I know you're in a hurry, but you need to be patient and polite. We are doing the best we can. Very few people here use machines, if any, and they may not be the same one.

If you knit a long tube you still wear it around your neck like a scarf. You don't put it over your head like a collar. These links are hand knit tubes, but you can see what I mean, they are wrapped the same as a scarf knit flat.

Because they are a knit tube they fold nicely and they are completely reversible. Think of a hat...you can lay it flat, but it's still a tube. You can flip it over and it looks the same. They really make a lovely scarf. If you don't want it as wide as a hat try making the tube smaller. Not sure how you do that, but since you know how to make a hat you can probably figure it out. Like cast on less stitches or start with fewer. You may have to experiment a little.
