INFORMATION FOR PATTERN:

GARTER STITCH (back and forth):
1 ridge = knit 2 rows.

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.9. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

DECREASE TIP:
Decrease 1 stitch by knitting 2 together.

INCREASE TIP:
Increase 1 stitch by making a yarn over. On next row work yarn overs twisted to avoid holes.

KNITTING TIP:
To make the band lay nicely where decrease for neck begins work a short row over the outermost 4 stitches in garter stitch towards mid front.
When working A.7a work the short row from right side of piece as follows: Work all stitches on needle, turn and knit over the 4 stitches in band, turn, knit over the 4 stitches in band, turn and work back over all stitches.
When working A.7b work the short row from right side of piece as follows: Knit over the 4 stitches in band, turn and knit over the 4 stitches in band, turn and work as before over all stitches.
----------------------------------------------------------

TUNIC:
Piece is worked back and forth bottom up in parts and sewn together when finished.

FRONT PIECE:
Cast on 99-117-135-153 stitches on circular needle size 5 mm with Paris. Work 2 ridges in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Work pattern as follows: 4 stitches in garter stitch, A.1 (= 10 stitches), A.2 (= 18 stitches) 4-5-6-7 times in width, A.3 (= 9 stitches), 4 stitches in garter stitch. After first row in A.1 to A.3 there are 89-105-121-137 stitches on needle. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When A.1 to A.3 have been worked, continue with stocking stitch and 4 stitches in garter stitch in each side until piece measures 26-28-30-32 cm. Now work pattern, AT THE SAME TIME on first row decrease 2-0-4-2 stitches evenly – read DECREASE TIP (but not over stitches in garter stitch) as follows: 4 stitches in garter stitch, A.4 until 5 stitches remain, work first stitch in A.4, 4 stitches in garter stitch = 87-105-117-135 stitches. On next to last row in A.4 increase 3-1-5-3 stitches evenly – read INCREASE TIP (but not over stitches in garter stitch) = 90-106-122-138 stitches. Work last row from wrong side as follows: Work the first 45-53-61-69 stitches before slipping them on a stitch holder for right front piece. Continue over the last 45-53-61-69 stitches (= left front piece).

LEFT FRONT PIECE:
= 45-53-61-69 stitches. Insert a marker thread here. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Work pattern from right side as follows: 4 stitches in garter stitch, A.5a (= 2 stitches), A.5b (= 4 stitches) over the next 8-16-24-32 stitches, A.5c (= 3 stitches), A.6 (= 5 stitches), A.7a (= 23 stitches). Continue pattern like this. When piece measures 10-10-8-8 cm, cast on 8 new stitches at the end of next row from wrong side = 53-61-69-77 stitches. Continue pattern from right side as follows: 4 stitches in garter stitch, A.5a, A.5b over the next 16-24-32-40 stitches, and continue A.5c, A.6 and A.7a as before. On row with star in A.7a work a short row so that band lays nicely - read KNITTING TIP! When entire A.7a has been worked vertically, there are 44-52-60-68 stitches for shoulder and piece measures approx. 38 cm in all sizes. Work 1 ridge over all stitches. Cast off - make sure that the cast-off edge is not too tight! Piece measures approx. 68-70-72-74 cm from shoulder and down.

RIGHT FRONT PIECE:
= 45-53-61-69 stitches. Insert a marker thread here. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE! Work pattern from right side as follows: A.7b (= 23 stitches), A.6 (= 5 stitches), A.8a (= 3 stitches), A.8b (= 4 stitches) over the next 8-16-24-32 stitches, A.8c (= 2 stitches), 4 stitches in garter stitch. Continue pattern like this. When piece measures 10-10-8-8 cm, cast on 8 new stitches at the end of next row from right side = 53-61-69-77 stitches. Work 1 row in pattern as before but knit over the new stitches cast on. Continue pattern from right side as follows: A.7b, A.6 (= 5 stitches), A.8a, A.8b over the next 16-24-32-40 stitches, A.8c, 4 stitches in garter stitch. On row with star in A.7b work a short row the same way as on left band but reversed, so that band lays nicely - remember KNITTING TIP! When entire A.7b has been worked vertically, there are 44-52-60-68 stitches for shoulder and piece measures approx. 38 cm in all sizes. Work 1 ridge over all stitches. Cast off - make sure that the cast-off edge is not too tight! Piece measures approx. 68-70-72-74 cm from shoulder and down.

