Then work in stocking st while inc on every other row until finished measurements - READ INCREASE TIP above. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION and switch to a long circular needle when needed. Work until piece measures approx. 37-39-41-43-45-47 cm measured from 1 marker (= mid back) and straight down. On next row K and loosely cast off with double yarn. To avoid a tight edge you can use a larger needle or make a YO that is cast off approx. every 3rd st, the edge should not be tight. Fasten off.

Buongiorno, dopo lo scollo a coste e la costa legaccio in quale posizione vanno effettuati i due aumenti nella maglia rasata?

DROPS Design 30.10.2018 kl. 09:40:

Buongiorno Claudia. Deve aumentare prima e dopo il secondo e terzo segno inseriti nel lavoro, seguendo le indicazioni del suggerimento per gli aumenti, che trova all’inizio delle spiegazioni. Buon lavoro!

Hei! Haluaisin hieman tarkennusta ohjeeseen. Olen tekemässä S-kokoista ponchoa. Silmukoita on alussa 100. Mihin silmukkamäärään päädytään kun lisäykset ovat valmiit? Kiitos vastauksesta!

DROPS Design 12.06.2017 kl. 17:09:

Silmukkamäärä riippuu siitä miten monta kerrosta neulotaan. Mikäli neuletiheytesi vastaa ohjeen neuletiheystä, silmukoita olisi lopuksi n. 260-264.

I love this poncho. To me it looks so 'snug' which is why I called it that name. I feel the cold around my shoulders and neck... this is so easy to wear. I would love the pattern. by the way I'm from Australia!
