thank you missbethea!  I normally go for natural colors but this dark purple-y color was really appealing for this.

@trekky - I literally wrote out what each symbol of the chart meant and after a few rows, you get the hang of the pattern.  Smiley

thanks ladies!  Cheesy  The pattern is really nice - and it really wasn't that hard to make!  The worst part was when you are first working with the chart, but once you figure out the pattern, it isn't so bad.

I recently completed a cabled poncho that is on the cover of the most recent Rowan Magazine.  I used Cascade yarn and sized down the needles a bit - it took about a month to knit.  I love this so much!

Hi Nesse:  It took about a month - would have taken less but one of the patterns was so redundant and I couldn't motivate to work on it, so it took longer than it should.

aw thanks!
so to answer your questions - the back basically looks like the front, except the patterns are flipped.  It is pretty much two loops that are connected.
Think of it more like a sleeveless sweater or a cape than a shawl - it is meant to be worn over clothes, but doesn't have sleeves.
I don't really know that you can wear it any other way - I suppose you can put it around your neck but it would have so much extra fabric hanging.
