EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

----------------------------------------------------------

GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

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

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.4.
While decreasing and increasing in diagram A.2b and A.3b, the number of stitches can vary according to this with 4 stitches, if decrease has been done.

INCREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches on row (e.g. 122 stitches) and divide stitches by number of increases to be done (e.g. 20) = 6.1. 
In this example increase by making 1 yarn over after approx. every 6th stitch. On next round work yarn over twisted to avoid hole.

DECREASE TIP (applies to sleeves): 
Decrease 1 stitch on each side of marker thread as follows: Work until 3 stitches remain before marker thread, knit 2 together, knit 2 stitches (marker thread is between these stitches), slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 2 stitches decreased in total).

PONCHO JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE GARMENT:
Worked in the round on circular needle, top down in angle down to armhole. Now divide yoke for body and sleeves. Work body in the round, before dividing it into front and back piece and there is a vent in the sides, piece is then worked back and forth.
Sleeves are worked in the round on double pointed needles.

YOKE:
Cast on 122-126-130-146-146-154 stitches on circular needle size 3.5 mm with Sky. Work 2 ridges in GARTER STITCH in the round - read explanation above. Knit 1 round and increase 20-20-20-24-24-24 stitches evenly - read INCREASE TIP = 142-146-150-170-170-178 stitches. Purl 1 round.
Switch to circular needle size 4.5 mm.
Now work and increase stitches as follows:
Left sleeve: Work 1 stitch in stocking stitch and insert 1st marker in this stitch, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), 6-6-6-8-6-6 stitches in stocking stitch, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), 1 stitch in stocking stitch and insert 2nd marker in this stitch.
Back piece: Work A.1a (= 11 stitches), A.2a (= 13 stitches), 1 stitch in stocking stitch and insert 3rd marker in this stitch, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), 6-7-8-12-13-15 stitches in stocking stitch, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), 1 stitch in stocking stitch and insert 4th marker in this stitch (= mid stitch), 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), 6-7-8-12-13-15 stitches in stocking stitch, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), 1 stitch in stocking stitch and insert 5th marker in this stitch, A.3a (= 13 stitches), A.4a (= 11 stitches).
Right sleeve: Work 1 stitch in stocking stitch and insert 6th marker in this stitch, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), 6-6-6-8-6-6 stitches in stocking stitch, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), 1 stitch in stocking stitch and insert 7th marker in this stitch.
Front piece: Work A.1a over 11 stitches, A.2a over 13 stitches, 1 stitch in stocking stitch and insert 8th marker in this stitch, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), 6-7-8-12-13-15 stitches in stocking stitch, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), 1 stitch in stocking stitch and insert 9th marker in this stitch (= mid stitch), 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), 6-7-8-12-13-15 stitches in stocking stitch, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), 1 stitch in stocking stitch and insert 10th marker in this stitch, A.3a over 13 stitches, A.4a over 11 stitches.

2 stitches have been increased on each sleeve and 14 stitches on each front/back piece (i.e. 2 stitches for raglan, 2 stitches at middle stitch and 10 stitches increased in pattern A.1a to A.4a) = 174-178-182-202-202-210 stitches.
Yarn overs on sleeves and on each side of the middle stitches are NOT worked twisted (= hole), while yarn over after A.2 and before A.3 are worked twisted (= not hole).
REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION!
When A.1a to A.4a have been worked 1 time vertically, A.1b to A.4b over A.1a to A.4a.
Continue increase like this (first increase is already explained)
Increase with 1 yarn over after 1st, 4th, 6th and 9th marker and before 2nd, 4th, 7th and 9th marker every other round 26-29-31-33-36-39 times in total (i.e. 25-28-30-32-35-38 more times). Do not work these yarn overs twisted = holes.
Increase with 1 yarn over after 3rd and 8th marker and before 5th and 10th marker every 4th round 9-11-14-12-16-19 times (i.e. 8-10-13-11-15-18 more times. Work these yarn overs twisted = not holes.
when all increases are done, there are 60-66-70-76-80-86 stitches on each sleeve and 143-155-167-175-191-207 stitches on each front/back piece = 406-442-474-502-542-586 stitches in total.
Piece measures approx. 22-24-26-27-30-32 cm from cast-on edge measured mid on top of sleeve.
On next round divide piece for body and sleeves as follows: (last round worked is 1 round with increases).
Left sleeve: Slip the first 60-66-70-76-80-86 stitches on a stitch holder for sleeve and cast on 8-8-8-12-12-12 stitches under sleeve. Insert 1 marker in the middle of these stitches.
Back piece: Work pattern and stocking stitch as before (= 143-155-167-175-191-207 stitches).
Right sleeve: Slip stitches on a stitch holder and cast on stitches under sleeve as on left sleeve.
Front piece: Work pattern and stocking stitch as before (= 143-155-167-175-191-207 stitches).

