So before you go outdoors to brave the elements, layer up with this cozy scarf that's stylish and warm.

Cables arent too difficult to knit if you have the right tools of the trade. I suggest that you practice on some scrap yarn before you actually try to tackle a project like this if you are unfamiliar with cable or have had very little experience. Once you get the hang then this will be a very nice scarf.

Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed, in Row 19 there are only 42 stitches, and in Row 25 there are only 44 stitches. Can someone clear this up for me because I would love to make this scarf.

I believe you've miscounted because both rows are 44 sts per row.

This pattern is not advanced, it is an intermediate level project!

What makes this scarf "Advanced"? The use of cables?

Looking at the pattern I think it's the multiple cables of varying size AND the fact that it's cabled on both sides. That does indeed qualify as advanced.
