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

See diagrams A.1 to A.4. The diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from RS.

Piece is worked sideways and front and back on circular needle in 2 parts.

Cast on 112-120-126-132 sts on circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 with Air. Work 6 ridges in GARTER ST - see explanation above. Switch to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8 and work next row from RS as follows: 6 edge st in garter st, 45-53-59-65 sts in stockinette st, A.1 (= 13 sts), A.2 (= 30 sts), A.3 (= 16 sts) and 2 edge sts in garter st. Work back from WS the same way = 118-126-132-138 sts. Work next row as follows from RS: 6 edge sts in garter st, 45-53-59-65 sts in stockinette st, continue A.1 over the next 13 sts, work A.4 over the next 36 sts, continue A.3 over the next 16 sts and finish with 2 edge sts in garter st. Continue pattern like this. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When piece measures approx. 45-45-52-52 cm / 17 3/4"-17 3/4"-20½"-20½", insert 1 marker at the end of row from RS, i.e. if the knitting gauge is kept vertically, there should now remain 8 cm / 3 1/8'' in size S/M + L/XL before finishing with one whole repetition of A.4 vertically and 9 cm / 3½'' in size XXL + XXXL before finishing with half a repetition of A.4 vertically – i.e. 8-8-9-9 cm / 3"-3"-3½"-3½" remain before piece measures 53-53-61-61 cm / 21"-21"-24"-24" (= mid front).
Now bind off for neck at beg of every row from WS as follows: bind off 3 sts 1 time, 2 sts 2 times and 1 st 3 times = 108-116-122-128 sts. Continue pattern as before with 1 edge st in garter st towards the neck until piece measures 8-8-9-9 cm / 3"-3"-3½"-3½" from marker and insert 1 new marker (= mid front). Work until piece measures 2-2-3-3 cm / 3/4"-3/4"-1"-1" from marker mid front.
Now cast on sts for neck at the end of every row from RS as follows: Cast on 1 st 3 times, 2 sts 2 times and 3 sts 1 time = 118-126-132-138 sts on needle (piece measures now approx. 16-16-18-18 cm / 6 1/4"-6 1/4"-7"-7" from first marker (= neck). Continue pattern over all sts as before until piece measures approx. 102-102-118-118 cm / 40"-40"-46½"-46½" – finish after one whole repetition of A.4 vertically (= 6-6-7-7 repetitions in total with A.4 vertically). Work 1 row from RS as before but work the 6 sts in each cable K tog two by two = 112-120-126-132 sts remain on needle. Switch to circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7, work 6 ridges and bind off with K from RS (make sure to avoid a tight bind-off edge).

Cast on and work as front piece. When binding off for neck, this is done the same way but bind off like this: bind off 1 sts 1 time and 2 sts 1 time = 115-123-129-135 sts on needle. When 6-6-7-7 cm / 2½"-2½"-2 3/4"-2 3/4" have been worked from marker mid back, cast on new sts for neck the same way as on front piece but cast on as follows: Cast on 2 sts 1 time and 1 sts 1 time = 118-126-132-138 sts on needle. Then continue the same way as on front piece.

Sew the 2 parts tog on the shoulder - sew edge to edge in outer loops of edge sts so that the seam is flat. Sew if needed a little stitch in each side approx. 30-35 cm / 11 3/4"-13 3/4" from shoulder and down.

Pick up from RS approx. 68 to 78 sts around the neck on a short circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7. K 1 round while inc evenly to 96-96-104-112 sts (divisible by 4). Work rib in the round (= K 2/P 2). When rib measures 10 cm / 4'', inc every other 2 K sts to 3 K sts = 108-108-117-126 sts. When rib measures 18 cm / 7'', inc the remaining 2 K sts to 3 K sts = 120-120-130-140 sts. Continue in the round with K 3/P 2 until neck measures approx. 20-22-22-24 cm / 8"-8 3/4"-8 3/4"-9½ and loosely bind off with K over K and P over P. Fold the neck down.

Use a cardboard piece or similar measuring approx. 15 cm / 6''. Twine the yarn 25 times around this (or do desired thickness). Use another strand to fasten tightly around the strands in one end. Use another strand and thread through loop now made at the top of tassel and use strand to fasten the tassel to the poncho. Cut the strands in the other end of tassel. Fasten one tassel in each corner on poncho (= 4 tassels).


All measurements in charts are in cm.

Work next row from RS as follows: 6 edge st in garter st, 45-53-59-65 sts in stockinette st, A.1 (= 13 sts), A.2 (= 30 sts), A.3 (= 16 sts) and 2 edge sts in garter st. Work back from WS the same way What does it mean by "work back from the WS the same way "? Does it mean knit 6 edge st in garter st, then in stockinette st, then A1, A2 and A3 respectively?

