Looovely scarf!

What exactly do you mean by an "elongated garter stitch"?

elongated garter stitch=
when you wrap the yarn around your right needle to make the knit stitch, wrap it more than once (depends on how long you want the stitch to be). on the following row, only knit 1 of the loops made by the multiple wrapping. 
let me know if this is the most confusing thing that you've ever heard...i may be able to find pics of the technique somewhere Smiley

It's called a "yarn over", kadreath.

I thought that's what it looked like.
So my question was how many times did you wrap the yarn over the needle?

I'm guessing at your pattern from looking at the picture.

It looks like you made a yarn over twice on each stitch in one row, knit the next row ordinarily (with, like you said, "only knit 1 of the loops made by the multiple wrapping"). Then made a yarn over three times for each stitch on the next row, followed by a row of ordinary knitting.

How close am I?

actually, this isn't a yarn over, though it is very similar to one. (calling it a yarn over could be confusing)  you are wrapping the yarn around the needle extra times as you make the knit stitch, then on the next row, you only knit 1 of the loops and drop the rest.

fairly close on how i made the scarf, except between 2 and 3 wrap elongated stitches, i worked either 2 or 3 rows of regular garter stitch.
