Strange name for a shawl, you might think? But I had two reasons for this.
First and foremost, because of how it begins. The whole top edge of the shawl is created right at the start as a long icord, and its length determines the size of the finished shawl.
Secondly, my first sample was knit from two part-skeins of the same brand of yarn which I had left over from other projects... so I was hoping throughout the project that I would have enough to complete it. And - thankfully, I did!
So I guess the answer to my question is: long enough to reach both ends!
