"This is the 8th or 9th dead link I've hit this morning trying to look at the patterns from one newsletter, i can only presume that the person putting the newsletter together does not have time to check and verify the links."
"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."

P2tog = Purl 2 Stitches Together. Purl 2 sts together (decrease).
Yfrn = Yarn Forward Round Needle. Bring yarn forward and wrap around needle. It’s worked as a yarn over when worked between a knit stitch and a purl stitch (increase).

Hello, thanks for sharing. I feel really confused with the direction to Knit this poncho. Will appreciate if you can make it more detailed. After knitting all the first row, will I do the rest in garter stitch starting the edge with k2 and ending with k2? And I also don't understand the row with gradual decreasing to 36? Don't understand that at all. Thanks

If you read the pattern carefully all is explained. After knitting the first row, you also knit the second row, after that it actually states to keep the edge stitches in stocking stitch while using garter stitch on the rest of the row, the third to last row explains how to reduce it to the number of stitches to bind off. I don't like the pattern simply for the stockinette stitch edge stitches, they will curl making it difficult to sew together later. I have done it entirely in garter stitch and it worked well. I've also done it in the round in stockinette stitch without any seams.

I think the instructions are not in detail, meant for beginners, it is very hard and I usually understand things

This pattern is rated "easy" not beginner. I agree with you I don't think a beginner would be able to complete it without assistance, it requires some experience both in working from a pattern reading a pattern. If you are interested in making it, I could write it out for you in a long form, that I'm sure would be suitable for a beginner.

Since this is knit in two pieces, would it be alright to Double the cast-on stitches and knit it in the round?
Dec 21, 2016
I can see some problems knitting this in the round unless you're experienced at adjusting patterns. Since part of it is done in garter stitch, you'd have to adjust for that, since knitting in the round automatically makes a stockinette stitch. It might be more workable to knit it in one piece, working back and forth over a circular needle. That way you wouldn't have to make as many changes and you'd only have one seam to sew.
