Knitting Pattern for Funky Stripes Scarf

Funky Stripes Scarf
by Stana D.S.
This pattern is for both, the adults and children's version. It's very simple, and easy to knit. The scarf is double sided, and really warm as a result.
Yarn: For the adult scarf on left I have used all sorts of leftover yarn, I tried to use yarn in similar thickness, but if the yarn was thinner, I used two strands of yarn.
For the children's scarf on right, I have used two balls of gray colored yarn, in medium weight. The pattern for the kid's version was inspired by Gru's scarf from the movie "Despicable Me".
Recommended Needle Size: For flat knitting use US#7/4.5mm, for knitting in the rounds 5 Double pointed needles US#7/4.5mm.
Notions: Yarn needle, Scissors.
INSTRUCTIONS:
There are two possibilities how to knit this scarf. Either it could be knitted flat, and seamed on the side. The flat knitted scarf is knitted in stockinette stitch, which is all odd rows are knitted and all even rows are purled.Or it could be knitted in the round, and therefore it's seamless. In that case the scarf is knitted only.
Adult version:
The size of this scarf is approximately:  8" (20cm) wide and 91" (231cm) long.
For flat knitting use the US#7/4.5mm needle and cast on 77sts.
1 row and all odd rows: Knit
2 row and all even rows: Purl
Keep repeating these two rows until desired length is reached. Cast off. Change the colors and yarns whenever you feel like, or when you run out of that particular yarn, or keep a nice mathematical pattern (example could be 5rows-10rows-5rows-10rows-5rows).
For knitting in the round, use the 5DPN US#7/4.5mm and cast on 75sts. Begin to knit in the round. Keep knitting in the round until desired length is reached. Cast off.
Children version:
The size of this scarf is approximately: 6" (15cm) wide and 61" (155cm) long.
For flat knitting use the US#7/4.5mm needle and cast on 52sts.
1 row and all odd rows: Knit
2 row and all even rows: Purl
Keep repeating these two rows until desired length is reached. Cast off. Change the colors and yarns whenever you feel like, or when you run out of that particular yarn, or keep a nice mathematical pattern (the pattern I used for the Gru inspired scarf is:  *16rows of light gray, 7rows of dark gray; repeat from *.
For knitting in the round, use the 5DPN US#7/4.5mm and cast on 50sts. Begin to knit in the round. Keep knitting in the round until desired length is reached. Cast off
Finishing: If the scarf was knitted flat, sew together the two edges along the entire length of scarf. Sew together the cast on stitches, and also sew together the cast off stitches. All the ends from color changes should be inside the scarf. If the scarf was knitted in the round, sew together the cast on stitches, and sew together the cast off stitches.
