I have a friend whose birthday is today, so I made her one of these scarves!  It's not as long, but I really like it.  I made it from some kind of bumpy yarn, ribbon, regular yarn, suede yarn, and chenille yarn.  I love all the different textures together.  I used blue, grey, white, and black.

Last night I brought The Brothers Gimm home on DVD.  When the Rapunzel scene came on I was hit by the overwhelming desire to start my Rapunzel scarf.  I pulled out all of my odds and ends and started to roll them into balls.

So here is my question:  How long is your yarn when you start out?  I really just need an estimation - and idea to go on.  Thanks!

Oh, and I wanted to like that movie so much.

haha, I was going to say... hooooooorrrrible movie. my strands were 6 ft long to begin and that's too short. I'd say maybe 8? depends on how long you like, I guess.. but definitly more than 6 if you want to wrap it around your neck

Okay thanks, I'll do eight feet.  Horrible, yes horrible.  There was so much potential - even the costumes disappointed me.

This scarf is sure to repair my devastation.  Thanks again.

At least eight feet.  I would even go 10.  The blue scarf above was made from lengths of 78 inches -- wait a sec -- just over 6 feet! -- and it's too short.  She can hang  it around her neck and knot it, but there's not enough for her to wrap it twice around her neck.

The red one I made was made from lengths 120 inches -- wait a sec -- 10  feet long! -- and unwrapped it hangs to my knees (I'm 5' 5").  It's just the right length for me -- long unwrapped and it can wrap around my neck once and still be longish.

I definately recommend 10 feet.

If anyone plans to make one of these and they're in the UK, these peeps make excellent variety bags of sparkly/textured and just plain unusual yarns, all packaged up into colours and they're just the right length! I added one of their orange bags  to some plain orange wools and it looks great (even though I do say so myself! Wink) Will try for a piccy.

www.texereyarns.co.uk then click on variety bags, then when you click on 'choose colour' you are spoilt for choice! And, no, I don't work for them Wink

I just ordered a green and a grey bag and I can't wait for it to arrive so I can get started. I'm gonna be so Slytherin Tongue
