For me the model wearing this piece, I am 4’9 feet tall.

Measurement.

of one rectangle.

-16 inches wide

-56inches long

Each rectangular I measures around 16 inch wide x 56 inch long.

For the width: If you need to make it wider simply add more chain in even number +1  to foundation chain..like 60+1, 70+1 , 80+1  etc. I start this poncho with foundation chains of 60+1.

For the length:  add more row.

Leaving space for the open neck 10 inches.
