Scarf Length

I am making this scarf and am not sure how long to make it. Being somewhat dressy, I'm not sure if the normal long length would be appropriate. I'm not yet sure who I'm going to give it to.

Beautiful stitching. And I bet the yarn is so nice to the touch.

I'd love to see that "llive"

I'd love to see that "llive" the closeup shows the metallic - I'm betting it's just enough to add real interest - like light glinting off waves.

Thank-you for the comments.

Thank-you for the comments. The pattern is called Ocean Waves, here is a Link . The yarn I purchased on Ebay and consists of 3 separate strands, one in silk with a gold metalic thread, one in angora and one in mohair, it is incredibly soft and luxurious. It is not a commercial yarn but one the seller makes up, Not just yarns ebay store .

I really like that scarf!

I really like that scarf! Nice pattern. My favorite scarf is exactly as long as I am 6'. It doesn't quite reach my waist...probably because I have a lot of neck. I usually wrap the scarf around the back of my neck and cross it in the front before buttoning my overcoat. I don't really like it wrapped around my neck when I have a collar and tie on too.

It is a beautiful stitch. I would love to hear the details on that, and the yarn specs, too.

I always go with the golden rule for scarves that they should be about as long as the person is tall. When wrapped once around the neck that usually brings the ends to about the level of the waist, but I'm sure you must know that.

I can see yet another project on the agenda. :-)

I'm wondering if it would work up nicely in Ultra Alpaca. I have several colorways of that on hand.

You let go of it, it let go of you.

Gorgeous scarf. I usually make my scarves to be long enough to go down to my hips on both sides.

The texture is gorgeous.

The texture is gorgeous. Yarn specs, please. As for legnth, for a "formal" scarf I would think just about down to the waist when worn.
