so i am the scarf queen haha. constantly making scarves.. they are so trendy yes? but i want to make the one in these pictures:
the stripes look one, maybe two lines long with size 5 or 6 needles.. but the color joins are so close together.. weaving the ends in might be a bad idea... :( it also looks like its probably stockinette stitching but its so loose and has a slight curl to it..
any help would be awesome :D

It's really hard to tell much from those pictures but I'd guess that the yarn is carried from one stripe to another throughout the whole scarf.
Doesn't look like a hand knit from the picture either. Looks like a machine knitted tube, but that's from what I can see.

that is more than possible.. but i want to replicate it as much as possible haha.
how would i carry the yarn without it showing up in between stripes? :(

Go to the General Knitting forum, and look for a thread from a few days ago called "Weaving in ends-- ugh", by lifeisgood. That has the info you're looking for.

Do 2 rows in one color, switch to the other color and do 2 rows. Twist the yarns loosely around each other, you don't need to cut them for just 2 rows.

hahaha yes the pictures do tell that story haha.. in the first picture he is screaming the word "SICK!" for about 10 seconds heavy metal style screaming.. and then he actually does switch to a more melodious verse.. "well enough alone" by chevelle.. check it out ;p lol
but yeah i dont want to have to cut for every color switch.. and i could just bring up the next color from where i left it and cut and weave later but still.. i mean, i know how to weave and hide the ends and all but that would be a looooot of weaving.. i will go check out that thread too.. thanks :D

It could be knit in the round or it could be carried up the side. Either way works. I did a scarf the way Sue mentioned and it came out great.
Needle size will depend on the yarn you use.
