You really don't need a pattern. Just cast on stitches and start knitting away. When it gets long enough for you, bind it off. To decide how many stitches to cast on, do a test swatch to see what your guage is with the needles you're using.'

Good luck and, most importantly, have fun!!!

Me? I would love to say my dh, but it's actual Jim Caveizel (I know I butchered his last name). He does look a bit like my dh, though.

Gauge really doesn't matter for a scarf you're just knitting. Cast on for as wide as you want it to be, and start knitting. If you like the fabric that you're creating (not too loose and not too tight) you're on your way.

If you can tell us what yarn you plan to use, we can probably give you a general idea of how many stitches to cast on, if you need help with that.

Then you just knit and knit until you decide it's long enough.

In my case, that was about an inch. But my knitting ADD is getting much better.

I hope I didn't cause any confusion when I recommended a gauge swatch. I only did it so that you could get an idea of how many sts you need to make an inch. For example, if you have 7 sts per inch and you want a 10 inch wide scarf, you would know to cast on 70.

handsome
Knitaddict. It did cross my mind that it was him. He should have WON the Oscar for playing JESUS in that wonderful movie. His performance was outstanding. :D I forgot I was watching an actor during most of his suffering scenes. But may times I did think "wow" he sure is handsome during the movie.
