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

Since this is knit in two pieces, would it be alright to Double the cast-on stitches and knit it in the round?

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.
