Children under the age of 9 need shorter scarves because they themselves are shorter. Many people swear by the rule that scarves should be as long as the person is tall, but a general guideline for younger children is 36 inches long.
For scarves on children, they range from desired width (3â€³-6â€³; or child's handspan or double for a cowl. Good rule is 4â€³) to the child's height for length. If you are able to measure the person, I've found the best minimum scarf length should be from the chin to the floor when standing.
I wanted this especially for Children scarf sizes.. Riley's Nightgown & Sleep Shirt Infant, Toddler, Kids & Youth/Tween Sizes Newborn to 18 PATTERN .
How long and wide should a scarf be? I googled it and some sources are saying that 36 inches is a good general scarf length for small children .
