Definitely a circular needle Probably 32" at least
But then that seems almost too few stitches. Knit sideways with 200-300 stitches, it would seem like it would be a fairly short scarf.
I'm currently knitting a lap robe with 167 sts on the needles. With a worsted weight yarn, it's a little over three feet wide. I would think fo a decent-length 'sideways scarf' you'd be looking at at least 400-500 sts.
But I'm just guessing...I've no experience knitting a scarf lengthwise. I think I've seen a pattern or two, but have never paid any attention to them.