BODY:
= 302-326-350-374-406-438 stitches. Displace round so that it begins at marker thread under sleeve. Work stitches for armhole in stocking stitch. Continue as follows:
ROUND/ROW 1 (= from right side):
Back piece: Work 2 stitches in stocking stitch, slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over stitch worked (= 1 stitch decreased), A.1b, A.2b and stocking stitch until middle stitch, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), 1 stitch in stocking stitch (= middle stitch), 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), work stocking stitch, A.3b and A.4b until 4 stitches remain before marker thread, knit 2 together (= 1 stitch decreased), 2 stitches in stocking stitch.
Front piece: Work as back piece.
I.e. decrease 4 stitches in total and increase 4 stitches in total, so that number of stitches is the same.
ROUND/ROW 2 (= from wrong side):
Work pattern and stocking stitch as before (do not work yarn overs twisted = holes).
ROUND/ROW 3:
Back piece: Work pattern and stocking stitch as before until middle stitch, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), 1 stitch in stocking stitch (= middle stitch), 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), work stocking stitch and pattern until marker thread (= 2 stitches increased).
Front piece: Work as back piece.
I.e. increase 4 stitches in total.
ROUND/ROW 4:
Work pattern and stocking stitch as before (do not work yarn overs twisted = holes).
Repeat rounds 1 to 4. I.e. stitches in A.1b to A.4b are decreased and stitches in stocking stitch are increased mid front/back. When there is not enough stitch to cable, continue with knit over knit and purl over purl over pattern.
Continue like this until piece measures 18-18-18-19-19-19 cm from where body was divided from sleeves, adjust so that next round is 2nd or 4th round. Now divide front and back piece at the marker threads and finish each part separately (= approx. 12 cm vent in the sides).

BACK PIECE:
Continue 1st to 4th row (work first row from right side) back and forth, but now work the outermost 2 stitches in each side in GARTER STITCH – read explanation above. Continue like this until piece measures 26-26-26-27-27-27 cm from where body was divided from sleeves = approx. 183-195-207-221-237-253 stitches. Work 1 row from wrong side as before, but adjust number of stitches to 92-100-104-112-120-128 stitches on each side of middle stitch, i.e. increase approx. 1-3-1-2-2-2 stitches evenly on each side of middle stitch (= 2-6-2-4-4-4 stitches increased in total) = 185-201-209-225-241-257 stitches. Switch to circular needle size 3.5 mm.
Now work a rib edge over all stitches as follows:
ROW 1 (= from right side): Work 2 stitches in garter stitch, slip 1 stitch knitwise, knit 1, pass slipped stitch (= 1 stitch decreased), work * 2 stitches in stocking stitch, 2 stitches in garter stitch *, work from *-* until middle stitch, 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), 1 stitch in stocking stitch (= middle stitch), 1 yarn over (= 1 stitch increased), work * 2 stitches in garter stitch, 2 stitches in stocking stitch *, work from *-* until 4 stitches remain, knit 2 together (= 1 stitch decreased) and finish with 2 stitches in garter stitch.
ROW 2 (= from wrong side): Purl over stocking stitch and garter stitch over garter stitch, work the increased stitches in rib (there should be holes).
Repeat rows 1 to 2. I.e. on every row from right side increase 2 stitches and decreased 2 stitches so that number of stitches is the same. When piece measures 30-30-30-31-31-31 cm, from where body was divided from sleeves, cast off by knitting from right side. Piece measures approx. 54-56-58-60-63-65 cm from shoulder and down on the shortest.

FRONT PIECE:
Work as back piece.

SLEEVE:
Sleeves are worked in the round on double pointed needles.
Slip the 60-66-70-76-80-86 stitches from stitch holder in one side of piece on double pointed needles size 4.5 mm and pick up 1 stitch in each of the 8-8-8-12-12-12 stitches cast on under sleeve = 68-74-78-88-92-98 stitches. Insert 1 marker thread in the middle of the 8-8-8-12-12-12 stitches (= mid under sleeve). Work in stocking stitch in the round. When piece measures 1 cm from where sleeves was divided from body, decrease 1 stitch on each side of marker thread - read DECREASE TIP.
Decrease like this every 2½-2½-2-1½-1½-1 cm 12-13-15-18-20-21 times in total = 44-48-48-52-52-56 stitches.
When piece measures 37-36-34-33-31-29 cm from where sleeves were divide from body, switch to double pointed needles size 3.5 mm and work rib (= knit 2/2 stitches in garter stitch). Cast off by knitting when piece measures 41-40-38-37-35-33 cm from where sleeve was divided from body. Work the other sleeve the same way.

Bonjour. Est-il possible de faire ce modèle pour une taille 6 ans ? Je le trouve très joli et j'aimerais bien pouvoir le réaliser pour ma fille. Merci d'avance.

DROPS Design 27.05.2019 kl. 08:24:

Bonjour Mme Palis, ce modèle est uniquement disponible en taille adulte actuellement. Nous ne sommes malheureusement pas en mesure de pouvoir adapter chacun de nos modèles à chaque demande, pour toute assistance complémentaire, merci de bien vouloir contacter votre magasin DROPS et/ou un forum tricot. Bon tricot!

Sind im Diagramm nur die Hinreihen beschrieben?

DROPS Design 02.05.2019 kl. 09:36:

Liebe Frau Kompletti, alle Reihen sind in den Diagrammen gezeigt - hier lesen Sie mehr über Diagram. Viel Spaß beim stricken!

DUCHENE 03.03.2019 - 18:10:

Bonjour, je ne vois pas très bien comment se terminent les torsades sur les côtés de ce pull... Sont-elles arrêtées peu à peu au fil des diminutions sur les 4 mailles jersey en début et fin de rang ? J'ai arrêté mon travail quelques sous les bras.......en attendant votre réponse. Merci d'avance

DROPS Design 04.03.2019 kl. 10:59:

Bonjour Mme Duchene, tout à fait, quand on diminue sur les côtés (sous les manches), on a de moins en moins de mailles pour les torsades, on tricote alors ces mailles en jersey (on ne les croise plus car on n'en a plus suffisamment). Bon tricot!

Anne Blundell 08.02.2019 - 08:53:

I really love this pattern but do not like the v shaped hem would it be easy to finish the jumper with a straight hem?

DROPS Design 08.02.2019 kl. 09:56:

Dear Mrs Blundell, we are unfortunately not able to adapt every pattern to every single request, but you can take inspiration from this pattern (please note that the tension is different on this one). For any individual assistance you are welcome to request help from your DROPS store - even per mail or telephone. Happy knitting!

Henriette Welten 13.01.2019 - 16:34:

Skal man begynne å øke samtidig som man starter å strikke A2a-A2d?

DROPS Design 16.01.2019 kl. 14:40:

Hei Henriette. Første omgang med mønster strikker du etter diagram A.1a-A.4a, dette er også første omgang med økinger. Etter at A.1a-A.4a er strikket (2 omganger) strikker du A.1b-A.4b samtidig som du fortsetter å øke som forklart. God fornøyelse
