NOTES:

* Poncho is made in 2 pieces, Back and Front.
* Color is changed to create stripes.
* A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of sts. Work back and forth in rows on circular needle as if working on straight needles.
* When you see '- 12 sts' in the instructions, this lets you know how many sts you will have at the end of that specific row.
