Rated 2 out of 5 by Knitaholic from Where is the diagram? This knits up in a hurry and makes a very nice lap blanket. But I kind of wanted a poncho. The instructions read, "Following diagram, sew cast on edge to side edge of Poncho." But there is no diagram. Maybe I'm supposed to just look at the photo of the finished product, but I'm having trouble figuring out how to finish my project.
