I probably never make two alike,it depends on the person scarf is for too.Are they tall,short heavier,do they want to tie it ,fold in half and put the ends through the loop?? Lots of help hu!!!

I've made several eyelash yarn scarves and they measure 58 inches (I think I used 2 skeins per scarf, not sure though).
I made one of those ruffle scarves (don't know what it's called since I threw away the wrappers) and it is 49 inches long. I believe I used the entire skein of what looks like netting where you insert your needle through one of the holes in the netting. It is a dark navy/brown with a metallic thread running through it (very dressy and quite pretty).
My Korean friend knit me a 53-inch scarf using 4-ply knitting worsted yarn.

I usually crochet my scarves to a length of 40 to 54 inches, depending on the type of the yarn and the size of the hook. If it's a fashion type of scarf, I might make it shorter, but if it's for warmth, I like to make them long enough that you can wrap them a couple of times.

I normally make adult scarves about 60", sometimes a few inches longer for taller people (I am 5'1" so I judge by my height). Childrens scarves are shorter. Sometimes the pattern is a certain length only because of the pattern stitch.

Isn't the scraf pattern printed inside the label on that yarn? I suggest you just follow the pattern. Those people research popular length and colors when making the patterns and yarn colors.

Well IM Joyce why would I read the label??
Yes it does say but I just wondered what other folks do.. I also crochet them not knit. I don't knit.
I made one that is about 45" for a teen. In pinks she loved it.

I probably make scarf in 50 to 60 inches long or it depends on the person who is going to wear it.
