Kids' Scarf
I would like to knit a scarf for a child. 5 years old, 4 feet tall. How long should the scarf be?

If you plan on winding it around the neck the usual length is the height. You might make it a bit shorter though, that could be a little too long for a child. Somewhere between 36-40".

I've knit around 45 to 50 inches for a 5 year old. It will last (assuming it doesn't get left a school, on the bus, at the ice rink etc.) for a few years that way.
