I made my own pattern for these two scarves. These were gifts to a couple of young women who are friends with each other. They are both very similar, but a little different. I'm afraid I don't know what type of wool I used as I got it on sale when Zellers was going out of business. I really enjoyed working with the multi-coloured wool as it made it more fun to knit with.
One scarf has wider columns than the other, so you can choose whichever you like best. These patterns are great for beginners like myself, because you always start each row with knitting (nothing fancy to remember or count).
Wider Columned Scarf
6mm knitting needles
Cast on 35 stitches.
Each row: Knit 7, Purl 7, Knit 7, Purl 7, Knit 7
Continue this until you get your scarf to your desired length.
