Inc 1 st on each side of st with marker
Inc by making 1 YO. On next round K the YOs to make holes.

When switching ball with Polaris, split the old strand in two on the last 15 cm – cut off one part, do the same on the new strand. Place the first and last 15 cm on top of each other so that the yarn is the normal thickness and continue to work – this is done to make the strand switch invisible in the yarn.

Worked in the round on circular needle, top down. Beg round = in the side. Cast on 46-48-50-52-54-56 sts on circular needle size 15 mm with medium grey. P 1 round and K 1 round. Then work an eyelet row to thread the twined string through as follows: * 1 YO, K 2 tog *, repeat from *-* the entire round. K 1 round while insert 1 marker in 12th-12th-13th-13th-14th-14th st and in 35th-36th-38th-39th-41st-42nd st on needle (= mid front and mid back).
Continue in the round in stocking st and inc 1 st on each side of K st with marker mid front and mid back – READ INCREASE TIP (= 4 sts inc).
Inc like this every other round until piece measures 56-58-60-62-64-66 cm measured from the neck and along mid st at the front. REMEMBER KNITTING TENSION AND READ TIP FOR CHANGING YARN. Switch to dark grey. Continue inc mid front and mid back for 2 more round. Loosely cast off with K while AT THE SAME TIME inc mid front and mid back as before (cast off the inc sts as regular sts). Piece measures 58-60-62-64-66-68 cm measured from the neck and along mid st at the front.

Cut 2 lengths of 4 metres each with dark grey. Twine the strands tog until they resist, fold the string double so that it twines again. Make a knot at each end.
Beg mid front on poncho and thread tie up and down through eyelet row.

I love your patterns but rarely knit them because I can't follow charts- my eyes get fuzzy trying to read them. Will you ever write the pattern with written instructions also?

DROPS Design 31.07.2019 kl. 08:46:

Hi Sandra! It happens sometimes, especially if the pattern is very complicated. If you want to learn how to read patterns please see two of our lessons: How to read knitting diagrams and How to read crochet diagrams. I strongly recommend to try some DROPS-Along. There are easy pattern to follow for everyone! Every step in DROPS-along includes videos and pictures to help you finishing your work. Good luck!

Jag har en fråga gällande ökningarna vid markörerna, är det meningen att man ska flytta markörerna efter varje gång man ökar eller ska dem sitta kvar på den 14:e och 42:e maskan?

DROPS Design 02.04.2019 kl. 13:18:

Hei My. Merket skal sitte i den samme masken hele veien (midt foran og midt bak). Hver gang du øker får du altså fler masker mellom de 2 merkene. God fornøyelse

Ik bestelde de wol voor dit patroon, maar ontving enkel het lichte grijs en niet het antraciet. Kan dit alsnog worden nagestuurd?

DROPS Design 02.02.2019 kl. 18:39:

Dag Elsie,

Hiervoor kun je het beste even contact opnemen met de winkel waar je het garen gekocht hebt.

Cindy 13.06.2018 - 15:07:

I never like your patterns because they are often confusing.

DROPS Design 14.06.2018 kl. 08:40:

Dear Cindy, we are very sorry to hear this. Try to read the pattern completely to the end and then follow each as written, step by step. Should you have any question, please feel free to ask them here, and for any individual asssitance you are welcome to contact the store where you bought the yarn, even per mail or telephone. Happy knitting!

Hola..quiero tejer un poncho y la explicacion dice que debo usar aguja circular,acá es imposible de conseguir...cómo puedo hacer o reemplazarla?? gracias...espero respuesta

DROPS Design 29.04.2017 kl. 20:12:

Hola Carolina. Este modelo solo se puede trabajar con aguja circular debido al número de puntos. En otros casos se puede sustituir la aguja circular por agujas de doble punta para trabajar en redondo.

Szuplewski Brigitte 23.02.2017 - 19:04:

Bonjour, j'aurais aimé avoir les explications du poncho en français. Cordialement.

DROPS Design 24.02.2017 kl. 10:28:

Bonjour Madame Szuplewski, cliquez sur la flèche sous la photo et sélectionnez "français". Bon tricot!

Coby Vlakveld 04.09.2016 - 20:00:

Kan je deze poncho ook met gewone breinaalden breien. ipv een rondbreinaald.

DROPS Design 05.09.2016 kl. 12:20:

Hoi Coby. Ik zou het niet doen met dit patroon. Ik denk dat het te veel invloed hebt op de vorm.

Pashmina 16.08.2016 - 22:58:

Snygg sjal. Älskar sjalar.

Lotta Magnusson 03.08.2016 - 15:58:

Mycket fin, längtar efter att mönstret skall publiceras. Passar mig perfekt!