DROPS Design 28.01.2019 kl. 11:09:

Dear Sharon, from WS you will work: 2 sts garter st, A.3, A.2, A.1, stocking st, 6 sts in garter st - read now diagrams from the left towards the right (on every row from WS). Happy knitting!

Bonjour, il y a un détail que je n'arrive à comprendre Selon les explications, je démarre mon travail en cotes mousse puis je continue en faisant les différents diagrammes, or sur la photo les torsades sont plus hautes. Ne devrais je pas démarrer A4 vers 30cm de hauteur?

DROPS Design 04.10.2018 kl. 10:27:

Bonjour Mme Zimmermann, après les côtes mousse, on tricote le 1er rang de A.1, A.2 (on augmente le nombre de mailles dans A.2 pour les torsades de A.4) et A.3, puis le rang suivant sur l'envers (= 2ème rang de A.1 et A.3, 2ème et dernier rang de A.2). Au rang suivant, on tricote A.1, A.4 au-dessus de A.2 et A.3 comme avant. Bon tricot!

Carmen Couture 23.08.2018 - 03:15:

Bonjour, que signifie la case noire qui indique "pas de maille, sauter cette case", que dois-je faire à cet endroit. Merci!

DROPS Design 23.08.2018 kl. 08:45:

Bonjour Carmen. La case noire représente une maille qui a été diminuée avant. Vous devez sauter cette case et tricotez la première maille sur l’aiguille gauche selon le symbole suivant. En ce cas, si vous êtes sur l’endroit vous travaillez la maille à l’envers ; sur l’envers, vous travaillez la maille à l’endroit. Bon tricot !

Modèle magnifique. Je lai fait pour ma fille de 11 ans.

Petra Stammkötter 28.12.2017 - 18:03:

Hallo die Frage hat sich erledigt, ich hatte ein Brett vor dem Kopf. Trotzdem vielen Dank :-)

Petra Stammkötter 27.12.2017 - 14:49:

Hallo, die MP stimmt soweit. Allerdings bin ich nun beim Muster A4 bei R29 angelangt und habe 15 cm in der Höhe erreicht. Sind im Diagramm nur Hin-R eingezeichnet oder auch die RR? Ich würde das Teil gerne stricken, aber so funktioniert es scheinbar nicht. Vielleicht können Sie mir weiter helfen. Vielen Dank.

DROPS Design 02.01.2018 kl. 08:53:

Liebe Frau Stammkötter, Diagram zeigt alle Reihen, dh die Hin- sowie die Rückreihen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Caroline 19.08.2017 - 09:50:

Ik begrijp "geen steek, sla dit vierkant over" niet... worden deze 2 steken dan afgenomen en niet gebreid?

DROPS Design 20.08.2017 kl. 22:14:

Hoi Caroline, Nee, je neemt de steken niet af maar je gaat gewoon verder met de steken die volgen op een zwart blokje. (Later in het telpatroon zijn er meerderingen, waardoor die blokjes weer opgevuld worden met steken)

Grand Véronique 11.08.2017 - 14:21:

Bonjour, je débute sur vos diagrammes et j'ai du mal , pouvez-vous me conseiller. Pour le A1 le diagramme montre t'il que les rangs aller ?

DROPS Design 11.08.2017 kl. 14:36:

Bonjour Mme Grand, les diagrammes montrent tous les rangs du point fantaisie, vus sur l'endroit. Commencez en bas à droite du diagramme et lisez les rangs sur l'endroit de droite à gauche, et les rangs sur l'envers de gauche à droite. 1 case = 1 m x 1 rang. Bon tricot!

Nancy 07.03.2017 - 21:18:

Ik ga beginnen aan de hoge col,maar wat bedoelen jullie met 2r,om en om en na 18 cm met de overgebleven delen 2 r totv3 r?

DROPS Design 08.03.2017 kl. 13:47:

Hoi Nancy. Je breit boordsteek 2 r, 2 av. Je meerdert dan elke tweede 2 r naar 3 r (dus je hebt 2 r, 2 av, 3 r, 2 av, 2 r enzovoort). En bij 18 cm meerder je de overgebleven 2 r naar 3 r.

Birgitte Linnet 01.03.2017 - 21:48:

Jeg forstår ikke hvad jeg skal i diagram A4, hvor der står ingen m, spring over denne rude!

DROPS Design 02.03.2017 kl. 09:15:

Hej Birgitte, du hopper bare over til den anden side, det vil sige du strikke 12 vrangmasker på første pind imellem snoningerne. Bare følg diagrammet - god fornøjelse!
