This pattern is wonderfully adaptable. Want a wider scarf? Knit more increase rows! Want a longer scarf? Buy an extra skein and knit it longer! Keep in mind that this scarf is knit in garter stitch. It will stretch in length and narrow in width the longer you make it. To measure the length, fold the scarf in half and let it hang.
