This is my first post ever, so be nice. I am looking for a knit pattern for a poncho. I need it to be no longer than my elbows because one of the things that annoys me about ponchos is that you cant use your arms with them on. Is it as easy as knitting two rectangles together? I just need measurements for the rectangles then. Be the way, I am very short, if that helps.

I have a pattern from an old Brunswick booklet from 1968.  The finished poncho looks VERY chic.  All it is, is knitting in stockinette two rectangles measuring 14" x 28".  The rectangles get sewn together short end to long end on both corners, which makes a pointy-front and backed poncho, but it is actually shown on the model to be worn with the points at the elbows and the straight edge across the front.  The pattern also calls for sewing fabric to the wrong side, so the thing is reversible.  It's very easy.

i want to try this, but i'm having trouble wrapping my head around your description of how they're put together. could you maybe draw a little diagram for the thinking-impaired?  Embarrassed

thanks!

i think Knitty do a few patterns of ponchos.
http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall03/PATTponcho.html -this one kind of implies its one triangle rather than 2
-you could always make it less wide and less long (the rectangle) to stop it interfering with your arms
