Notes The front and back of this poncho are worked back and forth from the top down, starting at the center neck. The shoulder seams are sewn, then stitches are picked up to work the cowl in the round. All edges are finished with I-cord.

When working the applied I-cord, check that the tension of the I-cord will allow the bias garter fabric to stretch, and adjust the needle size if necessary to match the tension between the edging and the fabric.
