adding length to a toddler poncho
I'm making a poncho for a toddler (my first real project). I have had to start over so many times, that now I'm afraid she will outgrow it before I finish it. I really like the looks of the finished product. My question is, can I add a few knitted rounds after round 4 in the pattern to add a couple of inches in length? I was thinking I would add about 8 knitted rounds between round 4 & 5 in the pattern. Will that be ok or will it mess everything up?

Here's the pattern: howstuffworks.com/easy-baby-knitting-patterns6.htm

Any suggestions?

Thank you so much!

I think as long as you continue the increases according to the pattern you can make it as long as you want.
