Create the following strips
See this post and video on how to extent strips when there’s too many loops on the loom, as well as how to manage loops before connecting them.
Strip 1: 6″ strip of 96 loops on each side
Strips 2: 6″ strip of 192 loops on each side
Strips 3: 6″ strip of 384 loops on each side
Step 1: (Neckline) Join yarn in first loop on one side of the strip of 96 loops, ch 1, sc in same loop, sc 2 loops together, *sc in next loop, sc 2 loops together, repeat * across – 64 sc
Step 2: (Basic Join) Join the unworked loops of the 96 loops with one side of the 192 loop strip using 1 loop from the 96 strip and 2 loops from the 192 strip
Finish off using a tail from beginning/end of strip
Step 3: (Basic Join) Join the unworked loops of the 192 loops with one side of the 384 loop strip using 1 loop from the 192 strip and 2 loops from the 384 strip
Finish off using a tail from beginning/end of strip
Step 4: (Finishing Edge) With the unworked loops of the 384 strip, sc 2 loops together around entire bottom edge
Finish off using a tail from beginning/end of strip. Weave in all ends. Sew or join with a sc each beginning strip with the end of the same strip to close the poncho.
Optional: Add fringe to bottom edge or leave raw. Pictures shows 3 – 20” fringe cut added between each two loops on bottom. Cut 576 total to do the same. Find a tutorial how to add fringe here.

You say that it takes three skeins of the Heartland. Does that include the fringe as well? Or should I order another skein to do the fringe?
The amount listed includes the fringe. Thanks for asking and hope you enjoy making your poncho!
