Anna, how many more inches would you suggest to make this beautiful ‘dickey’ into a shoulder warmer? I am a small woman of stature and of course purchase another skein of Lion Brand yarn. Thank you,

Hi Wendy. The dickey covers perfectly shoulders. I would not change anything. But if you want add at least 1 row in each section
