Scarf Length

Just wondering how long are most people making their scarves? I understand that it's probably a personal preference, but seeing as how a lot of these are gifts... do you go by skeins instead?

I'm really flying through mine - I love this pattern!

Also, do you wash the finished product before giving it?

Mine were gifts for guys, so I asked my guy roomie to try it on and tell me when to stop. Usually 200 grams worth.

But for me, I used 300 grams, as I like longer scarves.

Good luck!

I used 2 skeins almost exactly of Wool Ease for mine. I think they're 3 oz skeins, so about 6 oz for mine.

one skein of my yarn (debbie bliss cashmerino aran) was about 14" long...i bought 4 but i think i may stop at the end of the 3rd which should be about 42" because this is for my dad. if it was for me though i would use up all 4 balls for a longer scarf. :)
