Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Would like to add garter stitch border to prevent edges curling. How would this affect the overall pattern and drape?

Do you cast on all the stitches on the double pointed needles? I think you could use the straight needles to knit the cable but I am not much wrried about working on the DPNs.

No, the dp's are optional if you don't use a cable needles. the scarf is knit on straight needles the cable or dp's are just for the cables. hope this helps someone.

I would like to make this scarf but not with double pointed needles. Can I do this with regular needles? And what size? Thank you!

It is knit on size 4 straight needles. You only need the double points for working the cable stitches; you can also use a cable needle instead of the double points to make the cables.
