"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

I like the simplicity of this poncho pattern. I would be tempted to make it longer, though, so maybe cast on more stitches but keep the number of rows the same for the size I wanted. I would probably also want to close up the boat neck a little, make sure it didn't feel like it was falling off my shoulders.

The pattern doesn't seem as complicated as the finished product looks. Again, I would make it longer so I would have to make some adjustments, but I don't think it would be too hard to do. With the super bulky yarn, it should work up pretty fast and be warm and snuggly!
