Not-Quite-A-Blanket Scarf

I have to be honest, I'm not really into the blanket scarf trend that much. In my opinion I may as well just wear a blanket. In addition, I'm pretty short (5'2"), so a large scarf would just swallow me right up. I got this scarf which is pretty large (larger than I thought it would be), so I showed you how to wear it in that poncho, blanket scarf style. In actuality I'll most likely wear it like you see in the second set of photos - wrapped around my neck for warmth. What do you guys think about blanket scarves?
