"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."

The Roll Neck Poncho is the perfect layering piece for any outfit when there's a bit of a chill in the air. The fun fringe lining the bottom of the design adds a bit of whimsy and the striped detail throughout the body keeps the piece visually interesting. Plus, the superfine merino yarn is incredibly soft and will feel wonderful against your skin. The roll neck ensures you'll stay extra warm outdoors. In other words, there's not much this poncho doesn't include. Check out the pattern for yourself and prepare to be the envy of all your friends once you finish this piece and wear it for the first time.

I love the simplicity of this but the pattern makes it look really chic. I do not personally like turtlenecks, however. I do believe I could make the two panels and just not add the collar at the end. Does anyone else who has looked through the pattern see a reason that wouldn't work? Thanks for your assistance

Love this pattern. It is simple but it has a lovely detail to it which makes it different. The instructions are easy to follow. You just have to make two panels and add the roll neck and you have a beautiful poncho. It is a nice addition for those early spring days or late summer. A basic color yarn shows the lovely detail. Thank you.
