Poncho is knit from the bottom-up, featuring a split hem with longer back. Each front and back hem is worked separately and then joined to work in the round after the split. Body is worked in one piece to the underarms, then each front/back is worked separately to the shoulders. The 3 needle bind-off is used to attach front and back shoulders together.
