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.
RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked back and forth):
1 ridge = Knit 2 rows.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.4. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern from the right side.

DECREASE TIP:
To work out how to decrease evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 112 stitches), minus the edge stitches (e.g. 18 stitches) and divide the remaining stitches by the number of stitches to be decreased (e.g. 11) = 8.5. In other words, in this example, work alternately every 7th and 8th stitch and every 8th and 9th stitch together. Do not decrease across the edge stitches.
----------------------------------------------------------

PONCHO:
The piece is worked back and forth on circular needle in 2 parts and is sewn together at the end.

FRONT PIECE:
Cast on a little loosely 110-126-144-160 stitches with circular needle SIZE 5.5 mm/US 9 / US 9 and Alpaca Bouclé. Work 5 RIDGES – see description above. The next row is worked as follows from the right side: A.1 (= 9 stitches), work A.2 over the next 92-108-126-142 stitches and finish with A.1 (= 9 stitches). Continue the pattern in this way until A.2 has been worked 1 time in height (A.1 continues over the outermost 9 stitches in each side until finished length). Knit 1 row from the right side where you decrease 11-11-13-13 stitches evenly spaced along the row – READ DECREASE TIP = 99-115-131-147 stitches on the needle. Knit 1 row from the wrong side.
The next row is worked as follows from the right side: Continue A.1 over the first 9 stitches, work A.3A over the next 80-96-112-128 stitches (= 5-6-7-8 repeats of 16 stitches), work A.3B (= 1 stitch) and continue A.1 over the last 9 stitches. Continue the pattern in this way. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When A.3 has been worked 1 time in height, work stockinette stitch with A.1 in each side as before. When the piece measures 30-32-34-36 cm / 11 3/4"-12½"-13½"-14 1/4" insert 1 marker at the beginning of the row (from the right side) – the marker marks the split.
When the piece measures 48-58-68-78 cm / 19"-22 3/4"-26 3/4"-30 3/4"' work the next row from the right side as follows: Continue A.1 as before, work A.4A over the next 80-96-112-128 stitches (= 5-6-7-8 repeats of 16 stitches), work A.4B (= 1 stitch) and continue A.1 as before. Continue the pattern in this way until A.4 has been worked 1 time in height. The piece now measures approx. 62-72-82-92 cm / 24½"-29½"-32 1/4"-36 1/4"'' from the cast-on edge.
bind off with knit from the right side (it is important that the bind-off edge is not tight – to prevent this, bind off with a double strand).

BACK PIECE:
Cast on and work in the same way as for the front piece, but in reverse. In other words, when you insert a marker to mark the split, insert it at the end of the row (from the right side).

ASSEMBLY:
See the sketch. Sew seams A and B inside the bind-off edge. Then sew seams C and D in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch. There is now a split of 30-32-34-36 cm / 11 3/4"-12½"-13½"-14 1/4" in the one side and a split along the whole of the other side.

Hello Please can you explain row 4 in A2 as I seem to gain an extra stitch on the following row

DROPS Design 03.12.2018 kl. 07:38:

Hi Emma, I think you must mean row 3 - you read the patterns from bottom left to right and upwards. So row 3 is knit 2 together, 1 yarn over, knit 2 together, 1 yarn over to the end of the row, so that you should have the same number of stitches at the end as you started with. Happy knitting!

Bonsoir, Je souhaite tricoter ce modèle en Brushed Alpaca Silk, dois-je monter autant de mailles qu'avec le modèle en Alpaca Bouclé ? De plus, quelle grosseur d'aiguilles dois-je utiliser ? Merci de votre réponse.

DROPS Design 12.10.2018 kl. 07:54:

Bonjour Marie, comme Brushed Alpaca Silk et Alpacé Bouclé appartiennent toutes 2 au groupe de fils C, vous pouvez utiliser l'un ou l'autre, avec les mêmes aiguilles (ou celles qui vous permettent d'avoir l'échantillon). Toutefois, comme ces laines ont une texture différente, le résultat sera également différent - plus d'infos ici. N'hésitez pas à tricoter votre échantillon pour vérifier que la texture vous conviendra, et ajustez la taille des aiguilles si nécessaire. Bon tricot!

1. the A.2 pattern does not look like a repeat over a certain number of stitches although the chart shows 10 stitches. is this correct? I'm knitting s/m and need to work 9 st of A1 and then 92 stitches of A.2 (so this is not evenly divided by 10) then work another 9 st of A1 at the end. 2. I see a symbol for slip st, K1, then pass sl st over k st. I don't see that symbol on the charts provided for this poncho. what am i missing? thanks!!!!!

DROPS Design 11.09.2018 kl. 08:18:

Dear Karen, you will repeat A.2 in width over the next 92 sts, ie A.2 is 10 sts, you will repeat A.2 a total of 9 times then work the first 2 sts in A.2 again. Symbols and diagrams are visible back on the page. Happy knitting!

Norma 11.03.2018 - 03:26:

The numbers for the largest size seem to be off. You add 2 stitches but only take off one. Can you please check to see that the decreased number is correct

DROPS Design 12.03.2018 kl. 09:14:

Dear Norma, in the largest size you start with 160 sts and dec to 147 sts after A.2 has been worked 1 time in height, then continue working over these 147 sts to the end. Happy knitting!
