Halacha - Tallis
Submitted by Garet Benson  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: Is the shiur for a tallis gadol the same as for a tallis katan, one amah by one amah. I've tried to look it up, but can't seem to find any explicit mention. I'm thinking of selling talleisim online, and there's a lot of demand out there for these scarf-like talleisim that are only 16-24 inches wide.
Answer: While the shiur is the same, the Shulchan Aruch in OC 10:11 writes that a scarf is exempt from tzitzis. Therefore if one said a beracha on such a talis it would be a beracha l'vatala. Additionally the Rema 10:12 writes that one must have 2 tzitzis in the front and 2 in the back, and the scarf taleisim have all 4 in front.
