INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
1 ridge = knit 2 rows.

MOSS STITCH:
ROW 1: * Knit 1, purl 1 *, repeat from *-*.
ROW 2: Knit over purl and purl over knit. Repeat 2nd row upwards.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.
----------------------------------------------------------

PONCHO:
Worked back and forth on circular needle in 2 parts and sewn together when finished.

FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 110-126-144-160 stitches on circular needle size 5 mm with 1 strand BabyAlpaca Silk and 1 strand Kid-Silk. Work 1 ridge in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Work next row as follows from right side: 5 stitches in MOSS STITCH – see explanation above, purl 2, A.1 (= 12 stitches), purl 2, A.2 (= 22 stitches), purl 2, A.1 over the next 12 stitches, purl 2, and the work in stocking stitch until 5 stitches remain, work 5 stitches in moss stitch. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Continue the pattern like this. When piece measures 66-70-74-78 cm from cast-on edge, work 5 rows with moss stitch.
Cast off (it is important to avoid a tight cast-off edge - to avoid this cast off with 1 needle size thicker that size worked with). 

BACK PIECE:
Cast on and work as front piece, but reversed. I.e work pattern as follows from right side: Work 5 stitches moss stitch, 46-62-80-96 stitches in stocking stitch, purl 2 stitches, A.1 over the next 12 stitches, purl 2 stitches, A.2 over the next 22 stitches, purl 2 stitches, A.1 over the next 12 stitches, purl 2 stitches and finish with 5 stitches in moss stitch.

ASSEMBLY:
See chart. Place pieces on top of each other with right side outwards and sew seam A and B inside cast-off edge. Then sew seam C and D in outer loops of edge stitches. There is now a 38-40-42-44 cm vent in one side and a vent along the entire other side.

This pattern has been corrected. .

BACK PIECE:

Hallo, habe mir gerade das Foto und die Anleitung für den Poncho angeschaut. Sollte es nicht so sein, das das Vorderteil bzw. Rückenteil gegengleich gearbeitet wird? Viele Grüße Birgit

Liebe Frau Schulz, Rückenteil wird gegengleich gestrickt - Korrektur kommt gleich. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Bonjour, je suis en train de réaliser ce poncho. Cependant, quelque chose m échappe...pour réaliser le dos, il est marqué de le faire comme le devant. Mais à l assemblage, les torsades ne vont pas être du même côté? Ne faut il pas tricoter le dos à l inverse du devant? »je vous remercie pour votre réponse.

DROPS Design 20.08.2017 kl. 17:56:

Bonjour Lasne. Oui, vous avez raison. Si on regarde la photo, on doit tricoter le dos comme le devant, mais à l'inverse. Nous irons demander de modifier le texte. Merci et bon tricot!

Virginie 10.08.2017 - 07:38:
