PONCHO - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Worked in the round, top down. Work entire piece in 2 strands Alpaca with STRIPES - see explanation above.

PONCHO:
Work 128-144-162 chain stitches with hook size 5 mm and 1 strand off white and 1 strand wheat. Form a ring by working 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch.

ROUND 1: Work 1 treble crochet – READ CROCHET TIP in explanation above, work 1 treble crochet in each of the first 6-7-7 treble crochets, skip 1 chain stitch, * work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 7-8-8 chain stitches, skip 1 chain stitch *, work from *-* the entire round and finish with 1 slip stitch in first treble crochet = 112-128-144 treble crochets.

ROUND 2: Work 1 treble crochet, work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 27-31-35 treble crochets, * work 4 chain stitches, work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 28-32-36 treble crochets *, work from *-* 3 times in total and finish with 4 chain stitches and 1 slip stitch in first treble crochet. There are now 4 chain spaces on round with 28-32-36 treble crochets between each of the chain spaces. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!

Now work according to diagrams A.1-A.3 as follows:
NOTE: Round with star has already been worked, begin on next round
Work A.1 until 2 treble crochets remain before the first chain space, work A.2 one time (= first shoulder), work A.1 until 2 treble crochets remain before next chain space, work A.3 one time (= mid front, insert a marker here), work A.1 until 2 treble crochets remain before next chain space, work A.2 one time (= other shoulder), work A.1 until 2 treble crochets remain before the last chain space, work A.3 one time (= mid back, insert a marker here) and finish round with 1 slip stitch in first stitch. When diagrams have been worked 1 time vertically, there are 176-192-208 stitches on round.

Now the increase at the shoulders is done. Only increase mid front and mid back onwards. Work according to diagrams A.1 and A.3 as follows:
Work A.1 until 2 treble crochets remain before the first chain space with marker (= mid front), work A.3 one time, work A.1 until 2 treble crochets remain before the next chain space with marker (= mid back), work A.3 one time and finish with 1 slip stitch in first stitch. Continue to work like this until all stripes are done, piece measures approx. 42-46-48 cm from neck to bottom, along the shortest side, adjust so that last round is a round with treble crochets (2nd or 4th round in A.1/A.3). Fasten off.

TWINED STRING:
Cut 4 lengths off white and 4 lengths wheat of 5 metres each. Twine the strands tog until they resist, fold the strands double so that they twine. Fasten 3 beads at each end of string. Tie a knot at the ends so that the strings is twined and the beads stay on. Cut the end of string on the underside of knot so that the end fringes. Pull the string up and down in 3rd round around the neck - start and finish mid front.

Hej! Nu har jag räknat på diagrammet och jag undrar om det kan vara en otydlighet eller ett missförstånd. (Jag virkar den minsta stl.) Sista var varvet innan diagrammet (egentligen första varvet m stjärna) har jag 28 stolpar med 4 luftmaskor mellan = 128 maskor. Sedan ökas varven med 16 luftmaskor dvs andra varvet i diagrammet blir 144, nästa 160, nästa 176 och det sista ökas endast med 8 och blir därför 184. Tänkte om 176 i beskrivningen var innan sista varvet virkas?

DROPS Design 09.08.2019 kl. 10:51:

Hej Dina, vi forstår ikke rigtig dit spørgsmål. Men hvis du følger diagrammet, så ser du at det er 2 forskellige omgange som gentages igennem hele ponchoen (ett varv med st i varje m, och ett varv med 1lm mellan varje st). Og der virkas 4 nya stolpar i varje hörn (2st, 2lm, 2st). Lycka till :)

Ingrid Van Sloun 06.08.2019 - 17:27:

Maar als ik 32 stokjes tussen de bogen heb, dan kan ik toch nooit beginnen en eindigen met een losse? Of wordt die laatste losse voor de twee stokjes van de hoek niet boven het laatste stokje (dus stokje 32 van de vorige toer) gehaakt?

