As I envision this, you could make two large granny squares and then join along two sides leaving the center point where these two sides meet open so you would have kind of a flap collar. In the alternative, you could make two large granny squares and in the last few rounds, work them as back and forth rows so you form a square with one corner cut off. Sew up and then you have your poncho.

A third alternative would be to make two large granny "rectangles" and then join them where the short side of the rectangle is joined to the long side of the other. It would be easier to show you with a drawing -- if you can find Sally Melville's The Knit Stitch Book, she has a garter stitch knitted poncho based upon the design of two rectangles.
