That may be a little small, try 30, that should make a scarf about 6" wide.

Oh you said 23... 35 is a good number too, that should be about 7" wide.

casting on
Hello everyone:

as you know I am very new to kniting and got my started kit I think a week or 2 ago and said i was have trouble with casting on using the long tail, well i think i got just did it twice but when i went to take the yarn off to do it again, i had trouble getting the yarn off and by the way i just got it tonight, this afternoon i had went out to get a light color and bigger needle a 10.5 I had been using a size 8 Boyle, so i got the cast on after using the 10.5 and lighter color yarn.

Yes, lighter colored yarn and a larger needle can help. Good for you.

Yeah, I'd say if you pull the yarn to tighten your cast-on stitch, only do that to make one stitch similar to the other or to get rid of a huge gap. If it's pretty close to the needle to begin with, leave it alone! She probably should have mentioned something about tension in the video...
