The scarf (kinda looks like one of those magnetic ribbons people stick to their cars)
Me ridiculously modeling

I made this tube scarf using prettyful yarn bee soft delight yarn in dark blue and size 11 circular needles. I casted on 40 stitches and did ribbing for like 3 inches, then decreased to 30 stitches and did 3 more inches of ribbing, then decreased down to 20 stitches and worked until almost the end, increased to 30, worked 3 inches, increased to 40, worked 3 more inches, and finally bound off.

But I had an issue with the stretchyness. I also made something else (a pillow or something?) with size 11 needles and fun fur and it was like 10 times more flexible than my scarf. I'm wondering if it's the yarn or something else? Does anybody know?

Really cute scarf, very chic! The lack of stretchiness could be due to the yarn, as different yarns have different elasticities, but it could also be because you knit it in the round. Stuff that's knit in the round doesn't really have anywhere to stretch to, if you catch my drift. It looks like it fits you perfectly, though. Nice job!

Yeah, you're probably right. Oh well. At least it stretches over my head (but I end up with about a million little fuzzies on my hand after I try)!