BACK PIECE:
Cast on and work the same way as on front piece until A.4. Piece now measures 26-28-30-32 cm. Now work pattern, AT THE SAME TIME on first row decrease 2-0-4-2 stitches evenly (but not over stitches in garter stitch) as follows: 4 stitches in garter stitch, A.4 until 5 stitch remain, work first stitch in A.4, 4 stitches in garter stitch = 87-105-117-135 stitches. On next to last row in A.4 increase 4-2-6-4 stitches evenly = 91-107-123-139 stitches. When entire A.4 is done, insert a marker thread here. NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE!
Work pattern as follows: 4 stitches in garter stitch, A.5a (= 2 stitches), A.5b (= 4 stitches) over the next 8-16-24-32 stitches, A.5c (= 3 stitches), A.6 (= 5 stitches), A.9a (= 47 stitches), A.6 (= 5 stitches), A.8a (= 3 stitches), A.8b (= 4 stitches) over the next 8-16-24-32 stitches, A.8c (= 2 stitches), 4 stitches in garter stitch. When the first 2 rows in A.9a have been worked, repeat A.9b 3 times in total vertically, AT THE SAME TIME when piece measures 10-10-8-8 cm, cast on 8 new stitches at the end of the next 2 rows for sleeves = 107-123-139-155 stitches. Continue pattern as follows from right side: 4 stitches in garter stitch, A.5a (= 2 stitches), A.5b (= 4 stitches) over the next 16-24-32-40 stitches, A.5c (= 3 stitches), A.6 (= 5 stitches), A.9a (= 47 stitches), A.6 (= 5 stitches), A.8a (= 3 stitches), A.8b (= 4 stitches) over the next 16-24-32-40 stitches, A.8c (= 2 stitches), 4 stitches in garter stitch. When A.9b has been done 3 times in total vertically, work the last 4 rows in diagram A.9a. Work next row from right side as follows: Work pattern as before over the first 30-38-46-54 stitches, work A.9c (= 14 stitches), and slip these 44-52-60-68 stitches on a stitch holder (= right shoulder), cast off the next 19 stitches for neck, work A.9d (= 14 stitches), work the last 30-38-46-54 stitches as before. Now work back and forth over the last 44-52-60-68 stitches worked after decrease for neck (= left shoulder). Continue back and forth until A.9d has been worked vertically. Work 1 ridge over all the 44-52-60-68 stitches. Cast off - make sure that the cast-off edge is not too tight! Piece measures approx. 68-70-72-74 cm from shoulder and down. Slip the 44-52-60-68 stitches from stitch holder back on circular needle size 5 mm and continue pattern back and forth until A.9c has been worked. Work 1 ridge over all the 44-52-60-68 stitches. Cast off - make sure that the cast-off edge is not too tight. Piece measures approx. 68-70-72-74 cm from shoulder and down.

ASSEMBLY:
Sew shoulder seams with grafting/kitchener stitch - make sure the seam is not tight. Sew seam under sleeves and continue down the body until first row in A.4 to make a vent in the side from A.4 and down. Repeat in the other side.
Sew band together mid front by sewing in outermost loop of one and one stitch upwards from first row in A.7a/A.7b and until approx. 7 ridges remain before neck decrease begins.

TWINED STRING AND TASSELS:
Cut 2 lengths of yarn of 65 cm. Twine the strands together until they resist, fold the string double so that it twines again. Make a knot at each end. Thread the string through each of the bands approx. 12 rows above the neck decrease and make a knot. Cut 15 lengths of yarn of 18 cm. Thread them through end on the twined string and distribute so that they are even. Place a strand around the tassel, tighten and make a knot. Repeat on the other end of string so that there is a tassel in each end of string.

This pattern has been corrected. .

Correction to instructions for BACK PIECE: Continue back and forth until A.9d (NOT A.9b)has been worked vertically. Work 1 ridge over all the 44-52-60-68 stitches.

Buenas noches, estoy trabajando el patrón, pero no logro entender cómo es la disminución y vuelta acortada, gracias

Arlee 11.10.2018 - 15:35:

When will this pattern come in estonian? I've been waiting for months now and I would really love to make it for the next summer.

