I started a garter stitch scarf as my first project. I knit at a snail’s pace so its taken me a while, nearly 4-5 months to get where I am at now, which. I now have about 50 inches done. I originally wanted to knit 60 inches, as I read that the ideal length should be about the height of the recipient, and I am knitting for myself and am a little over 5 feet tall.
Seeing how garter stitch is so stretchy, would 50 inches be good enough lengthwise? I really want to move on from this project already.
