Pattern Notes

Two rectangles sewn together create this poncho. Start with 2×2 ribbing edge. Work the Slip Stitch pattern, working with just one color on each row, with rib edges to prevent the curling of the sides. End with 2×2 ribbing edge.

If you prefer a longer or shorter rectangle, add or subtract rows symmetrically in increments of 4 rows of the Slip Stitch pattern repeat as many times as you wish.
