Does Wool Yarn Stretch During Use?
I knit my son a scarf that he loves, but it has gone from being able to wrap around his neck twice to being able to wrap around four or five times! It seems to be getting longer.

Is this normal? Is there something that I should have done/should be doing/can do to fix it? It looks kind of thin and stretched out now, not the cute little bumpy thing I thought I was making.

Will washing bring it back into shape?

It was made with Cascade 220 Superwash wool, on size 9 (5.5mm) needles, if that makes a difference.
