was asked by a friend to translate diagram symbols from English American to Russian for her. I would like to ask, “What language is was translated from?”. Never have I seen such confusing instructions. I am not sure why the author decided to “invent a bicycle “ = new symbols to confuse the pattern users. It’s a beautiful poncho, but the pattern needs a thorough editing. I would not recommend it for beginners.

DROPS Design 08.08.2018 kl. 15:53:

Dear Natalia, all our patterns are translated from Norwegian, please feel free to check the original pattern. Each symbol used in the diagram is explained under diagram key - for any further individual assistance with diagrams you are welcome to contact your DROPS store. Happy crocheting!

Johanna Ruisaard-Hofman 27.07.2018 - 22:07:

Goede avond, net begonnen met de poncho 169-4. Voor mij de 1e keer een Drops Design. Maar loop gelijk spaak, wat wordtvver nu bedoeld met" haak dan 1 stokje in elke van de volgende 3-1-1 l???? ( 4e regel onder het woord Poncho) Ik hoor het graag, Groetjes Johanna

DROPS Design 28.07.2018 kl. 15:59:

Dag Johanna, De getallen met de streepsje ertussen staan voor de maten S/M – L/XL – XXL/XXXL. Dus in dit geval als er 3-1-1 staat betekent dat 3 voor maat S/M, 1 voor mat L/xL, enzovoort.
