I am considering making a Moebius scarf for a couple of male acquaintances this holiday season.  An example is here.  (I'm friends with their wife and live-in girlfriend, respectively, and will be making regular scarves for them.)  How long should the scarves be before connecting the ends together?

When making a straight scarf for a woman, I make them about 6' in length, which gives them the ability to be looped around the neck a couple of times.  For men, I make straight scarves 6.5' long.

The Moebius scarf seems like it should be shorter.  I envision this being looped around the neck twice.  I don't know the neck measurements of the guys.  Any idea how long it should be?

Of course tattoos hurt...they're applied with needles, not kitten whiskers and bunny tails.

Thanks.  I should have noted that the pattern includes a suggested length in my first message.  However, the pattern could be extended.  Assuming the wearer loops it around his head twice, the suggested length, 33", is twice a neck measurement of 16.5".  Is 33" enough for an average neck size (whatever that is)?  Should there be a little bit more length so it's not so tight?  Sorry I wasn't clear before.

If you're going to loop it twice, then yes, you need ease to get the second loop over your head, and for wearing comfort too.

If it's for a man, his neck may be bigger than 16.5" too... maybe even 18 or 19, possibly, if he's a big guy.

I would go with 40-44 inches, myself, if I were making it for a guy, maybe 36-40 for a woman, if they were going to wear it doubled.
