"Looks like a nice project, however the patterns from this website that are featured are frequently missing so much essential information, that some of them are useless. The website for the yarn has to be translated and the translation to english is not great, so proves to be more than a little frustrating."
"There is no "book" you must click on the link to see the pattern on the page it links to. After you get to the page, you need to scroll down about 1/3 of the page to find the written pattern there. Hope this helps, happy knitting."
"Sorry, I don't know of a video for that stitch pattern. I did make this project about 10 or so years ago and I remember that it did not really look like the picture until it was completed, while it was on the needles it looked like it wasn't lining up. Is it possible that is what is happening with you?"

I think the ombre' yarn makes this extra special.

This is gorgeous - BUT - since it's been 17 months since Lisa left a question, it would be seriously nice to see it answered before I start this. ARE the sleeves done "in the round" or ARE they seamed????? How hard it that?
Jan 23, 2018
It looks to me as though the poncho is slipped over your head and the "sleeves" just drape over your arms, no cuffs as such. I looked at the diagram and at the picture, and that's the way it looks to me. If you had cuffs, it looks as though your arm movements would be pretty restricted.

Thank you! I was put off by the line in the pattern "cuff to cuff" and hadn't read it thoroughly. My mistake. Thank you - very helpful!

I do love the look of this poncho but I'm having an issue with the pattern. I've read through it 3 times now and it seems like it is knit in the round because the pictures here and on red heart .com make the sleeves looked like they are joined, but no where in the instructions does it indicate to join anything not even with a seam.
May 10, 2018
The very last line of the pattern, admittedly in the section regarding the collar, says to seam the cuffs for 3.5.

This looks super comfortable and warm. The ombr yarn adds interest and the collar and buttons add style and interest. It is an easy knit too. Pink is not my favorite color to wear, but I think any color would look nice in this design.

I love the ombre effect of the yarn used for this poncho. The colors are so cheery and the design looks very comfortable.

This is a simple yet really pretty poncho pattern. I really like the ribbing on the cuffs and bottom edges - it keeps them from curling up. The collar and buttons are really stylish touches. I'm sure this would be lovely in almost any shade of ombre yarn, or even a self striping yarn.
