From Big Girl Knits:

Poncho?  Please don’t.  You might as well wrap yourself in the blanket from your bed.  Instead, choose a ruana.  This elegantly draped, hooded beauty will skim your body, not overwhelm you with bulky knitted fabric.  And unlike most wraps, this one is cleverly constructed to stay on.  It’s the Big Girl alternative to a coat, perfect for cool days when a coat would be too warm.  Wear it wrapped around your shoulders or just draped.  Please do!
