I have been working really hard on a crochet scarf this week. It is not a hard project to work . I have lovely yarn to use and it grows quite quickly. It has been a nice project to sit and do whilst watching Wimbledon.
I said that it grows quickly and it does when it comes to completing the pattern repeat. As for the overall length however I would have to disagree.
When I started off I thought 2 skeins would be enough (this is about 100 yards of yarn ). As the end of the second skein came my thoughts were along the lines of:
hmmm not quite long enough, maybe I will do the third.
I have now finished the third skein and am still not sure that it is long enough! (Yes even with the required blocking.) I was a little disappointed – you know that feeling you get when you think that you have finished something? You have worked really hard to get it finished only to find that you haven’t?
So what is the correct length for a scarf?
As you would expect. There is no correct answer as personal preference comes into play and different styles also have a bearing on it.
The only advice that I could find is:
The general rule is the scarf should be about the same length as the person.
Go-on admit it, how many of you will be going to lie down next to one of your scarves in the near future? (I have already had a go myself if that helps?)
The things that you never think about despite using them all the time! Have you ever had a situation like this?
With it being Sunday I am now going to head over to Handmade Harbour to catch up with all the lovely crafty blogs over there. Do come and join in. 🙂
