That gave me a triangle. I attached the brown boucle and did a few post stitch rows back and forth across the top, alternating back and front post stitches. Then I folded the piece in half across the top, right sides facing, and joined, leaving a space for the neck hole.
The brown boucle was yarn I found at a local pop-up charity shop last summer.
I've been wearing the new poncho for the past few days--I love it. It's lightweight and comfortable. I so enjoy the process of making things out of leftovers and scraps. It's funny to remember now, almost 4 years on, that when we moved to Ireland I had one sweater and a couple of shawls. I'd left the rest of my winter clothing behind because we did not have space or weight in our suitcases. I've made up for it since and have quite an assortment of winter gear. The hooks and needles have served me well! 😀
