This poncho was knit up as a tribute to my husband's love for a particular character of the wild west. Unfortunately for him, I found the poncho quite comfy when I finished. Until I knit another, we have to share.

Knit from the bottom up, The front and back are knit before seaming the shoulders together. Tassels are added at the end. There are instructions on how to stabilize the neck thereby reducing the amount of stretch for those who wish to do so.
