Question regarding baby poncho

Hi all:
I have ‘just’ taught myself to knit, and am caring for a baby and toddler (18 mos and 3 yrs).
I would love to make the ponchos as a gift for my first projects, but how would i adjust the pattern to be able to use 5.5 mm needles?
Much thanks
Katy

What size needles does the pattern call for? Check your gauge with whatyouhave, you might not need to adjust!

Will do! And will let you all know how it turns out! This seems like a friendly forum!

This is the best forum and website. I’ve learned almost everything I need to know about knitting here. Just my 2 cents. ~Brooke
