The perfect part for the transition is this fashionable poncho . The trendy part keeps us warm and makes us just as good on the autumn walk as on the sofa at home.
And best of all: With our instructions, you can easily knit it yourself.
That's what you need:
- 50 g ball of wool 50% pure new wool,
- 50% polyacyl run length 50 g = 105 m color 00088 (passion color) balls 10
- Check the bands and use only balls of the same color lot. The material consumption can vary from person to person.
- from Milward each 1 circular needle 5.5 mm 60 cm and 80 cm long.
- from Milward a needlelock 5.0 mm
- from Milward 1 crochet hook 5.0 mm
- a woolen needle for sewing the threads
That's how it works:
Smooth right: 14 M and 22 Rd = 10 cm x 10 cm If the mesh size is different, use thicker or thinner needles.
Cuff Pattern: Knit 3 sts to the right, 3 sts to the left. Smooth right: Knit all sts on the right in rounds. Increases: Knit 1 st right crosswise out of the cross thread.
The poncho is knitted in rounds and started with the turtleneck.
Cast on 84 sts with the double pointed needles, evenly distribute the sts = 21 sts per needle and close to the round. For the turtleneck knit 28 cm in cuffs in rounds. Now mark every 21 sts for the back and front center and the shoulder line. Knit the marked st on the left in each round, knit the sts in between.
Inc 1 st on every other row before and after each st = 8 sts = 8 sts per round. After 24 sts, increase 96 sts = 180 sts. Shoulder line increases are now complete. Continue the increases at the back and in the middle, increasing 41x 1 sts on both sides of the marked st on every other round = 4 sts in each round. After 82 dc inc 164 sts = 344 sts.
Knit 2 rows without increasing, knit every 3rd and 4th st on the 1st round and work 1 YO. On the following round knit the envelopes on the right, then bind off all sts, knit on the right. Total length measured in knitting direction = 49 cm, measured in the back or front center = approx. 68 cm.
Stretch the poncho, moisten and let it dry.
Cut threads of approx. 40 cm in length and fold 3 threads in half. Then tie the threads into the bottom edge of the poncho as follows: Pull the loop through the hole with the crochet hook, then pull the loose ends through the loop and tighten. The fringes may still cut to the same length. Sew all threads with the wool needle.
