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. NOTE: The pattern is worked from both the right side and the wrong side in A.6 and A.7.
----------------------------------------------------------

PONCHO:
The piece is worked back and forth with circular needle in 2 parts and sewn together to finish.


FRONT PIECE: 
Cast on 123-138-158-173 stitches with circular needle size 4 mm and 1 strand Alpaca and 1 strand Kid-Silk (= 2 strands). Work A.1, but on row 7 in A.1 repeat A.1 until there are 1-2-2-1 stitches left on the row and knit the last 1-2-2-1 stitches.
When A.1 has been completed, change to circular needle size 5 mm.
The next row is worked as follows: 4 edge stitches in GARTER STITCH - see description above, A.2 (= 12 stitches), work A.3A over the next 50-60-80-100 stitches (= 5-6-8-10 repeats of 10 stitches), A.3B over the next 0-5-5-0 stitches (= 0-1-1-0 repeats of 5 stitches), 3 stitches stocking stitch, A.4 (= 10 stitches), A.5 (= 27 stitches), insert 1 marker thread and work A.6 (= 17 stitches). Continue the pattern like this and allow the marker thread to follow your work upwards. NOTE: The marker thread marks the transition between A.5 and A.6, be aware that the pattern in A.6 is worked both from the right side and the wrong side and that the number of stitches in A.6 will vary from 17 to 21 stitches. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
Work until the piece measures approx. 67-76-88-97 cm – finish after a whole repeat of A.5/A.6 in height. Change to circular needle size 4 mm. Work A.1, but on row 7 in A.1, repeat A.1 until there are 1-2-2-1 stitches left on the row, knit the last 1-2-2-1 stitches. When A.1 has been completed, cast off with knit from the right side, but to avoid the cast-off edge being tight, you can make 1 yarn over after approx. every 6th stitch at the same time as you cast off (the yarn overs are cast off as normal stitches).

BACK PIECE:
Cast on 123-138-158-173 stitches with circular needle size 4 mm and 1 strand Alpaca and 1 strand Kid-Silk (= 2 strands). Work A.1, but on row 7 in A.1, repeat A.1 until there are 1-2-2-1 stitches left on the row and knit the last 1-2-2-1 stitches.
When A.1 has been completed, change to circular needle size 5 mm.
The next row is worked as follows: A.7 (= 17 stitches), insert 1 marker thread, work A.5 (= 27 stitches), A.8 (= 10 stitches), work A.3A over the next 50-60-80-100 stitches (= 5-6-8-10 repeats of 10 stitches), work A.3B over the next 0-5-5-0 stitches (= 0-1-1-0 repeats of 5 stitches), 3 stitches stocking stitch, A.2 (= 12 stitches) and 4 edge stitches in garter stitch. Continue the pattern like this and allow the marker thread to follow your work upwards. NOTE: The marker thread marks the transition between A.7 and A.5, be aware that the pattern in A.7 is worked both from the right side and the wrong side and you need to repeat in height from the row marked with a star in the diagram. The number of stitches in A.7 will vary from 17 to 21 stitches.
Continue working until the piece measures approx. 67-76-88-97 cm – finish after a whole repeat of A.7/A.5 in height. Change to circular needle size 4 mm. Work A.1, but on row 7in A.1 repeat A.1 until there are 1-2-2-1 stitches left on the row, knit the last 1-2-2-1 stitches. When A.1 has been completed, cast off with knit from the right side, but to avoid the cast-off edge being tight, you can make 1 yarn over after approx. every 6th stitch at the same time as you cast off (the yarn overs are cast off as normal stitches).

ASSEMBLY:
See sketch. Lay the parts on top of each other with the right side out and sew seams A and B inside the cast-off edge. Then sew seams C and D in the outermost loop of the outermost stitch. You now have a split of 30-32-34-36 cm in the one side and a split along the whole of the other side in addition to an opening for the neck.

= purl from right side, knit from wrong side
= knit twisted
= between 2 stitches make 1 yarn over
= knit 2 together
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted stitch
= place 1 stitch on the cable needle at the back of the piece, knit 1, knit 1 from the cable needle
= purl 2 together from the right side and purl 2 together from the wrong side
= knit 3 together
= slip 1 stitch as if to knit, knit 2 together, pass the slipped stitch over the knitted together stitches
= repeat the pattern from this row
= knitting direction
= cast off 1 stitch

Hallo liebes Drops-team, nur ein kleiner Hinweis: in der Grafik A6 fehlt in den letzten beiden Reihen links eine Masche. Man findet den Fehler schon wenn man lange genug mit A 7 vergleicht - aber vielleicht könnt ihr das ausbessern.

