A friend of mine recently overheard me telling a new knitter NOT to measure the needle when measuring her work's length. That's what I've always done. That makes this ribbing just under 1.75 inches long.
If you include the needle in the measurement, it would be just over 1.75 inches long.
Which way do you do it? It's a small difference in this case, but if you were using size 11 needles, it would not be a small difference!
