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.11. In diagram A.1 to A.7 work pattern as follows: Work row 1, 2, 8, 9, 10, 13 and 14 in sc, work the remaining rows in dc. Work ch in each corner in the same color as last st before ch.
Work diagram A.8 to A.11 in dc.

COLOR PATTERN:
When changing color work as follows: Work last dc with first color but wait with last pull through, switch to next color and work last pull through, then work next st. When working with two colors, place strand on the color not used over sts from previous row, work around the strand so that it is hidden and follows in the round (i.e. pattern on RS and WS will be the same, there will not be any long strand seen from WS). Make sure that the unworked strands do not tighten the piece.
Replace first dc/sc with ch - READ CROCHET INFO, if last dc/sc on previous row and first dc/sc on next row are different color work last dc/sc as follows: Work last dc/sc with first color but wait with last pull through, switch to next color and work last pull through, 1 sl st in ch at beg of row, then work ch (= beg of row).

CROCHET INFO:
Work piece back and forth but work piece tog at the end of row as follows:
Beg every row with sc with 1 ch (= first sc) and finish with 1 sl st in first ch at beg of row, turn piece.
Beg every row with dc with 3 ch (= first dc) and finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch at beg of row, turn piece.

Is it possible to make this in a DK weight yarn. Not sure how the size would be as I don't work much with bulky yarn. Much appreciated.

DROPS Design 12.03.2018 kl. 09:57:

Dear Theresa, you would have to recalculate entirely the pattern since your gauge will be completely different. Please contact the store where you bought your yarn for any further individual assistance. Happy crocheting!

Heeft u een uitgebreidere beschrijving van deze poncho want ik begrijo echt niet hoe ik het moet lezen. Andere patronen worden vaak regel na regel (toer na toer) uitgelegd en dat mij meer helpen. Met vriendelijke groet, Corine Timmermans

Hello! I’m confused. In pattern info stays: A.1 to A.7 work pattern as follows: Work row 1, 2, 8, 9, 10, 13 and 14 in sc, work the remaining rows in dc. And in SQUARE 2 (uni colored): When A.4 to A.7 have been worked 1 time vertically, there are 144 dc on row. So, is the last row 14 with sc or dc in SQUARE 2? Where is the mistake?

DROPS Design 27.04.2017 kl. 09:54:

Dear Mrs Järvensivu, thanks for your feedback, our Designteam will check. Thanks in advance for your patience.

Mervi Järvensivu 19.04.2017 - 19:59:

Minkä vuoksi 2.Ruutu (yksivärinen) on maininta että työssä on lopussa 144 PYLVÄSTÄ, vaikka mallivirkkausinfossa on: Piirrosten A.1-A.7 mallivirkkaus virkataan seuraavasti: 1., 2., 8., 9., 10., 13. ja 14. krs virkataan kiintein silmukoin, muut kerrokset virkataan pylväin. ELI viimeinen krs eli krs 14 on kiinteitä silmukoita.

DROPS Design 17.05.2017 kl. 16:38:

Olet aivan oikeassa, viimeisen kerroksen jälkeen työssä on jäljellä 144 kiinteää silmukkaa. Teemme ohjeeseen korjauksen.

I am finding your patterns most difficult to understand. Women who have been crocheting for over 50 years tell me they will not touch your Patterns because they are so HARD to understand. While I love your product and patterns you need to find a better way to translate/brake down the instructions. I need to know how to do the edge at the top and the edge at the bottom, the instructions are too confusing! Thank you for any advice you can send my way!

DROPS Design 14.11.2016 kl. 09:02:

Dear Mrs Collin, for the edge at the top, you will first crochet a round with sc and ch as explain (= starting in the middle of a square 2, with medium grey) then work diagram A.8. Work the edge at the bottom starting in the middle of a square 2 and working A.9 with A.10/A.11 around tip on mid front and mid back (1 square in A.8 - A.11 = 1 tr). Happy crocheting!

Sandra 06.11.2016 - 22:56:

Ich habe ein Verstaendnisproblem mit dem Diagramm: sind die 3 LM immer auf der gleichen Seite (A1) ? Wenn ich die Arbeit umdrehe, habe ich dann also abwechselnd die 3LM mal am Anfang, mal am Ende? Und muss ich am anderen Ende die jeweilige fM mit einer LM ersetzen? Ist also die A1 erste Reihe 3lM - fM, fM in Bordeaux und die 2. Reihe LM - fM - fM - 3LM ? Danke!

DROPS Design 07.11.2016 kl. 10:44:

Liebe Sandra, bei der Hinreihe häkeln Sie: A.1, A.2 x 2 und A.3, dh die 3 lM sind zwischen A.1/A.2, A.2/A.2 und A.2/A.3. Bei der Rückreihe lesen Sie dann von li nach re, dh: A.3, A.2x2, A.1, die 3 lM sind jetzt zwischen A.3/A.2, A.2/A.2, A.2/A.1. Die erste fM ist mit 1 Lm ersetzt (siehe "HÂKELINFO").

Angelique 07.10.2016 - 13:44:

Wie fällt der denn Poncho aus? Ich trage normalerweise ne M reicht dann Größe S/M oder lieber dann L?

DROPS Design 07.10.2016 kl. 14:14:

Liebe Angelique, in der Massskizze finden Sie am Ende der Anleitung finden, sie enthät alle Massen für jede Grösse. Am besten vergleichen Sie mit einem anderen Poncho, so können Sie dann die passenden Grösse finden. Mehr können Sie hier lesen.
