Knitting ends together
So I am currently working on my very first piece! I am making a neck scarf (which is just a scarf that is sewn together into a big "oval" type shape instead of having two "tails" ) I realized that I don't know how to knit the two ends together though!
Can anyone help w/ this?

If it's knit flat in stockinette you'd use mattress stitch. There's a video in the advanced techniques section here in KH. More help at this link.

If you knit it in garter stitch (all knit on both sides) then there is help at the link above for that as well.

If you've got a cast on edge and a bound off edge, mattress stitch should work well - check the video page, there's a section for finishes and matress sttich is there.
