I do NOT want a 14" wide scarf... obviously am using fingering weight yarn Is the pattern in 6 or 12 stitches (I need to adjust because 80 stitches seems ridiculous!

The pattern repeat is 6 stitches.

The picture is a scarf but the directions are for a shawl! I will try it with 4 yarn but only 40 stitches, rather than 80 and see how that goes! We can compare notes later!

It is a scarf, but the yarn weight referenced on this page is incorrect. The yarn weight is #1 not a #4. With the correct yarn and needles this is a scarf, and a lovely one at that.

Hello omimolly 7081276, the pattern has been updated to include the correct yarn weight. Sorry for the inconvenience! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

Something is wrong here, when you click to see the pattern, this website has it listed for a #4 worsted weight yarn, when you get to the pattern its for Red Heart Heart & sole yarn which is a superfine !-its sock yarn and the gauge is for sock yarn. I do notice they said gauge is not important and the pattern is simply using a larger needle than recommended, so I am going to try it with both and see what I like better.
