Hey there! How many yards are in your white yarn? If you don't know, here's a quick, easy pattern to make a triangular scarf thing:
1. Cast on 3 stitches.
2. Knit 1, yarn over (wrap the yarn around your needle), knit to the end.
3. Repeat row 2 until you get near the end of your yarn. Bind off.

Oh, by the way, don't sell yourself short ability-wise - this is the best place ever to learn to knit something "hard." (To paraphrase Melanie Falick, there are only two stitches in knitting, and purling is backwards of knitting, so there's really just one.) Ask loads and loads of questions - this is a learning forum!
