I have found a shawl pattern that I would like to make as a Christmas gift for a friend…the finished measurements on the shawl are 32" x 62". That sounds great for me at 5’11", but no so good for the recipient who is 4’ 7". Any thoughts or suggestions on what a good finished size would be ?
Is it triangular, circular…? The pattern name would be helpful too, then we can make suggestions on how to make it smaller if necessary.
It is triangular - it is a random pattern I found in my stash so it is nothing specific/no name. I know how to resize it to make it smaller, just wondering if anyone on here had any thoughts on what a good final size would be for a woman under 5ft tall.
Rule of thumb is wingspan…which normally equals height. So about 55 inches across would be good. .
