A very simple scarf pattern would be to cast on stitches for the approximate width of the style of scarf you like (fewer stitches for a skinny scarf, more for a wider scarf, it will also depend a bit on the thickness of the yarn you are using) and knit away in garter stitch until you reach the length you of scarf you desire! What's nice about garter stitch is that you can use more easily use a novelty type yarn to make a fancier scarf. Some novelty yarns like Fun Fur can be tricky to work with at first, so it might take a bit of practice. Some people find it easier to work with a novelty yarn when you "carry" it with another plain type of yarn, just knitting them together as if they were one strand of yarn.
