Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

i don,t understand the directions. it says to knit the first 3 rows and then knit the next row? (RS ) what does thatnmean

It means you are actually knitting 4 rows, but the first 3 rows are set up rows, so they are not repeated, only the following two rows are repeated.

How is the best way to join the 2 pieces? The one on the photo looks nice.

This easy poncho is a fun project especially for a beginning knitter. The pattern can be adjusted if you want a bigger poncho. A self striping yarn also adds an interesting visual element. The finished project makes a great gift it fits everyone and is the perfect weight for chilly spring and autumn days. I highly recommend you try this one!

This two piece Poncho pattern is so much fun to do. I have done several of them and everyone is adorable. I have made them for both adults and children. All that I have made were for gifts and everyone loved them. SO if you live where it is cold, these are a must. Enjoy.
