EXPLANATION FOR THE PATTERN:

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

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 to A.4.

CROCHET INFORMATION:
Diagram A.1 shows how rounds begin and end, and are worked in addition to A.2.
Diagram A.3 shows how rounds begin and end, and are worked in addition to A.4.

INCREASE TIP (evenly):
To calculate how to increase evenly, use the total number of stitches (e.g. 96 stitches) and divide this by number of increases to be done (e.g. 48) = 2. I.e. in this example increase by working 2 treble crochets in same stitch in every other treble crochet.

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

PONCHO JUMPER - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Work in the round top down. Work sleeves in the round, top down. Work neck edge in the round at the end.

YOKE:
Work 112-119-126 chain stitches on hook size 5 mm with Big Merino and form a ring with 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch. Work 3 chain stitches, 1 treble crochet in each of the first 6 chain stitches, * skip 1 chain stitch, work 1 treble crochet in each of the next 6 chain stitches *, work from *-* 15-16-17 times in total, finish with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning of round = 96-102-108 treble crochets + 3 chain stitches.
Then work pattern as follows:
Read CROCHET INFO, work A.2A 16-17-18 times in total on round – on round marked with arrow increase 48-54-60 treble crochets evenly – read INCREASE TIP = 144-156-168 treble crochets. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
Then repeat A.2A 24-26-28 times in width.
When A.2A is done, work A.2B over A.2A – on round marked with arrow increase 48-54-60 treble crochets evenly = 192-210-228 treble crochets.
Then repeat A.2B 32-35-38 times in width.
When A.2B is done, work the first 6 rounds in A.2A over A.2B – on round marked with arrow increase 48-54-60 treble crochets evenly = 240-264-288 treble crochets.
Then repeat A.2A 40-44-48 times in width. Continue until 6th round in A.2A (= round after round with arrow) = 80-88-96 chain spaces. The piece measures approx. 32 cm in all sizes.
Insert 4 markers in piece as follows (without working):
Insert first marker after the first 13-15-16 chain spaces (= half back piece), insert second marker after the next 14-14-16 chain spaces (= sleeve), insert third marker after the next 26-30-32 chain spaces (= front piece), and insert fourth marker after the next 14-14-16 chain spaces (= sleeve), 13-15-16 chain spaces remain on round after last marker (= half back piece). Now divide body and sleeves at the markers, and finish each part separately. NOW MEASURE THE PIECE FROM HERE!

BODY:
= 52-60-64 chain spaces. Continue until A.2A has been worked over these stitches AT THE SAME TIME on first round increase 24 treble crochets evenly (then repeat A.2A 30-34-36 times in width) = 180-204-216 treble crochets.
When A.2A is done, work A.2B over A.2A – on round marked with arrow increase 36-42-48 treble crochets evenly = 216-246-264 treble crochets (then repeat A.2B 36-41-44 times in width).
When A.2B has been done, work A.2C over A.2B 0-1-2 times in total vertically. Cut and fasten the yarn. Body measures approx. 14-18-22 cm from division.

SLEEVE:
= 14-14-16 chain spaces. Begin mid under sleeve and then work as follows: Remember CROCHET INFO, continue with 7th round in A.2A over these stitches (= 7-7-8 times in width), and work until 8th round.
Then repeat rounds 6 to 8 0-0-1 more time. Cut and fasten the yarn. Sleeve measures approx. 3-3-7 cm from division.
Work the other sleeve the same way.

NECK EDGE:
Work around the neck as follows - NOTE: Work in chain stitches where treble crochets were worked but do not work in the chain stitches that were skipped: Begin mid back, fasten strand to piece with 1 slip stitch in a treble crochet, work 1 chain stitch, 1 double crochet in next treble crochet, 3 chain stitches, skip 3-1-3 treble crochets, 1 double crochet in next treble crochet, * 3 chain stitches, skip 3 treble crochets, 1 double crochet in next treble crochet *, work from *-* 22-24-25 times in total, work 3 chain stitches, skip 3 treble crochets and finish with 1 slip stitch in 1st chain stitch at beginning of round = 24-26-27 chain spaces. Then work A.4 in the round – remember CROCHET INFO. When A.4 is done, fasten off.

Je reviens vers vous car je ne comprends pas A2A au total en largeur. A2A représente 10 motifs. Si c’est en largeur dois je crocheter le 1er et juste après le second car moi j’ai raisonné avant de vous écrire crocheter un tour de 1 er motif et enchaîner un tour du 2ème motif etc . De plus quand vous écrivez 16 fois et ensuite 24 fois vous rajoutez 8 tours? Je suis perdue!!!!

DROPS Design 19.08.2019 kl. 08:49:

Bonjour Mme Huet, je ne suis pas sûre de bien comprendre les 10 motifs dont vous parlez. A.2A se crochète sur 6 mailles et 10 rangs. Vous crochetez d'abord le 1er rang de A.2A sur toutes les mailles, puis le 2ème rang et ainsi de suite. c'est ainsi qu'on lit des diagrammes crochet. Bon crochet!

Huet 16.08.2019 - 11:13:

Merci de votre réponse je n’avais absolument rien compris!!!! Je recommence tout!!!

Huet Nicole 15.08.2019 - 18:03:

Bonjour quand vous écrivez 16 fois au total en largeur cela veut dire 16 tours?, ou 24 fois je n’arrive pas à comprendre merci de vos éclaircissements

DROPS Design 16.08.2019 kl. 08:56:

Bonjour Mme Huet, quand on indique "répéter de *à* 15 fois au total, on doit crocheter la partie entre les * un total de 15, on aura donc 15 "motifs" + les mailles indiquées au début du tour avant la partie entre les * + celles indiquées à la fin du tour après la partie entre les *. Au début par ex, on doit avoir 96 brides + les 3 ml du début du tour et on pourra donc répéter 16 fois A.2 (= 16 x 6 m = 96 m). Bon crochet!

Hello, I follow your page for many years (10 years +). I liked your crochet templates in the PAST. For a few years you have unfortunately changed the description totally. I do not know what it should, the internationally valid symbols for e.g. need no extra symbols, your charts are "very special" puzzling and I have never seen anywhere -and I have a large collection of Patterns from around the world. Totally impractical, mega awkward and just annoying. Please take the old symbols again

Dear Eve, thanks for your loyalty, should you need any assistance reading crochet diagrams, you will find here some more explanations. Remember your DROPS store will always be able to assist you - even per mail or telephone - for any further individual help. Happy crocheting!

Darlene A Fetterman 23.05.2019 - 17:46:

I love this Poncho Sweater, but as I read down it is always referring me to the charts I don't read charts, it takes to much time. I have been crocheting for 59 years and I never had this problem before. Why can't you have the written pattern and the charts together as other patterns come that way.

DROPS Design 24.05.2019 kl. 07:45:

Dear Mrs Fetterman, The DROPS patterns are knitted and crocheted by thousands and thousands of people  around the world. We understand however that in certain countries, with different knitting/crochet traditions than Scandinavia, our patterns might be written in a way that differs from what some are used to. But of course we want everyone to understand our patterns, so that’s why we have created an extensive library of tutorial videos as well as step by step lessons that explain how to follow the techniques we use and how to read the diagrams in our patterns. Give them a try!
