Holy cow!!! That's long! Wait...is it for a cow? That might be about right...:think:

:teehee:

The answer also depends on what weight yarn and needles you're using. Obviously lace weight would be a lot more than bulky. Here's an estimator chart for different weights for a 4.5' scarf. You do the math. ;)
