Are you talking about string from a pack or from a reel. With pack, I put 1/4 on the short side, 3/4 on the long side.

With a reel, I know my arm span (finger to finger) and measure as tennytive suggests.

I would suggest over estimating the length, unless you get pretty good since I would rather throw away extra string then finish short and have to entirely restring (darn 18*20 string bed).
