So I have never knit a shawl before, and I was wondering aproximatly how wide a shawl should be, both on average and in relation to the wearer. For general informaiton my shawl is triangle shaped and the recipiant is about 4'9'' and has a 5'1'' armspan.

Well, I've already started my own shawl, but this is a cool list for the future!

yes, but you could look through the patterns to see what a common size is.

I would say slightly longer than her armspan. Maybe 6-8" longer?

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

6-8 inches longer makes me glad my grandman is short.
