From Designer and Tech Editor:
The poncho is knit in one piece and flat, and then seamed together along the garter stitch edge until the neck opening is reached. Neck opening and the outer (unseamed) hem are defined by an i-cord edge for a clean finish. The final length of the poncho can be modified by omitting equal amount of pattern repeats (Row 1 - 12 of Main Body - Front) in both sections, Main Body - Front and Main Body - Back. The fit of the neck opening can also be tested as you go by folding it in half, stretching it a bit and trying on.