Hola, estoy tejiendo el poncho y la verdad es que queda muy chulo. Las mangas no salen en el patrón. Me podeis facilitar el número de puntos y el patrón? Gracias

DROPS Design 09.10.2018 kl. 23:27:

Hola Mar. Las mangas se trabajan junto con el cuerpo. ".. AL MISMO TIEMPO cuando la labor mida 10-10-8-8 cm, montar 8 puntos nuevos al final de las siguientes 2 filas para las mangas = 107-123-139-155 puntos."

Regine 08.05.2018 - 21:17:

Bonjour, je pense qu'il y a une erreur vous avez écris : Continuer en allers et retours jusqu'à ce que A.9b ait été tricoté 1 fois en hauteur. D'après moi c'est plutôt A.9d. ceci se trouve dans le haut du dos.

DROPS Design 09.05.2018 kl. 08:40:

Bonjour Régine, vous avez raison, la correction a été faite, merci. Bon tricot!

Tatiana 04.05.2018 - 13:50:

Bonjour Pouvez vous me expliquer : EN MÊME TEMPS, quand l'ouvrage mesure 10-10-8-8 cm, monter 8 mailles à la fin des 2 rangs suivants pour les manches = 107-123-139-155 mailles. j ai pas compris comment il faut monter les mailles, dans quels rangs et pourquoi 2 rang? merci

DROPS Design 04.05.2018 kl. 14:17:

Bonjour Tatiana, à 10-10-8-8 cm de hauteur totale, montez 8 m à la fin du rang, tournez, tricotez le rang suivant et montez 8 m à la fin de ce rang (= vous avez monté 1 fois 8 m de chaque côté). Montez les mailles comme le montre cette vidéo mais des 2 côtés de l'ouvrage (la vidéo montre comment monter les mailles d'un seul côté, ici, vous devez les monter en fin de rang sur l'endroit et en fin de rang sur l'envers). Bon tricot!

Samanta 02.04.2018 - 18:07:

Nelle istruzioni c'è scritto di leggere i suggerimenti per il lavoro ma non ci sono, io ne ho bisogno per fare il ferro accorciato in A.7a e A.7b

DROPS Design 02.04.2018 kl. 20:08:

Buonasrra Samanta, abbiamo corretto il testo: ora sono presenti tutte le informazioni. Buon lavoro!

Fanny 01.04.2018 - 16:13:

Bonjour, dans la légende des diagrammes, il est dit : "faire un jeté entre 2mailles. Au rang suivant, tricoter le jeté à l'envers jeté" Que signifie à l'envers jeté? Est ce qu'il faut juste tricoté le jeté a l'envers? Doit on avoir un grand trou ou un petit? Merci d'avance

DROPS Design 03.04.2018 kl. 08:50:

Bonjour Fanny, ce n'était qu'une faute de frappe (corrigée, merci), au rang suivant, on tricote le jeté à l'envers. Bon tricot!

Kate Andersen 26.03.2018 - 22:49:

PS med mønsteret mener jeg DIAGRAMMET. Mvh Kate

Kate Andersen 26.03.2018 - 15:15:

Flot skøn tunika. Men AK der er ikke overensstemmelse mellem modellen og mønsteret. Jeg følger nøjagtig mål og strikkefastheden og Ifølge mønstret bliver det en meget kort V udskæring men hvis vi ser på den viste model så er der en lang flot V udskæring. Indtagningen på modellen starter ved starten af et \"blad\" men ifølge mønstret starter indtagningen først halvt oppe på \"bladet\"! Ifølge mønstret går V hals helt til halsen. Håber på hurtig svar. Mvh Kate

DROPS Design 04.04.2018 kl. 14:47:

Hej Kate, Jeg kan se hvad du mener. Forklaringen er nok at der ifølge diagrammet bliver en naturlig indtagning når man hopper et omslag over i siden mod V-halsen. Jeg kan spørge Design men du må ikke regne med at diagrammet bliver lavet om. :)

Else 04.03.2018 - 12:50:

Jeg mangler angivelser af symboler i alle felter under beskrivelsen af diagrammet

DROPS Design 06.03.2018 kl. 17:02:

Hej Else, diagram-symboler og tekster finder du lige over diagrammerne (mellem opskriften og diagrammerne) God fornøjelse!
