PATTERN NOTES
This Poncho is knit sideways in one piece. Front and Back are separated while the neck opening is worked, and are then rejoined later. Hood is knit separately and sewn to the Neck opening.

Color changes are by using the stranded method of knitting. Hold
both colors throughout rows where color changes occur. When working plain (non-stranded rows) on Chart A, Chart B, Center Chart, and Hood Chart, either switch to US Size 7 needle or knit tightly on the US Size 8 needle to account for the difference in gauge between stockinette and stranded knitting.
