I am knitting a helix scarf using 20 stitch cast on and short rows. It looks great but there are no suggestions for length. Given the curly nature of the scarf I don't want it to be too short as it might end up bouncing in a person's face. Any help would be appreciated.

I have just finished that scarf......mine is 30 inches (roughly 76cms.) but it is all a matter of choice,so easy to do I could have gone on knitting!

Throw a soft tape measure around your neck, Sherry and judge it that way if you're not wrapping it, etc.

45" goes down to my waist line, so probably less in your case.......?.......

Good luck, sweetie!

Goog luck, sweetie

This was a free pattern I found online:

Spiral Scarf Pattern

100g worsted weight yarn (suggested yarn was Noro Kureyon) plus needles suggested for that yarn.
You may use whatever yarn you choose as long as you use the needles suggested for that weight.

cast on 15 stitches
knit 2, turn knit 2 back
knit 4, turn knit 4 back
knit 6, turn knit 6 back
knit all the way across the row (15 stitches)

repeat the above 4 rows. The scarf will spiral after the first few inches. Use up all your yarn. Bind off and weave in ends.

P. S. I used Plymouth Encore for mine and they turned out really nice plus they are machine washable.
