Help! I made the Bernat Soft Boucle poncho to knit on the back of your boucle yarn. I cannot figure out how to put it together. When I put it together as instructed it does not work. Please give me specific instructions with pictures, preferably, as to how to put it together. The pieces are the same size, but I cannot figure out how to get them together to form the poncho. Thank you for your help. Faye Gravett

Quite easy instructions and beautiful outcome. Quick and easily understood, I will surely make this shaw in this glorious ruby color!

I like your knitted patterns but I don't knit. I prefer your crochet patterns cuz that I love to do. Thanks
