The finished size of this shawl depends heavily upon the yarn used as its garter stitch construction is very forgiving (and giving). This shawl fits a standard 14” doll with the sample size measuring 6” wide at the ribbing and 8” wide at the bust, to 10.5” from waist to the tip of the cross-over strap.