DROPS Design 03.06.2019 kl. 13:35:

Liebe Otti, danke für den Hinweis, A.6 wird korrigiert. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Julia 26.03.2019 - 12:36:

Hallo liebes Drops Team, Ich liebe diesen Poncho, mein Vorderteil ist auch bereits fertig. Nun hänge ich bei A7, ich verstehe einfach nicht, wie das mit dem wiederholen des Rapports gemeint ist?? Soll ich dann die erste Reihe auslassen?! Oder immer erst in Reihe 3 anfangen?! Im Gegensatz zu A6 hat A7 ja auch 11 Reihen. Vielen Dank für die Hilfe. liebe Grüße

DROPS Design 26.03.2019 kl. 13:48:

Liebe Julia, wenn die 11 Reihen in A.7 einmal in der Höhe gestrickt werden, dann wiederholen Sie A.7 ab der Reihe mit dem Stern = ab 2. Reihe, dh Reihe 2 bis 11 wiederholen. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Mimi 22.04.2018 - 15:21:

Bonjour à l'équipe Garnstudio, J'ai une question/remarque à propos du diagramme A7, au niveau de la dernière ligne, il me semble qu'il y ait une maille de trop. Est-ce qu'après les 4 mailles rabattues, il n'y aurait pas que 2 mailles tricotées à l'endroit (à la place de 3). Bien cordialement,

DROPS Design 23.04.2018 kl. 09:41:

Bonjour Mimi, quand on a rabattu les 4 premières mailles, il reste 1 maille sur l'aiguille droite, on tricote les 2 m suivantes à l'endroit = on a bien 3 m end avant le jeté. Bon tricot!

Antje 24.02.2018 - 15:15:

Hallo, in Diagramm A.6 sind schwarze Kästchen gezeichnet , in der Erklärung zum Diagramm finde ich keine passende Erklärung dazu. Ich weiß mir nicht zu helfen und komme nicht weiter.Danke für ihre Hilfe

DROPS Design 26.02.2018 kl. 08:06:

Liebe Antje, diese Maschen sollen abgekettet werden, diese Zeichen werden so bald wie möglich ergänzt. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Mimi 12.02.2018 - 00:50:

Bonjour, Je pose plusieurs questions concernant respectivement les diagrammes A3A et A6 : Diagramme A3A : la photo du modèle montre des points ajourés régulièrement disposés. Cela pourrait être possible si la (diminution + jeté) est au rang 9 et non au rang 11 ? Diagramme A6 : les cases noires non pas été légendées : est-ce que cela correspond à des diminutions (par exemple tricoter une maille et la passer par dessus la suivante) ? Dans l'attente de vous lire,

DROPS Design 12.02.2018 kl. 09:38:

Bonjour Mimi et merci pour votre retour, nos stylistes vont vérifier A.3A et ajouter la légende manquante à A.6 et A.7. Bon tricot!

Katherine 06.02.2018 - 19:45:

Hello! I love this pattern, but can I use DROPS Lace instead? Please advice. Thank you

DROPS Design 07.02.2018 kl. 08:35:

Dear Katherine, DROPS Lace is quite thinner and generally used only for shawls, you can swatch first and check if you like the fabric with the given tension. For any further assistance do not hesitate to contact your DROPS store even per mail, telephone or on social medias. Happy knitting!

Audrey 18.01.2018 - 14:07:

Bonjour Est il possible d'avoir les explications de ce magnifique châle? en vous remerciant cordialement

Cissi 16.01.2018 - 11:16:

Rolig modell, skulle dock ha valt en annan färg. Varför inte den starkt gula som finns på andra modeller...

Lisette 04.01.2018 - 23:53:

What a lovely poncho and so very practical for walking to the shops to run errands!

Monica 23.12.2017 - 07:52:

Un po' scialle un po' poncho. Bellssimo. Non può mancare nel guardaroba della prossima primavera
