This cowl is very like a poncho I want to knit for next winter. I would like it longer though so it covers my arms. Have you any ideas about how the pattern could be adapted?

Continue to work stockinette st with increases for 4 sts in every odd row until the poncho reaches to the bust line. Then continue to work stockinette without increases to desired length.
