I don't understand the diagram. Please, could you include a better explanantion on how to finish and sew the rectangle? I agree with donna2kayak about the drawstring. Please, could you include better photos? It's very discouraging to see there are not clear instructions.

HI there! I'm including a photo of the way the edges should line up on the diagram. Unfortunately we don't have any additional photos of this pattern, so I would recommend reaching out to Yarnspirations directly. Thank you!

I like the color of this poncho. It would pair really well with blue jeans and has a simple, casual look. I also like that it is not too long and wide and fits snugly to the model.

Has anyone made this? I am curious about the drawstring and what kind of ribbon as I don't see a ribbon in the picture.