DROPS Design 10.08.2019 kl. 16:44:

Dag Ingrid,

Ik heb het patroon nog een keer goed bekeken en ik denk dat het in dit geval zo is dat je niet precies uit hoeft te komen met een losse boven een stokje van de vorige toer.

Dina 06.08.2019 - 15:16:

Har nu rivit upp två gånger för att det blivit fel när jag virkar en gång efter diagrammet. Denna andra gång landar jag på 188 maskor och inte 176. Kan ni ange vad resp varv har för antal maskor så jag kan hitta mitt fel? Tack på förhand!

DROPS Design 09.08.2019 kl. 12:52:

Hej Dina, du tager ud/øker 4 st i varje hörn. Lycka till :)

Ingrid 03.08.2019 - 21:55:

Wanneer ik A2 heb gehaakt, de toer na het *, dan begin ik na de lossenboog volgens het patroon van A2 met een losse. Dan ga ik volgens A1 weer verder met stokje en losse. Maar wanneer ik dan bij de laatste twee stokjes voor de volgende lossenboog kom, is mijn laatste steek van A1 geen losse maar een stokje. Hierdoor krijg ik twee stokjes achter elkaar. Wat doe ik fout?

DROPS Design 06.08.2019 kl. 15:58:

Dag Ingrid,

Toch zou je volgens het patroon uit moeten komen met een losse vlak voordat je het lossenboogje met de 2 stokjes ernaast maakt. Zou je na kunnen tellen of je misschien per ongeluk een steek over het hoofd hebt gezien op de toer?

Nina 29.07.2019 - 23:37:

Vielen Dank für die prompte, freundliche und sehr hilfreiche Antwort.

Nina 29.07.2019 - 20:38:

Muss ich A1von unten nach oben bis zur Zunahme A2 oder A3 stricken, dann wieder A1 bis zur nächsten Zunahme oder wie ist die Anleitung zu verstehen?

DROPS Design 29.07.2019 kl. 21:23:

Liebe Nina, richtig, die Diagramme werden alle von unten nach oben gelesen. Sie häkeln fortlaufend in der Runde A.1 (d.h. in der 1. Runde 1 Stäbchen + 1 Luftmasche im Wechsel), jedoch bei den Luftmaschenbögen an den Schultern und der vorderen und hinteren Mitte A.2 bzw. A.3 statt A.1. Die jeweils erste Runde der Diagramme (d.h. die unterste dargestellte Runde mit dem Sternchen) zeigt an, in welche Maschen die Maschen der nächsten Runde gehäkelt werden.

Nina 29.07.2019 - 20:35:

Muss ich A1 bis zur Zunahme von unten nach oben stricke, dann Zunahme, dann wieder A1 bis zur nächsten Zunahme oder wie ist die Anleitung zu verstehen?

Emmely 15.06.2019 - 13:00:

Når man er færdig med udtagningerne på skulderne, og man hækler A1 og A3, skal man så stadig springe række 1 over?

DROPS Design 17.06.2019 kl. 08:37:

Hei Emmely. Ja, rad 1 i A.1 viser forrige rad så denne er kun for å vise hvordan diagramemt heklse i maskene under. Når diagrammet gjentas i høyden begynner du på rad 2 på samme måte som første gang. God fornøyelse

Marit Strindlund 27.05.2019 - 11:57:

Hej jättefin! men var får man tag på färgen ockra 2923?

DROPS Design 27.05.2019 kl. 13:55:

Hei Marit. Denne fargene skal være tilgjengelig i våre butikker, men det kan være er litt varierende hvilke farger de ulike butikkene har inne og hvilke de fører. Da må du nesten ta kontakt med den enkelte butikk. her er en liste over alle våre butikker i sverige, inkludert nettbutikker. God fornøyelse

Helene Leuverink 21.05.2019 - 16:03:

Is het de bedoeling dat je je werk keert na elke toer, of blijf je steeds aan de goede kant werken?

DROPS Design 22.05.2019 kl. 12:52:

Dag Helene,

Het is de bedoeling dat je steeds aan de goede kant blijft werken.
