What's a good length for scarf for an 11 yr. old boy?
Do you have any idea of how tall he is? If he's pretty tall, you could probably go with an adult size length. That probably won't help you a bit because scarf patterns run from the 50's all way up to the 70's, at least among my patterns.
Could you find someone about his height and try a scarf on that person? (I'm assuming this is a surprise gift.)
No surprise, but he told me yesterday that fingertip to fingertip is too long for him. I should have measured him! I can call him - thanks.
I think I remember hearing that finger tip to finger tip was equal to a person's height.
