Sorry Corinna I've just gotten your message. Photo 4 shows all the seams sewn together but the last one. If you fold the arrangement in half so it's equal on both sides (3 squares on each in a vee shape) you will be able to see where the last seam is and sew that together. Because this pattern is the same on both sides it's up to you to choose which seam is the left shoulder. I hope that has helped. Let me know if you have anymore questions.


I am stuck. I have the squares sewn together, as in #4. I dont understand where I would find the left shoulder seam. I am so bummed as I wanted to complete this for easter and I only have a short time...can anyone help? Also when do you join the 6th square to the first one?

I think extra rounds would be fine. I have a picture of a large poncho I made for my niece in this post

I added more rounds to my squares and also more rows around the neck to give it more length. Hope that helps:)


Super cute! I would like to make a poncho like this for my 3 year old daughter. I have about 16 oz of super soft, fuzzy, bulky weight yarn. I'm thinking an N hook would work, but do you think I'd need extra squares or just extra rounds to make it big enough? I've never made a poncho before. =)

Thank you for the nice comment Donna. Happy to hear you completed a poncho!


I found your pattern through Pinterest and just completed my first poncho. It came out so cute. Thank you for taking the time to write it all out!
