  1. Hi! Scarlett, thanks for this beautiful pattern, I began the poncho and with the video everything is going well for now! I have a small problem about the neck, I don't have the 60 pegs half gauge, I only have the 55pegs half gauge, is it possible for me to transfer on the 55pegs? thanks a lot for your help! and for sharing your talent with us! Sue

    1. You need to decrease down to 60 pegs then internal decrease on both halves, when you add the loops to the 55 peg loom you will over lap by 2 and 1 side will likely overlap by 3.
