Hi! I bought a very cheap yarn (Mollet..i think that's the name) 'cause it's my first scarf so if it turns out good i'll buy a better yarn :D .

And, again, hehe, I need some help with the circular needles .
I casted-on 90 stitches (that's what the site told us to do), but it didnīt go all the way around the needles, so when it was time to knit, the working yarn was "too far away" from the point of the needle...did i do something wrong?

Can you help me, please?

What size needle are you using?

Either your needle is too long, or you caston VERY tightly...

Oh! I donīt know if the sizes are the same as there (i'm from a different country) but here the size of the needles i'm using is 4.5 (23" or 24" i think).

The pattern calls for a 12-16" needle, so the cable on yours is too long. You need a different needle. Sorry.

Yep...from point to point. And, Id go for the 16" needle...you'll get more use out of it in the long run.
