I think it depends on how it’s to be used.
As an accessory to wear indoors (like jewellery), 4 to 6” in lightweight yarn.
As a means of keeping sub-zero air away from neck, face, and head, heavier yarn and 8 to 12” wide.

If you don’t want to set yourself up for disappointment, ask the intended wearer’s input.
I didn’t, and disappointment was what I got. When I asked first, the gift was far better received.

...for instance, a simple loosely knit, thick scarf for a homeless lady.

I think it depends on the yarn thickness, if a light weight fingering weight I make around 7-8inches then I can fold over but if it's thicker yarn it would be to bulky to fold over so only 6 inches

How wide would you make a scarf for an adult woman.
I know what length to make it but not sure about the width.

I'm not using a pattern.

Thank you for any help.
I like mine no wider that 5". I also make scarves for other women at 5" and they are appreciated and loved.
