Can anyone give me an approximate amount of yardage for a shawlette? I decided over the holiday to help my SIL's cancer group by making them shawls from my stash. However, I don't think I'll have enough of any one yarn for a "shawl" & will have to make shawlettes instead. I have cottons & wools (nothing bulky) to use. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I will be using plain garter stitch & large needle to "stretch" the yarn so to speak.

NeedleCraftUnivrsity.com has a chart for yardage for different yarn weights to make 3 sizes of triangle shawls (full-lenght, shawlette and neckerchief).
http://www.needlecraftuniversity.com/classlistk.htm

Scroll down to K154, the Triangle Lace Shawl, then click on "Tools & Supples" in the description. The yardage info will come up in a new window that you can print out.

According to that chart, a "shawlette" in Worsted weight on #10-10.5 needles will use 350-550 yards. They also list yardage for different weights and sizes.

happy knitting -- claire
