You said you didn't want seams in front, though, right? Most ponchos knit that way are worn with the points down in front and back, putting the seams directly in front and back. However, it doesn't have to be that way.
Ach, I should have been more clear -- what I really despise is those ponchos that have some gaudy tie, like a ribbon, on the front. (Although that would be more of a capelet, wouldn't it? I'm dumb.) I like the pointed front but the tied-at-the-side is my preferred style.
The poncho you knit is adorable! The Brunswick one looks good, too. Thanks a lot for posting those instructions.
