Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.

See diagram A.1.

All the stripes are worked with 1 strand Alpaca + 2 strands Kid-silk (= 3 strands). Work 6 cm of each stripe before changing colour.
STRIPE 1: 1 strand BabyAlpaca Silk off white + 2 strands Kid-Silk off white.
STRIPE 2: 1 strand BabyAlpaca Silk off white + 1 strand Kid-Silk light pink + 1 strand Kid-Silk off white.
STRIPE 3: 1 strand BabyAlpaca Silk off white + 2 strands Kid-Silk light pink.
STRIPE 4: 1 strand BabyAlpaca Silk off white + 1 strand Kid-Silk medium pink + 1 strand Kid-Silk light pink.
STRIPE 5: 1 strand BabyAlpaca Silk off white + 2 strands Kid-Silk medium pink
STRIPE 6: 1 strand BabyAlpaca Silk light old pink + 1 strand Kid-Silk medium pink + 1 strand Kid-Silk light pink.
STRIPE 7: 1 strand BabyAlpaca Silk light old pink + 2 strands Kid-Silk medium pink.

To work out how to increase evenly, count the total number of stitches on the needle (e.g. 120 stitches), and divide by the number of increases to be made (e.g. 16) = 7.5. In this example, increase alternately after every 7th and 8th stitch.
Increase with 1 yarn over after the stitch and work the yarn over twisted on the next row.


The poncho is worked in the round with circular needle, top down.

Cast on 90-102-114 stitches with 1 strand Baby Alpaca Silk off white + 2 strands Kid-Silk off white (= 3 strands) with circular needle size 7 mm. Knit 1 round, then work rib; knit 1 / purl 2. When the piece measures 12 cm increase 1 stitch in each knitted section = 120-136-152 stitches. Continue with rib; knit 2 / purl 2. When the piece measures 25-25-25 cm knit 1 round where you increase 16-17-18 stitches evenly on round – read INCREASE TIP = 136-153-170 stitches.

Purl 1 round, then work according to A.1 (= 8-9-10 repeats in width), and also work STRIPES – see description above! When A.1 has been worked 1 time in height, there are 232-261-290 stitches on the round. Now repeat the last 6 rounds in the diagram (= A.2) until the piece measures 40-42-44 cm from the rib (you have worked approx. 6 cm of each of the 6 first stripes and approx. 4-6-8 cm of stripe 7). Cast off as follows: * Cast off one stitch, make a yarn over and cast off the yarn over,* repeat from *-* until all stitches have been cast off. Fasten the strands.

Il manque encore 1 pelote de kidsilk et 1 pelote de babyalpaga Sinon ce modele est magnifique

DROPS Design 30.04.2018 kl. 11:54:

Bonjour Mme Gabard, votre échantillon et votre tension s ont ils corrects? Quelle taille avez-vous tricoté? Merci!

Cuissot 14.04.2018 - 17:44: https://www.garnstud ...

Bonjour, Je ne comprends pas :\"Tricoter 1 tour envers, et continuer en suivant A.1 (= 8-9-10 fois en largeur) et les RAYURES – voir ci-dessus! Quand A.1 a été tricoté 1 fois en hauteur, on a 232-261-290 mailles.\ Le A.1 correspond à quoi? Merci de votre réponse

DROPS Design 16.04.2018 kl. 10:33:

Bonjour Mme Cuissot, le diagramme A.1 correspond à la totalité du diagramme en bas de page: on commence par 17 m et on termine par 21 m, on va ainsi augmenter le nombre de mailles comme indiqué. On continuer ensuite en répétant A.2 (= les 6 derniers tours du diagramme). Bon tricot!

Gabard 11.04.2018 - 15:32:

J ai commencé ce modèle et je n ai pas eu assez de kid silk 50 g au lieu de 25 g de chaque couleur\r\nComme veronique attention c estde chaque couleur pas seulement de la naturel

DROPS Design 11.04.2018 kl. 15:47:

Bonjour Mme Gabard, la quantité Kid-Silk a été effectivement modifiée pour toutes les tailles . Merci. Bon tricot!

Manuela 22.03.2018 - 22:59:

Di questo schema esiste una variante ad uncinetto? Grazie

DROPS Design 23.03.2018 kl. 13:38:

Buongiorno Manuela. Purtroppo il modello è solo ai ferri e non esiste l'equivalente all'uncinetto. Sul nostro sito sono comunque disponibili vari modelli di poncho all'uncinetto tra i quali può trovare modelli di suo gradimento. Buon lavoro!

Susanne 15.03.2018 - 15:52:

Hej, Jag undrar om ni kan tipsa om andra färgkombinationer (svårt att se på färgkartan på skärmen vilka nyanser som kan tänkas passa ihop). Gärna i blå, grå eller sjögröna toner.

DROPS Design 16.03.2018 kl. 15:24:

Hej Susanne, der findes uendelig mange farvekombinationer, spørg gerne i butikken hvor du køber garnet. Butikkerne er utroligt dygtige til at sætte farver sammen. God fornøjelse!

Mareike 15.03.2018 - 13:28:

Die Korrektur gibt die gleiche Garnmenge an wie die erste Beschreibung... ein Schreibfehler?

DROPS Design 15.03.2018 kl. 15:50:

Liebe Mareike, die Garnmenge in Kid-Silk (jede Farbe, jede Größe) wurde verändert, wenn Sie die Anleitung vor der Korrektur gedrückt haben, gab es eine kleinere Garnmenge. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Birgit 07.03.2018 - 13:58:

Hallo! Ich habe mit dem Stricken des Ponchos in Größe S/M angefangen. Leider ging mir bereits nach den ersten 20 cm gestricktem die Kid Silk Natur 01 aus. Habe zwei Fäden zum Stricken genommen. Ist das nicht richtig oder wurde Zuwenig Wolle angegeben. Stimmt die Mengenangabe bei den beiden anderen Farben in Kid Silk?

DROPS Design 07.03.2018 kl. 16:01:

Liebe Birgit, es sollte so richtig sein aber Ihren Hinweis wird unserer Designerinnen weiterleitet. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

Marie Garpefjll 05.03.2018 - 18:43:

Se tidigare mail , väntar på svar ??

Anita Gavelin 04.03.2018 - 14:27:

Jag stickar storleken S/M. Kid-silk-garnet är slut då jag kommit till den sjätte omgången av hoptagningar-omslag i mönstret. Något är tokigt, absolut.

Marie Garpefjäll 04.03.2018 - 10:49:

Hej, jag har garnet fabel, måste jag ta det dubbelt för att sticka denna?

DROPS Design 06.03.2018 kl. 14:40:

Jo, ifall du endast stickar med Fabel (inte t.ex. Fabel + Kid-Silk) måste du sticka med dubbelt garn. Kom ihåg att kontrollera stickfastheten.
