INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.8. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

INCREASE TIP:
Increase 1 stitch at the end of each knitted section by making 1 yarn over. On the next round knit the yarn over twisted to prevent a hole. The next time you increase, make 1 yarn over at the beginning of each knitted section.
----------------------------------------------------------

PONCHO:
The piece is worked sideways. Front and back pieces are worked separately back and forth with circular needle. Then the shoulder seams are sewn before working a high collar.

FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 66-70-74-78 stitches with circular needle size 8 mm and 2 strands Air. Work 4 RIDGES – see description above. Change to circular needle size 9 mm and work the next row as follows from the right side: 4 edge stitches in garter stitch, 18-22-24-28 stitches stocking stitch, A.1 (= 17 stitches), A.2 (= 20 stitches), 6-6-8-8 stitches stocking stitch and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Work back from the wrong side in the same way = 75-79-83-87 stitches on the needle.
The next row is worked as follows from the right side: 4 edge stitches in garter stitch, 18-22-24-28 stitches stocking stitch, A.3 (= 20 stitches), A.4 (= 26 stitches), 6-6-8-8 stitches stocking stitch and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue the pattern in this way. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When A.3 and A.4 have been worked 4-4-5-5 times in height, the piece measures approx. 51-51-63-63 cm from the cast-on edge. The next row is worked as follows from the right side: 4 edge stitches in garter stitch, 18-22-24-28 stitches stocking stitch, A.5 (= 20 stitches), A.6 (= 26 stitches), 6-6-8-8 stitches stocking stitch and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue the pattern in this way and cast off AT THE SAME TIME for neck at the beginning of each row from the wrong side as follows:
S/M and L/XL: Cast off 2 stitches 1 time and 1 stitch 2 times = 71-75 stitches.
XXL and XXXL: Cast off 3 stitches 1 time, 2 stitches 1 time and 1 stitch 1 time
= 77-81 stitches.
After the last cast-off, insert 1 marker at the end of the row from the right side. Continue the pattern as before with 1 edge stitch in garter stitch towards the neck until A.5 and A.6 have been worked 1 time in height. Insert 1 new marker = mid front (if your knitting tension is right in height, the piece will measure approx. 4½ cm from the first marker). Continue the pattern with A.5 and A.6 until the piece measures 4½ cm from the marker mid front.
Now cast on stitches for the neck at the end of each row from the right side as follows:
S/M and M/L: Cast on 1 stitch 2 times and 2 stitches 1 time = 75-79 stitches.
XXL and XXXL: Cast on 1 stitch 1 time, 2 stitches 1 time and 3 stitches 1 time = 83-87 stitches.
A.5 and A.6 have now been worked 1 time in height after the marker mid front (there is a total of 2 repeats in height of A.5 and A.6) and the neckline measures approx. 17 cm in all sizes.
The next row is worked as follows from the right side: 4 edge stitches in garter stitch, 18-22-24-28 stitches stocking stitch, A.3 (= 20 stitches), A.4 (= 26 stitches), 6-6-8-8 stitches stocking stitch and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. Continue the pattern in this way until A.3 and A.4 have been worked 4-4-5-5 times in height after the neckline. The next row is worked as follows from the right side: 4 edge stitches in garter stitch, 18-22-24-28 stitches stocking stitch, A.7 (= 20 stitches), A.8 (= 26 stitches), 6-6-8-8 stitches stocking stitch and 1 edge stitch in garter stitch. When A.7 and A.8 have been completed, there are 66-70-74-78 stitches on the needle. Change to circular needle size 8 mm and work 3 ridges. Cast off with knit from the right side, but to avoid the cast-off edge being tight cast off with circular needle size 9 mm.

BACK PIECE:
Cast on and work in the same way as the front piece as far as the neckline. Now cast off for the neck at the beginning of each row from the wrong side as follows: Cast off 1 stitch 2 times = 73-77-81-85 stitches. Insert 1 marker at the end of the row from the right side. Continue working until A.5 and A.6 have been worked 1 time in height. Insert 1 new marker = mid back (the piece measures approx. 5½ cm from the first marker). Continue the pattern with A.5 and A.6 until the piece measures 5½ cm from the marker mid back. Now cast on stitches for the neck at the end of each row from the right side as follows: Cast on 1 stitch 2 times = 75-79-83-87 stitches.
A.5 and A.6 have now been worked 1 time in height after the marker mid back (there is a total of 2 repeats in height of A.5 and A.6) and the neckline measures approx. 17 cm in all sizes. Continue working to finished length in the same way as the front piece.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the 2 parts together at the shoulder – sew edge to edge in the outermost loop of the outermost garter stitch so that the seam is flat. If you would like to define the armhole you can sew a couple of stitches through the front and back pieces in each side approx. 30-35 cm from the shoulder down.

HIGH COLLAR:
Knit up from the right side approx. 42 to 48 stitches around the neck with short circular needle size 8 mm and 2 strands Air. Knit 1 round where you increase evenly on row to 56-56-64-64 stitches (the number of stitches should be divisible by 4). Work rib in the round (= knit 2 / purl 2). When the rib measures 10 cm increase every other knit 2 to knit 3 – read INCREASE TIP = 63-63-72-72 stitches. When the rib measures 18 cm increase the remaining knit 2 to knit 3 = 70-70-80-80 stitches. Continue in the round with knit 3 / purl 2 until the collar measures approx. 22-24 cm (you can try the poncho on and work the collar to the desired length). Cast off with knit over knit and purl over purl, but to avoid the cast-off edge being tight you can make 1 yarn over after every 5th stitch at the same time as you cast off (the yarn overs are cast off as normal stitches). Fold the collar down.

= purl from right side, knit from wrong side
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over, on the next row purl the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes
= place 1 stitch on cable needle behind piece, knit 3, then purl 1 from cable needle
= place 3 stitches on cable needle in front of piece, purl 1, then knit 3 from cable needle
= place 3 stitches on cable needle behind piece, knit 3, then knit 3 from cable needle
= knit 2 together

There are several people I have found making your patterns for profit.

Pascale 27.05.2018 - 17:01:

Bonjour, pouvez-vous me dire en millimètre les aiguilles utilisées svp. Au Canada, une aiguille #8 est de 5mm. Merci!

DROPS Design 28.05.2018 kl. 09:36:

Bonjour Pascale, la taille des aiguilles des modèles français est toujours indiquée en système métrique, pour connaître l'équivalence en système US, vous pouvez modifier la langue du modèle en English (US) ou retrouver ici le récapitulatif des tailles d'aiguilles US/métrique. Bon tricot!

Berit 22.05.2018 - 19:54:

Skal den strikkes med en tråd i hver anden maske eller med to tråde i hver maske?

DROPS Design 23.05.2018 kl. 11:57:

Hei Berit. Det skal strikkes med 2 tråder i alle maskene, på samme måte som når du strikker med 1 tråd. God fornøyelse

Hi, I would like to make this for my daughter, I have some wool from something my mother in law started, but no pattern. Please could you tell me how to find how many balls I need for the small to medium. My son has also chosen a pattern for himself so I'll be very busy! Many thanks, I love the look of your website, do you have an app?

DROPS Design 24.10.2017 kl. 13:35:

Dear Mrs Weston, you will find total amount of yarn required for each size under tab "Materials", ie in size S/M you need 750 g DROPS Air / 50 g a ball Air = 15 balls Air. Read more about alternatives here>/a>. Happy knitting!
