Thanks and Oops... sorry about that bad link; it's fixed now.
The yarn isn't anything special: Lion Brand MicroSpun which is "An ultra soft microfiber sports yarn" and the color is "Cherry Red" and can be purchased at Jo-Ann's, Michaels, Hancock Fabrics... you should not pay more than $3.49. My finished scarf weighs 4.5oz so I used roughly 1¾ skeins and when held up by one end it is just as tall as me so it's abou 5'5" long.
:knitting::X:The first scarf I made took approximately 20 minutes to knit all 8 rows of one repeat. For the second scarf (this one), I concentrated on learning/understanding the stitches more and I was able to reduce the time it took to knit 1 repeat to more like 13-15 minutes since I wasn't constantly looking at the pattern and moving my pattern marker from one line to the next. There are 48 repeats in this scarf so not including the cast on, the 8 beginning/ending garter stitch rows and the bind off knitting the actual repeats that form the leaf pattern probably took about 12 hours. Not exactly a fast scarf, but worth it!
