When making a scarf with the Knifty Knitter the beginning row is always so loose and the final row is nice and tight. How do you eliminate that? If you pull the yard really tight in the beginning you can't get the yarn up and over.

Does anyone know how to make a scarf with the Knifty Knitter kit? If you do, please leave instructions.

Using one strand of yarn, start by wrapping over to the 12th peg. Turn on the 12th peg and wrap back to the first peg. Continue knitting back and forth until your scarf is the legnth you would like. Cut 12'' length for fringe. put 2 pieces of yarn in each stitch along the ends of the scarf. There are 22 fringes so you will need to cut 44 lengths of yarn. From; Knifty Knitter II (01/06/2006)
Continue on around the loom, wrapping every other peg to the last 2 pegs.
Wrap these and knit, using the pegs wrapped and missing the pegs that are in between.
Knit until your scarf is 36" long or the length you would like.
Using the Yarn needle, weave the Incredible Ribbon through the bars in the knitting. ( This will take some time to do.)
Weave 2 strands in each of the bar rows.
Weave like a basket. Leave about 24" of fringe on each end.
Tie 1 or 2 love-knots in each of the ribbon fringe strings, and you have a fun scarf that will flaunt your creative flair.

I am looking for instruction on the long loom for making a scarf.
This is my first time knitting.
Editor's Note: I believe the long loom is a Knifty Knitter.

Where can I find instructions to knit a single row on a long loom (4 to a set). I want to make a scarf and I don't want it double thickness. Also, I need instructions on how to cast off and finish the scarf.
