secret of the stole progress and a question

I am on row 313 of clue 4 and will finish out the clue and probably add some more because at the moment with so so dry blocking it only measures 36 inches in length. I know that if it was wet blocked I would be able to stretch that a little bit more. I'm only 5'4" and am wondering what length is suggested. This is my first stole so I don't have experience to go by. Any suggestions??????

I think I'll just keep knitting the repeat until the next clue comes out!!!!

Girl!!!! You keep on knitting that repeat and you'll have a stole fit for Olmpia in Harry Potter. I think you should just knit it as is. That is what I'm doing and I'm about 5'6". It is amazing how much bigger it will be once it is actually wet blocked. And it is beautiful by the way.

Your stole is looking fabulous! I would knit it as charted. I am 5'7" and mine is knitted as charted. It reaches the end of my fingertips and wraps around me quite nicely.

Great Job!

Very nice job!
I'm 4'10" so I shortened mine but I think like DK said you will be just fine....

Lots of people like their shawls to be as long as they are tall. I think stoles look good even a little longer. I am 6' tall, but I think that my stole will be plenty long enough because it measures 50" at the end of clue 4, without adding to DK's pattern.
