OOps – I forgot to detail the length – the scarf knit in Cloud is approximately 31 inches long (this is using a 9mm needle) and the Scarf knit in the chunky tweed is 34 inches long approximately.What I hve noticed is the longer scarf seems to suit men a little better and the shorter scarf is favoured by women.

  1. I’m in the process of knitting this – very pretty! Can you please tell me about how long the finished scarf should be? It seems as if mine must be pretty close to the right length, but there is quite a bit of yarn left. Thank you for a lovely and do-able pattern!

      Thanks for your message – I will add the lengths to the post now – but for your information.

      • Hello Hazel,

        Thank you so much! I will have time to knit several of these before our Minnesota winter loosens its grip.

        Warm regards,

        Beth
