Notes on Modifications:
If you want to make your scarf wider or narrower, or perhaps you are using a different weight of yarn (with the appropriate size needles of course) and you need to really adjust your cast-on this is all you need to know – your borders need to be the same on either side (I used 3 stitches) and your center section needs to be an odd number.
So in the case of this scarf I have 3 stitches for each border (6 sts) and 13 in the center (13 + 6 = 19).
Now you can use this stitch for any sort of project, with any sort of yarn that you like, from a fingering weight scarf to a Jumbo blanket!
