The yarn used to make the scarf is a little pricey. I don't remember exactly what I paid but I think it was somewhere in the area of $28.00. Like I mentioned above, you just use the "knit" stitch. That's it! If you don't know how to do the "knit" stitch you can find directions on line or watch the video below. I also find that you can get someone to help in yarn specialty stores and they are usually more than happy to help.
I started by casting on 12 stitches but I've seen various directions, some using 15. You could really use as many stitches as you want to get to the desired width of the sccarf. One skein of yarn is needed is used so when determining how many stitches to start with, I wouldn't make it too wide though or your scarf would be shorter.

Have a great day!
