I'm having a real problem with this neck shaping. On right side, after you're down to 60 sts--1st row of neck shaping indicates P52 and turn. What happens to the other 8 sts? When doing the left side there are a lot of short rows. What happens to the leftover stitches on the left neck side.

I think, if I were to make this poncho, I would make the center front seam shorter to give one more room to put on and take off, especially for a child. I'm not sure if that would affect the way the hood fits on, since I haven't made it. It looks pretty close around the neck. It looks warm, though and stylish
