Thanks for your votes! The winning choice by readers is #1 for the front. The winning choice by the recipient is #2. So there you have it. In the final construction there will be more triangles added at the neckline, as well as a collar of some sort, so the body of the poncho will be a bit distant from the face, with more colors added closer to the face, as seen in this second picture of the first poncho. So even tho the panel #2 has very dark triangles in the picture, they will be offset by colorful triangles in the final assembly.
