I am making a scarf from these two patterns:

http://digknittydesigns.blogspot.com/2007/07/free-knitted-dishcloth-pattern-kitty.html

http://cache.lionbrand.com/cgi-bin/faq-search.cgi?store=/stores/eyarn&faqKey=272

My plans are to have a Hello Kitty on each end and Sugar Cubes in between. However, when I get to the end, I want to knit the Hello Kitty from top down, instead of from bottom up (which is how the pattern is laid out). Do I just need to start from stitch 55 and work backwards? My biggest fear is that I will end up with Hello Kitty on the wrong side and I lack the skills to be able to back up and fix it.

Also! How long should a scarf for a 2-3 year old be?

i promise i'll think about reversing it once i have something to eat, but! when you get to the point where you want to start the reversed pattern, put a lifeline! then if you get it wrong you can come back without trouble.

Put a picture of Hello Kitty into KnitPro.  It will draw a chart over the picture, which you can then mark up for knits & purls.  Flipping the shaping as you need will be easier with a graph, too. Smiley 

I think a child will want to wear a scarf like that for many winters to come, so err on the side of too long. Smiley  You can always double or otherwise creatively wrap it.

ETA:  Thought of another way: make 2 Hello Kitties w/ pattern as directed, but put one on a stitch holder/waste yarn.  On the other, make the middle as you plan.  when you're ready, graft/kitchener stitch/weave the pieces together (see Knittinghelp.com video in finishing section).

The first scarf pattern I made suggested that an average scarf is as long as the recipient is tall. Some people like theirs longer though.

What's a lifeline?
