I don't know how to knit but this Stylish Stripes Poncho is great pattern for a crochet project of exactly the same design. I love stripes so I don't mind starting from scratch with this project. Awesome stripes!

I knitted this a while back for my mom's birthday in a medium size and it was a little too tight and short. Has anyone else had this problem, or should I have just gone with a large?
