Making the Scarf
Cast on 20 stitches, leaving 4" (10cm) tail. Work in garter stitch (knit every row) until scarf measures about 52" (132cm), or keep knitting until just enough yarn remains to bind off all stitches and secure yarn tail (about 4 times the scarf width plus 6 inches [15cm]).
Bind off all stitches loosely; try to match the same elasticity as the cast-on edge. Cut yarn, leaving 4" (10cm) tail. Thread tapestry needle and weave through bound-off stitches to secure. Weave in yarn tail at cast-on edge in same manner.
