Damn it!

So I spent all day making a crocheted edge for my supposedly 60″ long Red Scarf, ended it and found out it’s nowhere near 60″, like I thought originally!  I’m very very tempted to just be done and finish it at the 51″ it currently is (and I frogged back maybe a foot, too!)  What do you think?  I will say it looks a lot better after adding a crocheted border. It’s still differing widths, but it looks more like a kidney shaped swimming pool than I don’t know what it looked like yesterday.

    You could always crochet on more on either end.

    I’m with Batty – crochet an edging on each end that’s about 4-5 inches, then you’ll have the length you hoped for. And a nice decorative touch, too.

    I’d follow the other suggestions. Adding balance to the scarf will be good.

    Bind off and be done with it.
