INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1, A.2, A3 and A.4. The diagrams show all the rows in the pattern seen from the right side.
----------------------------------------------------------

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

Cast on 82-94-111 stitches with circular needle size 5 mm and 1 strand Alpaca and 1 strand Brushed Alpaca Silk. Work 3 RIDGES – see description above. On the next row from the right side, work PATTERN as follows in the different sizes:

SIZE S/M:
Work 8 stitches in garter stitch, A.1 over 12 stitches, A.2 over 28 stitches, A.1 over 12 stitches, A.3 over 17 stitches and 5 stitches in garter stitch.

SIZE L/XL:
Work 8 stitches in garter stitch, A.1 over 12 stitches, A.2 over 28 stitches, A.1 over 12 stitches, A.3 over 17 stitches, A.1 over 12 stitches and 5 stitches in garter stitch.

SIZE XXL/XXXL:
Work 8 stitches in garter stitch, A.1 over 12 stitches, A.4 over 45 stitches, A.1 over 12 stitches, A.3 over 17 stitches, A.1 over 12 stitches and 5 stitches in garter stitch.

Continue working pattern like this until the piece measures 45-53-60 cm. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! Now insert a marker on the left side of the piece seen from the right side. This marker will be used in assembly. Continue working as before until the piece measures 127-135-150 cm from the cast-on edge. Work 3 ridges. Loosely cast off, cut and fasten the strands.

ASSEMBLY:
Lay the short side (cast-off edge) towards the long side so that the right corner (seen from the right side) lies towards the left corner from cast-on edge (seen from the right side) – see sketch. Start at these corners and sew the sides together in the outermost loop of the stitches; the marker shows how far up the long side the short side will be sewn.

I would need to print the pattern in order to be able to use it for knitting. I don't usually sit at the computer when knitting. I do not see a print icon anywhere on the page. Thank you!

Dear Mrs Hardin, you will find the "print" icon between yarn required (with links) and "Pattern instructions". Happy knitting!
