This is good to hear....I just finished the first rectangle for mine, measuring 9"x16" and I can't for the life of me figure out how this is going to become a poncho. At least I know I'm on the right track.

Off to watch Amy's video now......

It's really cool how it comes together, huh? :D You can also adapt the same pattern for an adult sized one, by making larger rectangles. You can simply use newspaper to cut out the right size rectangles to tape together to size it for an adult, then knit your rectangles to match the size of the newspaper rectangles. You'd just need to figure out how many to cast on in order to get the necessary width (to match the paper).

Making it for adult and preschooler sizes
Ok, I need your help converting this to adult size. How do I do it? Do you think it would be best to try it up on my daughter and myself to see what will fit? or just make a swatch and go from there?

Thanks!

Hi, I'm new to this forum... joined bc I am learning to knit. I went to Hobby Lobby today and got some homespun yarn and some yarn bee yarn to make this with... I wondered, how old is your DD yarnmommy? My DD is 2.5. I'm wondering how this will work for her...

Need clarification
Hi to all, Love the poncho but need help. Can we start over? I understand that there are 2 rectangles made and sewed together to make the poncho.Is this correct? How many stitches would you use for a small
4 1/2 year old granddaughter?
Thank you for all your help!
