I made the plunge and bought a couple of those neat knitting looms.
I used the smallest wooden loom available at Hobby Lobby (Knitting Kreations), I think it is a 2.5" loom.
I used two skeins of Bernat Frenzy (Black Blast) which is mainly black with a mixture of blue, green, yellow, purple, etc thrown in for good measure. I also added ribbon and beads to the ends to clean it up a bit.

It ended up being about 10' long and wraps around my neck 4 times and then hangs down to my waist.

Not the most spectacular of scarves but I am very happy with it.
The coolest part was that everything was on sale. I also got the rectangular loom and am going to tackle it next.

Sorry the pics aren't so great but I am one of the worlds worst photogs.

The scarf:


The ends:


Any ideas on how to make them better?

Hey! A fellow Knifty Knitter! Yay! I have found that doing the actual Knit/Purl stitch on those makes the scarves a LOT better (Not sure if that's what you mean by "making them better")

That's a good one to try and learn new stitches. You could also try googling "Loom" "stitches" "knitting" "purling" or whatever else you can think of.

BTW, I love the fringe on this scarf Cheesy

I love the fringe I think it is great!!! I can't really help you with questions about the loom though, I was given one and it frustrated me so bad I threw it across the room.

if you purl on the 1-2 pegs on the end, it helps with curling (if you have issues with that)

I personally like your scarf. I think it looks great!
