The pattern is written NOT charted.

The poncho is knitted flat on two needles and then sewn up, there is no shaping, so this should be within the abilities of most knitters from intermediate to experienced alike. The twisted stitches may look complex, but if you follow the pattern exactly as it is written this again should be within the abilities of most knitters.
