Magic Scarf

I'm working on creating a magic scarf. I saw a photo the other day and had to make my own. Here is what I am doing incase you want to knit along.

I am using a very large size circular needle. I think it is a size 15 and the needle length is only about 20" max. I am using one strand of Red Heart Gemstone (greens and purples- Super saver size) and one strand of Bernat Eyelash White held together. I have 2 skeins of the eye lash to use on this.

I have cast on 36 stitches and am working in knit around in a circular piece. I am going to work until I have run out of both skeins of the eyelash yarn. When done I will post the bind off method I learned and will tell how to make it magic so it can gbe used as a scarf, a cowl hood, etc. So far I am almost finished with my first skein of eye lash yarn and ready to add on the other. My sample swatch I practiced on workied out great so I can't wait to finish and pull to create this magic scarf.
