You may want to use a smaller needle, since you will be using a lighter-weight yarn. If you are making the style of poncho that has 2 rectangles sewn together, it should be pretty easy. First of all, do a swatch with the yarn you plan to use, so that you'll know how many stitches you need to get the width you want. Then you just knit until it is the right length. After that, do a second one. If you are making a different style of poncho, it will be more complicated. I guess, at this point, you'll have to write back and tell what particular style of poncho it is.
