Can anyone make any sense of this pattern ?!
Hi everyone

This is a pattern for a beginner/intermediate level aran poncho. Most of it is fairly straightforward, it is the part highlighted in red that makes no sense to me....

Can anyone make it sound a little less like gobbledegook ?

Thanks x


To make:
Poncho Piece (make two)
Holding 2 strands of yarn tog, cast on 80 sts.
Row 1 (right side): [K1, p1] 5 times, [work Row1 of Panel Pat B, KB1, work Row 1 of Panel Pat A, KB1] twice, work Row 1 of Panel Pat B, [p1,k1] 5 times.
Row 2: [P1, k1] 5 times, [work Row 2 of Panel Pat B, PB1, work Row 2 of Panel Pat A, PB1] twice, work Row 2 of Panel Pat B, [k1, p1] 5 times.
Panel pats are now in position.

Cont in pat, working 9 complete Panel Pat A, thus ending with Row 16. Cast off in pat.

This row is giving you the set up of the pattern panels for the poncho. Basically folllow the steps across the cast on sts.
Row 1 [K1, p1] 5 times, Panel B, KB1, Panel A, KB1, Panel B, KB1, Panel A, KB1, Panel B, KB1, [p1,k1] 5 times.
On row 2 you'll follow the panel set up the reverse order, working row 2 of the panels A and B.
This is the sequence you follow for the rest of the rows.

Really we only need approximately the red portion of the pattern. Please delete the rest so that we don't have any problems with copyright.

Oh. Sorry.....

I'm probably just being dumb, but I'm afraid it still doesn't make much sense to me. I don't really get what Panel A and Panel B are. As the poncho is made up of two pieces of knitting, are the two panels on two separate pieces of knitting or the same piece ? And how does that row of pattern you've just described transfer over the 80 stitches cast on ? It looks like only 25 stitches, and I can't see how that would fit into 80......

The panels are both used in a single piece, 3 repeats of panel B and 2 of panel A.
The directions give you the pattern of sts for panel A and panel B. It would take too much space to repeat those sequences so the patterm designer gives you the sts for the two panels and then in the actual knitting instructions, wherever it says panel A, go to those directions, wherever it says panel B, continue with the panel B instructions. So it'll look like this:
10st rib-panel B-kb1-A-kb1-B-kb1-A-kb1-B-10st rib.
If you add up only the sts without the panels, it adds up to 25 but that's not counting the sts required to do the 5 panels. If you add in the sts required for the panels it should add up to the cast on number.
