Yarn Needed: 988 yds of size 5 yarn Hook: 8mm Gauge: 5SC x 6 Rows = 2 Inches Size: After wearing the shawl measures 67 inches by 16.5 inches. It should be 60 inches wide before being stretched from wear. Measure your shawl after row 1 to check sizing.
How to Adjust the Size The goal is to have the shawl be the same length as your wingspan (the measurement from fingertips to fingertips). If you need to add or take away length from the shawl, just add or subtract from the starting chain in multiples of 2.
Then when you work your pattern, the part of the pattern that will be adjusted is the number of repeats. For every 2 chains you add or subtract from the shawl, You will adjust the repeat total by 1.
