do i *have* to cast on with two strands? It just seems so thick! and plus, I am using a thicker yarn than what is called for in the pattern...

any ideas?

Why not do a swatch to see how it would look with just the one strand.

There is nothing that says you must do exactly as the pattern instructs and, particularly as this is a scarf, I don't see what harm there would be in using just the one strand. ;)

I don't think you can cast on with one strand and then knit with two--your cast on would be too small.

Go with one strand and make it wider if you want. Boogs is right--it's a scarf--change it up any way you like.:shrug:
