A Really, Really, Really Long Scarf


Here is my Debbie Bliss Cable and Bobble Scarf. I've knitted this in Patons Classic Wool Merino. The color is sage.
After completion, the scarf measures out to around 92 inches. I went ahead and knitted mine to 100.5 inches for the fun of it.
There is a 24 row repeat of bobbles and cables which was really fun. I finished this in 11 days. The average on Ravelry seems to be between 10 to 14 days of completion.
I have the scarf wrapped across my neck once to show how long it is. I'm about 5 feet 9 inches or so and the scarf goes just past my knees.
I am contemplating knitting another one in a darker color.

Wow, that is beautiful! The perfect length to wrap around your neck a couple of times & be really warm & squishy.

Love the bobbles and cables. It only took you 11 days.....I would still be on the 3rd repeat on day 23. Lovely.

I saw it! Now, that's just a little too cute and it makes me feel better about the long scarf i made. It does remind me of a preacher's stole. We are thinking about making one for the pastor's of our church and your photo is inspirational - i may get around to it one day!
