3. I'm doing mine in Caron Simply Soft, because I had some lime green and black. Use whatever yarn you will like the finished product in. It is all about the final product, and if you hate the feel of RH, you won't want to wear the scarf!
This is the best idea yet.  SS would make this a killer scarf.  The SS brights green is perfect.  Doing mine as a stocking is working great in RH but I'd hate it as a scarf.  I might go down as far as a 3 or 4 dpn tho.  I like to do my FI tight.

I prefer circs for carrying my stuff around, so what cord length would be best for doing this?
  I'm not sure what length but I'm sure it would be great on 2 circs.

I'm thinking about turning this into a pillow for my Dad... I don't have the patience for a scarf. Plus he lives in Thailand and has absolutely no need cold-weather accessories. I think I might still do it as a tube to make the FI easier, just a much bigger tube. Plus then there's less seaming Smiley

I was looking around and found some booklet thinggie tucked in with my circs..
Acording to AERO this should be knit on smaller than 16".. seen as there are 4,5 stitches per inch and there are 66 stitches in total that would mean the best length is 14.67" circs.
I think 16" would work fine, maybe give you a bit more space

OR you could just work with one long circ.. there's a how to floating around somewhere..

I can't wait to make this myself but I can't find the right color green anywhere  Angry

Two short circular needles should work well. Learned the trick from the second knitter Debbie Macomber book Cheesy My book addiction 4 teh win!!!11

I tried to do this with DPNs, but I think I need to make my first DPN project something with one colour. I'm using 16" circs, and it's going fine so far.

Amethyst, that looks great.

I'm thinking I might wait til Feb when the new Naturally bamboo yarn hits my LYS, it has the perfect colours and if I don't use a cooler fibre I will melt in the thing.  Unless I find something in my Spotlight shopping spree on Wednesday.
