i knitted it on size 13 round needles with 2 strands at once. it took about 30 mins per stripe (with 15 stripes). im really pleased with it even though it took so long.

i used tlc ultra soft or something like that. i got it at joanns fabrics. the only problem is that all the stores in my area aren't caring it anymore, but they still have it online.

the colors are light yellow and claret
 it was cheap (in the stores it was only 1.99$) and surprisingly soft.

Very cute, and it looks warm.  Nice job!  Striped scarves are awesome.

I love it!  I want to do one of those for myself for this winter.  Thanks for the yarn tip, I totally hear you on trying to get non-scratchy yarn for decent prices.  Why does it have to be so expensive?

That is really cute! It looks very well done and professional. I really want to make one now. One question: how exactly do you knit with two strands at once? (I'm a beginning knitter and it takes all of my skill to make rows and rows for a rectangle that will be a scarf.) Thanks. Love it!

Okay, another question, is that a special kind of yarn? It looks very fine and thin and soft! (like in the tassels - which I love!!) I don't like gold much, so I'm tempted to make a gray and green one... ^__^

i know what your saying. i was so happy when i found the kind i used, but i don't know what I'm going to do for my next one. what makes the other yarn so much more expensive is that i used 6 skiens of yarn for that one scarf!

i was confused by knitting with two strands held together at first too, but its not that hard once you get the hang of it. all you have to do is simply hold them together and knit them as one. just make sure when you go to knit the next stitch that you put the needle through both pieces of yarn. the hardest part is when you cast on and not getting the piece confused. i might be able to take pictures while i knit if you need more help.

the kind i used was tlc, which i got from joanns. there is a link above to the specific kind. it is amazingly soft for being acrylic.
