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.

Worked in 2 parts that are sewn tog on the shoulders.

Worked back and forth on circular needle to make room for all the sts.
Cast on 72-76-80 sts on circular needle size 8 mm / US 11 with 1 thread Cloud or 2 threads Air. P 1 row from WS, then work as follows - from RS: 4-5-6 sts in GARTER ST - see explanation above, A.1 (= 18 sts), 5-6-7 sts in stockinette st, A.1, 5-6-7 sts in stockinette st, A.1, 4-5-6 sts in garter st. Continue pattern like this. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When piece measures 58-62-66 cm / 22 3/4"-24½"-26", bind off the middle 20-22-24 sts for neck and finish each shoulder separately. On next row towards the neck, dec 1 st = 25-26-27 sts remain on shoulder. bind off when piece measures 60-64-68 cm / 23½"-25 1/4"-26 3/4"and work the other shoulder the same way.

Cast on and work as on back piece until piece measures 52-56-60 cm / 20½"-22"-23½". Slip the middle 14-16-18 sts on a stitch holder for neck (continue the sts that do not fit A.1 in stockinette st). Then work each shoulder separately. Bind off at the beg of every row towards neck as follows: 2 sts 1 time and 1 st 2 times = 25-26-27 sts remain on shoulder. Bind off when piece measures 60-64-68 cm / 23½"-25 1/4"-26 3/4'' and work the other shoulder the same way.

Sew the shoulder seams.

Pick up 64-68-72 sts (includes sts on stitch holder) on a short circular needle size 8 mm / US 11. Work 1 ridge in GARTER ST – see explanation above, then work rib K 2/P 2. Continue rib until piece measures 15 cm / 6'', bind off with K over K and P over P.

Cut 2 lengths of 3 metres/ 3.25 yds each. Twine the strands tog until they resist, fold the string double so that it twines again. Make a knot at each end. Make 4 ties, and fasten in each side of poncho, approx. 30-32-34 cm / 11 3/4"-12½"-13½" from bottom edge.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

Splendide. J'ai réalisé ce modèle en AIR en recalculant le patron. Un pur bonheur. Facile à réaliser. Laine légère et chaude. J'adore la qualité AIR. Merci pour ces beaux modèles.

Bonsoir, je ne comprends pas la phase suivante: « rabattre au début de chaque rang côté encolure ainsi: 1 fois 2 m et 2 fois 1 m«  Faut il sur un premier rang rabattre 2 mailles puis sur les deux rangs suivants 1 maille à chaque fois ? Merci pour votre réponse

DROPS Design 22.12.2017 kl. 08:09:

Bonjour Anne, on rabat toujours les mailles au début d'un rang, ainsi, vous tricotez 1 rang en rabattant les 2 premières mailles, à la fin de ce rang, tournez et rabattez les 2 premières mailles (= 2 m rabattues de chaque côté), puis rabattez 1 maille au début des 4 rangs suivants (= 2 x 1 maille rabattues de chaque côté et 2+ 4 = 6 mailles rabattues au total de chaque côté pour l'encolure). Bon tricot!

Je souhaiterais avoir un renseignement au sujet du col. Y a t il vraiment que 64 mailles ou 64 plus 14 ? Merci à vous.

DROPS Design 07.11.2016 kl. 11:11:

Bonjour Mme Sobocinski, pour le col en taille S/M, on a 64 m au total (y compris les 14 m en attente), c'est-à-dire que vous reprenez les 14 m en attente de l'encolure devant et relevez 50 m autour de l'encolure= 64 m. Bon tricot!

There are no instructions for the edges

DROPS Design 09.09.2016 kl. 09:24:

Dear Angi, the edges on back piece and on front piece are the 4-5-6 sts in garter st worked on each side (= at beg + at the end of each row). Happy knitting!
