Assembly easy Lilly poncho.

Lay 2 pieces in flatted then use one end of back panel attach to front end of front panel by sewing with your favorite method. pic below.

After attached front of the poncho already, now we are going to fold each end to creat the back of poncho and attach them by sewing. see pic below.

Now  when you try it on and it slip off your shoulder if the open neck is too wide for you this problem had happen to me. if the poncho does not slip off your shoulder when you guy try it on then you did not need to do it.

we will  sew a bit further up about 3-4 inch up from the back panel. see pic below.

Now enjoy your new poncho.

Can you help? I did use a 4 weight worsted yarn and larger hook but both pieces were still 18x36 and it was large on me. Down to almost my knees and I am 5’2”. How can I make it shorter? I will use a 3 weight yarn next time. Thank you.

Hi, love the poncho. You mention 1,200 yds of yarn. Is this correct? Pricing out cotton yarn for this amount is sooo expensive. Is there a brand you use and how many skeins?

Hi Jane, I am having a hard time with gauge. When I use a 3mm hook I get way more than 3 dc’s within an inch. I can use a larger hook size but I am afraid it won’t fit me after. I am only 5 ft tall and size small normally on tops.
