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

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1, A.2 and A.3. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.
----------------------------------------------------------

PONCHO:
The piece is worked in the round with circular needle, top down. Cast on 132-138-144 stitches with circular needle size 4.5 mm / US 7 and Big Merino. Knit 1 round, then work rib, knit 2 / purl 4, over all stitches. Work rib for 18 cm / X'', then work 1 RIDGE over all stitches – see description above. Change to circular needle size 5 mm / US 8. Then knit 1 round where you decrease 26-24-22 stitches evenly on round = 106-114-122 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in each side, 1 at the beginning of the round and 1 after 53-57-61 stitches = in the sides. Knit 1-2-3, A.1(= 10 stitches), knit 1-2-3, A.2 (= 29 stitches), knit 1-2-3, A.3 (= 10 stitches), knit 2-4-6, A.1, knit 1-2-3, A.2, knit 1-2-3, A.3, knit 1-2-3. Continue this pattern, at the same time increase 1 stitch on each side of each A.1/A.3 (= 8 stitches increased). Increase by making 1 yarn over, on the next round knit the yarn overs twisted to prevent holes. Increase every 2nd round 10-14-17 times, then every 4th round 5 times and every 6th round 5 times (in total 20-24-27 times) = 266-306-338 stitches. Change to longer circular needle when necessary. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! When the piece measures 35-39-43 cm / 13 3/4"-15 1/4"-17'' (measured without the neck) work garter stitch over 6 stitches in each side (= 3 stitches on each side of the marker threads). NOTE! make sure the first row of garter stitch is on a row where you are working pattern in A.2. When you have worked 2 ridges place the first 133-153-169 stitches on a thread for the back piece and continue over the last 133-153-169 stitches on the needle (= front piece). You are now working back and forth on the needle. Continue pattern as before, 3 stitches in each side are now worked in GARTER STITCH – see description above. When you have worked 16 cm / 6 1/4'' from the split, work the knitted stitches in A.1/A.3 together 2 and 2 (= 127-147-163 stitches). Then work 1 ridge over all stitches, on the last row of the ridge, increase 25-29-31 stitches evenly on row = 152-176-194 stitches. Continue by working as follows – from the right side: 3 stitches garter stitch,* knit 2, purl 4 *, repeat from *-* until there are 5 stitches left, knit 2 and work 3 stitches garter stitch. On every 4th row (every other row on the right side) knit over all stitches so that the rib does not tighten. Work rib for 4 cm / 1½'', then bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl.

BACK PIECE:
Place the 133-153-169 stitches on the thread back on the needle and work as for front piece.
----------------------------------------------------------

WRIST WARMERS:
The piece is worked in the round with double pointed needles. Cast on 42 stitches with double pointed needles size 4.5 mm / US 7 and Big Merino. Knit 1 round, then work rib, purl 2, knit 2, purl 2, knit 2, purl 2, * knit 2, purl 4 *, repeat from *-* until there are 2 stitches left, knit 2 stitches. Continue this rib until the piece measures 4 cm / 1½''. Change to double pointed needles size 5 mm / US 8 and continue as follows: A.1 over the first 10 stitches, rib as before over the remaining 32 stitches. Continue this pattern until the piece measures 18 cm / 7''. REMEMBER THE GAUGE! Change to double pointed needles size 4.5 mm / US 7 and work rib as follows: Purl 2, knit 2, purl 2, knit 2, purl 2, * knit 2, purl 4 *, repeat from *-* until there are 2 stitches left, knit 2 stitches. Work rib for 4 cm / 1½'', then bind off with knit over knit and purl over purl. Cut and fasten the strands well.

Thanks so much! With my limited eyesight I missed the YO on both sides of the middle P stitch! Great help! THANX AGAIN

Genie Stanton 24.05.2018 - 05:44:

In A.2 row 12 I\\\'m told to knit 2 stitches together 2 times, which leave me w/27 stitches. How do I get 29 stitches for the next row?

DROPS Design 24.05.2018 kl. 10:09:

Dear Mrs Stanton, read diagrams from the bottom corner on the right side from RS and towards the left on every round (from the left towards the right from WS), ie on row 1 in A.2 you dec 2 sts (1 st on each side of middle P st) and make 2 YOs (= 1 YO on each side of the middle P st) so that the number of sts will keep constant, you should always have 29 sts in A.2. Happy knitting!

Is the pattern carried on the back as well as front of poncho?

DROPS Design 13.01.2018 kl. 21:54:

Dear Elizabeth, yes, there is a pattern at the back of the poncho as well as on the front. Happy Knitting!

Oksana Merklas 20.11.2017 - 22:31:

Please help to understand: NOTE! make sure the first row of garter stitch is on a row where you are working pattern in A.2 Isnt pattern A.2 present in each row since started? Is there particular row of A.2 meant? Thanks!

DROPS Design 21.11.2017 kl. 08:25:

Dear Mrs Merklas, this is meant a row with dec/YO so that this row will be worked from RS and the even numbered rows will be worked from WS. Happy knitting!

Diagramm A.1 Fehler: Zopf ist in Reihe 6 eingezeichnet. Ich vermute jedoch, beide Zöpfe sollten parallel, also in Reihe 5 gestrickt werden. (Reihe 6 ist zudem eine Rückreihe.)

Bettina Ross 30.10.2017 - 08:28:

Poncho: „106-114-122 Maschen. 1 Markierungsfaden auf beiden Seiten des Ponchos anbringen, d.h. 1 am Rundenbeginn und 1 nach 53-55-57 Maschen.“ Fehler: Es muß heißen „1 nach 53-57-61 Maschen“
