I have had a problem with the bottom of both of the halves of the poncho curling up. Am blocking it now, hopefully that will help. Any other suggestions?

I'm confused when I get to this line Rep last 4 rows 10 times more. 43 (51-63-75) sts. First line says it's WS but I'm at the RS?

Hi Kristyn! I checked with our resident knitting expert, and it looks like you should be repeating the last four rows, not the last four lines of the pattern. If you just repeat the following, you should end up on the RS of the pattern: Next row: (RS). K2. K2tog. Knit to last 4 sts. Sl1. K1. psso. K2. Beg with a purl row, work 3 rows in stocking st. I hope that helps! -Editors of FaveCrafts
