I am new to the forum but have been reading for quite a while. I have been so inspired by all your work and ideas. I am knitting a booga and have a question about the I cord. How long did you make it? I want to be able to put the bag over my shouder but not hang too low. Any idea how much the I cord shrinks?
Thanks for all your help and inspiration.

The pattern suggests 5 to 6 feet. It would be better to err on the side of longer - if it hangs too low, you can always cut off the excess after knotting it on. I made mine about as tall as me (5'8") and it hangs kind of low on my shoulder still.

Hope that helps, and be sure to share pics when you're done!

Thanks. Good idea to make it longer and then cut it to the desired length.
