How long should a scarf be?
Traditionally, a scarf goes tip to tip. To do this, try holding your arms out so that the scarf reaches from your left finger across to your right one. On average, this scarf will be about 60″ long. Most short scarves are 55″ long, medium scarves are roughly 70″ extended, and long scarves are about 82″ in length.
How do you fasten off knitting?
Bind Off ( Knit ) With the left knitting needle, lift the first stitch over the second stitch and off the right knitting needle. Knit the next stitch and repeat. When one stitch remains on the right knitting needle, cut the yarn and draw the tail through the last stitch to fasten off.
Why are my knitting edges uneven?
If you’re getting a column of loose stitches along the edge of your knitting, it’s probably a sign that the tension is uneven between your end stitches and the center ones. When you’re knitting the edge stitches, tug the working yarn a little tighter than you normally would to help keep the stitch a little smaller.
