I'm having a problem with sizing and stitch count. I worked my poncho per the A.1A and A.1D diagrams and limited written instructions. I do not arrive at the stitch counts 108, 128, 132 as stated in the pattern. There is no difference in A.1C in the instructions between L/XL and XXL/XXXL. The A.1C repeats is 13 for both sizes. Should there be an adjustment for L/XL at this point?

DROPS Design 22.06.2018 kl. 08:46:

Dear Joelle, you work one more row in largest size compared to 2nd size, ie in size L/XL you will stop with row 7 = 128 sts between the ch-spaces and in size XXL/XXXL you will stop with row 8 = 136 sts between the ch-spaces. Happy crocheting!

Angela 13.06.2018 - 12:40:

Goedemiddag, Ik kan best zeggen dat ik ervaren ben in het haken en breien, maar ook uit dit patroon kom ik niet. Kom ik steken te kort, maak ik ze bij, vervolgens moet ik volgens patroon gaan minderen in de volgende toer en kom er nog niet uit. Jammer, want eigenlijk heb ik nooit last met het lezen en maken van jullie patronen. Na drie pogingen ga ik op zoek naar een ander patroon. :) Vriendelijke groetjes Angela

Sabine 17.05.2018 - 12:19:

Ik krijg in het begin ,na het haken van de groepen van 5 stokjes en 1losse overslaan , 26 groepen van 5 stokjes. Maar moet er 25 krijgen (maat S/M). Tot tweemaal toe en aantal steken klopt. Blijven er dan losse over in het midden? Jammer dat ik de poncho niet beter kan bekijken, de foto is niet heel duidelijk en er hangt een ketting voor het midden.

DROPS Design 31.05.2018 kl. 16:54:

Hoi Sabine, Je doet het wel goed hoor. Je haakt eest 3 lossen, dan 1 stokje in elk van de volgende 4 lossen, dan herhaal je wat tussen de *-* staat in totaal 25 keer en deze 25 keer komt dus bovenop de eerste serie van 5 stokjes.

Ineke 13.05.2018 - 12:46:

Ik wil dolgraag deze poncho haken, maar struikel al direkt bij het begin van 1a. Geen idee hoe of ik dat moet lezen. Ook in de winkel kwamen ze er niet uit ! Video’s bekeken zonder resultaat.\\r\\nAlle hoop is dus gericht op jullie antwoord.\\r\\nBij voorbaat heel hartelijk dank. Ineke

DROPS Design 31.05.2018 kl. 17:02:

Dag Ineke, Als het goed is heb je reeds een cirkel van lossen gehaakt met daarop stokjes. Als je met A.1 begint, zie je midden onder een symbool staan dat een stokje voor moet stellen. Rechts daarnaast staat een sterretje, dat aangeeft dat deze toer al gehaak is en deze toer sla je dus over. Je begint dus in dat eerste stokje te haken: 2 stokjes, 3 lossen, 2 stokjes (=A.1a). Dan haak je 12 keer A.1c en in het volgende stokje met de markeerdraad haak je A.1d en zo ga je verder volgens de beschrijving.

Laura 01.05.2018 - 14:23:

Hi, do you have a written version without charts?

DROPS Design 01.05.2018 kl. 21:15:

Dear Laura, sorry, but there is no written out version for the patterns of the charts. However, there are detailed explanations for each symbol, just above the charts. You can also find videos to help you (links at the left side of the page just below the pictures), and you can also ask for help to make sense of the charts at the store you bought your DROPS yarn from. Happy Knitting!

Zippe 26.03.2018 - 13:16:

Jeg tror der er en fejl i opskriften. Der står, at man skal lave 4 udtagninger, men når man følger opskriften, ender det med at blive 6. Det ser ikke rigtigt ud, at skuldrene er placeret så tæt på midt for og midt bag og ligner ikke billedet. På et andet af jeres poncho mønstre, med samme halsudskæring, er der kun 4 udtagninger. Midt for og midt bag, og en på hver skulder, som er placeret midt mellem for og bag. Se mønsteret Light's Embrace

Lucia Gregoli 22.03.2018 - 17:52:

Non riesco a capire dove fare le 7 diminuzioni nella taglia l\\xl nel primo giro a maglie alte e poi nei suggerimenti per le diminuzioni c\'e\' scritto di saltare una m. bassa ma non ci sono maglie basse. ci sto provando da un pomeriggio intero ma non riesco propio a capire come andare avanti nel lavoro. grazie.

Tineke 09.03.2018 - 16:26:

Ik kom niet uit. Heb A1a/ A1f nu 1x gehaakt. Tot en met toer 6. Kom ik op 112 st per zijde A1 is 2 steken, 1B is 11 st, 1C is 6 st, 1D is 13st, 1E is 25 st, 1D is 13 st, 1E is 6 st, 1F 11 st. Is 112 st. \r\n\r\n\r\nHoe start ik met A3a?? Toer moet beginnen met 3 lossen volgens tekening. Dan A3b over 3 stokjes terwijl er 4 steken getekent zijn en A3c over 2 steken terwijl er 3 steken getekent zijn

DROPS Design 19.03.2018 kl. 09:04:

Hallo Tineke, Het laaste stokje van A.3c en het eerste stokje van A.3b haak je in de 3 lossen van de vorige toer van A.3a.

Jette 09.03.2018 - 02:41:

I can not get the first A1 pattern to look or feel right. It says to place 4 markers, but if you follow the instructions it will be 6 markers. 1 mid front, 1 mid back and 2 on each shoulder. To me it seems like the shoulder markers are placed way too close to the mid front and back.

DROPS Design 09.04.2018 kl. 11:23:

Dear Jette, thanks for your feedback, pattern has been edited (see correction ). Happy crocheting!

Line 09.03.2018 - 00:13:

Der står at man skal sætte 4 markører - men i forklaringen er der 6; 1 for, 1 bag - og 4 skulderudtagninger. Er dette korrekt? Har hæklet de første 4 omgange - og synes ikke det ser rigtigt ud. Mvh. Line

DROPS Design 20.03.2018 kl. 11:39:

Hej Line, jeg tror det stemmer at der skal være 6 mærker, 1 midt foran og bagpå og så 1 på hver side af de 12 midterste masker midt foran og bagpå. Men jeg tjekker lige med design :)
