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.
INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

RIDGE/GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

PATTERN:
See diagram A.1. The diagram shows all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.

INCREASE TIP:
Increase 1 stitch on each side of each repeat of A.1 (= 4 stitches increased on the round). Increase 1 stitch by making 1 yarn over. On the next round, knit the yarn overs so that there are holes. The new stitches are knitted.
----------------------------------------------------------

PONCHO:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle, top down. The start of the round = middle of shoulder.

Cast on 100-104-108-112-116-120 stitches with short circular needle size 3.5 mm / US 4 with 1 strand Baby Merino and 1 strand Kid-Silk (= 2 strands). Work rib (knit 2 / purl 2) until the piece measures 7 cm / 2¾''. Work 1 RIDGE - see description above. Change to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8. Insert a marker here! THE PIECE IS NOW MEASURED FROM HERE!
Now work pattern as follows:
Knit 11-12-13-14-15-16 stitches, work A.1 (= 27 stitches) – read PATTERN above, knit 23-25-27-29-31-33 stitches, work A.1, knit 12-13-14-15-16-17 stitches. On the next round, increase 1 stitch on each side of each repeat of A.1 (= 4 stitches increased on the round) – read INCREASE TIP! Increase in this way every 2nd round to finished length. Diagram A.1 is repeated in height to finished length. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When the piece measures 36-38-40-42-44-46 cm / 14¼''-15''-15¾''-16½''-17¼''-18'' from the marker and there are 260-272-284-296-308-320 stitches on the needle, knit 1 round where you decrease 2 stitches over each of the 4 cables on the round (i.e. the 8 knitted stitches in each repeat of A.1) = 8 stitches decreased on the round = 252-264-276-288-300-312 stitches. Work 2 ridges. Bind off. To avoid getting a tight bind-off edge, you can use a larger needle size or make a yarn over, which is then bind off, after every 4th stitch. The piece measures approx. 38-40-42-44-46-48 cm / 15''-15¾''-16½''-17¼''-18''-19''. Cut and fasten the strands.

Jeg strikkede denne poncho i Drops Big Merino i julen 2017. Ponchoen blev ikke som forventet, idet garnet var af en dårlig kvalitet. Mere end halvdelen af de 10 nøgler Drops Big Merino colour 12, 89777, jeg brugte til ponchoen, var flosset og med mange samlinger i knuder, der gjorde, at ponchoen blev ujævn. - øv. Jeg havde købt garnet hos Nicoline garn på Nørrebro, København, i efteråret 2017 . Jeg beder om jeres kommentar til ovenstående.

Thank you!

Instead of holding two strands of sport, can you use worsted weight?

DROPS Design 19.09.2017 kl. 08:52:

Dear Sharon, instead of working with 2 strands yarn group A you can use 1 strand yarn group C (see groups) - Read more about alternatives here. Happy knitting!

Sharon 18.09.2017 - 21:05:

With no chest size, how do you pick a size on this pattern?

DROPS Design 19.09.2017 kl. 08:51:

Dear Sharon, you will find at the very bottom of the pattern a measurement chart with all measurements for each size, compare these to a similar garment you have and like the shape to find out the matching size. Read more about sizing here. Happy knitting!
