The first skinny scarf turned out so well, I wanted one for myself. Thus:
350 stitches cast on longways, knit 2 rows each colour ending with the same colour you started with. This turned out to be almost double my height. And I am 5'3". I lurves it.
It is knit out of Steve sport yarn. From Rain's Obsessive Stitchery
I cannot emphasize enough how soft this yarn is.
