I am trying to make a fleece poncho for my niece for Christmas. I found these directions online. They look easy enough, but I am having trouble understanding this part :

"This will be the dimension of the rectangle which lies along the length of the fleece. For the crosswise dimension, add about 8". Make sure the long edge goes on the crosswise grain "

:

Can someone explain?

Maybe my brain is fried from too much Christmas crafting
:LOL. Seriously.

Take the hand-to-hand measurement. This is the short side of the rectangle.
Now add 8" to that measurement. This is the long side of the rectangle.

No problem - I had to read through the directions a couple times to figure out what they were getting at.

But those poncho's are gorgeous !
