Another ene's scarf question

do i have to cast on with two strands? It just seems so thick! and plus, I am using a thicker yarn than what is called for in the pattern…

any ideas?

Why not do a swatch to see how it would look with just the one strand.

There is nothing that says you [B]must[/B] do exactly as the pattern instructs and, particularly as this is a scarf, I don’t see what harm there would be in using just the one strand. :wink:

I don’t think you can cast on with one strand and then knit with two–your cast on would be too small.

Go with one strand and make it wider if you want. Boogs is right–it’s a scarf–change it up any way you like.:shrug:
