I am knitting a basket weave scarf and my hubby wanted both ends to reach his waist. Simple stitches, with a 4 st repeat of 4 knits and 4 purls, which reverses every 6 rows. I was just remembering some posts I've read in the past about knitted scarves that grow and grow and become too long, and I began to worry about mine. Do all knitted scarves grow and stretch longer, or just certain stitches?
If they do, then I probably shouldn't make the ends waist length if they are destined to end up down to his legs(!), but how much less? I mean, more like 2" on both sides up from the waist or more like a foot on both sides up from the waist (!) ? Or is this not a problem at all and only certain stitches/patterns stretch? It is boob length on both sides hanging down right now, about 40" in total length.
