Scarf length for children?

Posted by babka (My Page) on

I'm crocheting scarves as a surprise for a couple little girls ages 7 and 10. Any idea how long they should be? When I make them for adults they are about 65" long, enough to wrap and tie a couple different ways. Any recommendations on length?

I make scarves for my 8 yr old and I keep them around 48".

Thank you, Rebecca, for that quick answer. I'll go for 48". I'm making a crocodile stitch that looks like dragon scales/or petals depending on your point of view.

The 10 year old will want to wind that scarf as the big girls do....I think 48 inches is way too short....

: ) my general rule of thumb for long scarves is as tall as the person I'm making them for, maybe an extra 6" if it's a 'necklace' style scarf.

the exception to this is one of my art teachers, who's about 4'10", but likes scarves that fall to her knees : D

Lindac-
Thank you so much for your comments. I wanted this to be surprise even to their Mom, but when you reminded me that little girls really want to be like big girls it all clicked in...of course they do! So I asked their Mom who says that the 7 year old has a 60" scarf that she loves.
