Putting poncho together

I am making a poncho. It is two squares.Each square is 60cm. It says take 2 squares and sew up two sides 40cm leaving 20cm for neck. It has a v at bottom, Picture shows leaving either side of ^ at top for neck. But in finished picture the neck is a boatneck. Doesn’t make sense.

Can you please tell us the pattern name and provide a link if possible? Too many patterns to remember them all.

It certainly is pretty but it looks like a triangle on the top pattern stitch square. It seems like an edge created by decreasing along that upper side…
Have you knit the front and back already?

Could the model have decided it works better sideways? V’s shoulder to shoulder?

No I am not up to the back top and I have not started the front yet? It
looks like from picture of sides that the top ^ might have been tucked in.
If you look at pattern the way it is falling out it seems like neckline is
from right hand corner at straight edge.

I think I figured it out from finished pictures. I am going to sew where
seam is on finished picture and the V is at the bottom only. The diagram is
not right with pattern.

According to the diagram, there should be a point at the neck for the front and the back. When I look closely at the picture, it looks like that top corner could just be folded down inside the top of the poncho for the front and back!!

If the finished “fabric” is thin enough, after u put it on over your head you could tuck those 2 points down inside.

Just my idea!!

Here’s what I figured out from looking at picture one seam starts at end of
neck down sleeve. Other side is part of shoulder to sleeve.
See diagram

Take a look at this black and white photo. If u look at the part behind her neck it looks like the top part “could be” folded down inside.

At least that’s what it looks like to me.

You are right. I emailed pattern company,

That’s a good idea!! Hopefully, they will be able to help you!!

I was intrigued enough to have written to the company and this is the helpful diagram that they sent back. The front and back squares are indeed folded over and tucked in to form the boat neckline.
Thank you @knitcindy!
