I don't think anyone can tell you how to learn how to knit faster in that amount of time. All I can suggest is larger needles and knit a lot.

Are you a beginner?

You just need to keep knitting, if you have appointments knit in the waiting room, knit on the bus, knit on breaks at work, knit all evening.

There are methods of knitting faster but even these take time to learn to be come faster in so at this point it would slow you down to stop and try to learn a new technique.

Try to not knit too tightly either because it slows you down to keep digging your needles into tight stitches.

You could always learn to add a button hole and make a cowl that buttons around the neck instead of a long scarf so it is completed sooner.

With a looser knit you might not need buttonholes, some sizes of buttons would fit through the stitches.

I think maybe she thought she was replying to a different post or possibly she read yours wrong. I read so many I do that a lot.

No, newamy was suggesting buttonholes so you could make it a shorter scarf, more like a neckwarmer and button the ends together. There's a lot of patterns that do that. I was suggesting you might not need buttonholes if the gauge is loose enough, you could find buttons that would fit through the stitches.
