I just wish it was a little longer...

Ok, so I finished and bound off my alpaca scarf... went on to other projects... Now I'm looking at it, and wishing it were about another foot longer. I've got the yarn, but I can't remember what size needles I used. Dang!
Is there an easier method than trial and error to figure it out?

Firstly, I would like to say the title of your blog entry is wonderful. Gee, how many of us have said that - especially about scarves. You could do exactly as if you were starting and make a swatch. Or you could pick up stitches from either end and knit a piece in a different stitch pattern and then it would not have to match the scarf exactly. Or you could add a long fringe. Or you could take another look at it and say, "I think it is perfect."

Remember -

It's not how long it is, it's how you wear it.


ps: could you take a guess at needle size and then just whip up some guage swatches and see what comes closest to the scarf?

Think less, enjoy it more.

........the length is not always critical. How wide is it?
