This Poncho is made of 2 identical rectangles. Each rectangle is knit
separately. One short end of each rectangle is sewn to a portion of the long end of the other rectangle.

With the exception of the Right Twist Cable, all traveling stitches are worked with right and left twisted stitches, with no cable needle required. If you are comfortable cabling without a cable needle, the Right Twist Cable can also be worked without a cable needle.

Stitch patterns are both written and charted.
