    Default *update with pics* How long to make a child's scarf?

    I made a scarf last yr and I am not kidding when I say it's almost 6 ft long. What was I thinking? lol

    Anyway, Zachary today asked me to make him a scarf and I am just planning on making a basic dc scarf with fringe. I'm not sure how wide or how long to make this.

    Any thoughts? (other than not 6 ft long?)

    Hannah and Ericks are 4 ft. seems long, but only 2 ft hangs down their fronts after being put around the backs of their necks, then each hangy down part gets flipped behind them, which shortens the length conciderably too.

    I must admit here, i got a bit over excited when knitting them...so yeah, they are a little more than a bit long. I could have probably shortened them by at least a foot. I have an attention span problem...

    Sara,

    That looks like a nice easy pattern and shouldn't take you too long to make.

    It is in UK wording so just remember that DC means single crochet to us and Treble means double crochet for us. I got caught on that a couple of times



    I never read the fine print!

    Let us know how it turns out.

    oops. lol I did it dc= double crochet etc.

    Anyway, it was super quick to make, but I don't like it. I'll be taking it all apart. I used a larger sized hook and the scarf is too wide imo. Live and learn.

    I made Zachary's wider and heavier weight yarn. I'm halfway done with mine. Here's the one I'm making for me.
