I have some beautiful chenille yarn that I would like to use to make my Mother a small wrap/shawl. She's 81 and sits around the house a lot because she has Alzheimer's and isn't able to do much. Anyway, I a lot of yarn, so I need to know the minimum width and length I can make this wrap. She's a small woman so it shouldn't take much to wrap around her; however, the smallest size I've seen on the knitting sites is 16" x 60". I just don't have quite that much yarn--I have about enough to make a 13" x 60". PLEASE give me your ideas so I can get this done by Christmas. Am I just going to have to forget it?
