how con i make this scarf taller??


Turns:
Make turns in your work to give the scarf flounces.
Knit short rows like this:
1st row (RS): Knit from 1st to 6th MT (= marking thread), turn.
The markers are no 1-6 seen from the RS. From WS they are no 6-1.
2nd row: Knit to 5th MT,
3rd row: Turn and knit back to the 6th MT.
4th row: Knit to 4th MT
5th row: turn and knit back to the 6th MT.
6th row: Knit as 2nd row.
7th row: Knit as 3rd row.
8th row: Knit as 4th row.
9th row: Knit as 5th row.
10th row: Knit from 6th to 1st MT.
11th row: turn and knit back to 6th MT.
12th to 19th row: Knit as 2nd to 9th row.
20th row: Knit from 6th to 1st MT, turn.
21st row: Knit to 2nd MT.
22nd row: turn and knit back to 1st MT.
23rd row: Knit to 3rd MT.
24th row: turn and knit back to 1st MT.
25th row: Knit as 21st row.
26th row: Knit as 22nd row.
27th row: Knit as 23rd row.
28th row: Knit as 24th row.
29th row: Knit from 1st to 6th MT.
30th row: turn and knit back to 1st MT.
31st to 38th row: Knit as 21st to 28th row.
Repeat from 1st row.

Knitting Tip: After every turn, slip the first st, tighten thread and knit back, this is to prevent holes at every turn.

SCARF
The whole scarf is knitted in garter stitch. This means you knit every row until finished measurement.
Cast on 42sts on needle size 5mm with 1 thread of each quality. Put 6 marking threads in your work like this:
1st marking thread (MT) in the beginning of the needle.
2nd MT after 7 sts.
3rd MT after 15 sts.
4th MT after 27 sts.
5th MT after 35 sts.
6th MT at the end of the needle.
Knit with turns – read above – and also read knitting tip. Continue until work measures approx 150 cm, make sure to end after a 38th row with turns. Cast off loosely.

i want the scarf cover my back as a shawl and more wideer what i have to do specially with the short rows??
and how many sts should i start with 42 also or what??

The pattern gives the size as:
Length: approx 150 cm [59’’]
Width: approx 25 cm [9 3/4’’]
It looks as though you can continue the pattern repeat of rows 1-38 until you get the width that you would like. You might want to cast on slightly more sts in order to keep the proportions on the scarf. You would then adjust the position of your marker threads. The exact number of sts between markers won't be critical although it will start to affect the size of the flounces.

It's really a very good looking scarf. I think that once you start it, you'll be able to judge how wide you want it to be.

If you double the number of sts and keep 6 markers, the flounces will be larger. You may have to try this to see if you like the look.
If you double the number of sts and increase the number of markers, you'll have to adapt the pattern repeat for the additional markers. Experimenting with the pattern may be the best way to figure out how to work with more markers.
