how long is a shawl???

I am knitting a lace shawl and can't make up my mind about 'how long' does the shawl have to be.
It is about 6 inches wide, and currently both halves are 28 inches long. How much more do I have to knit?
Any input is appreciated.


  1. Hi Renate, I would add another 4 inches to each end, so that you can wrap it around your neck at least once and your ends are still long enough to hand below your waist. Can't wait to see the finished object.

  2. I ended up making several more repeats and after slight blocking, the entire shawl is 6 1/2 inches wide and 78 inches long, enough to wrap it 2 times on really cold days
