Yes, it's very short and wide, but that's what I need. When I'm out in the cold, I pull up the scarf over my face and still have a warm neck while minimizing the extra bulk down my back. This is a great pattern for this; the yarn is really warm, but the knitting is open so you can breathe through it. I'm not using my ski mask when I bike to work as much and that's a joy; hate the ski mask...Oh, and it looks great with my bright green coat! I'm actually color-coordinated from the waist up.
