Day 276 and Duckies
Let's say you have a very small amount of yarn and want it to go a long way. There are lots of ways to make your yardage go a long way and this is just one of them.
There's no rule that says a scarf has to be the same width along the entire length. A good cheat for making a scarf look more substantial is to make it slender around the neck and making the hanging parts much wider. Here, I started with 15 stitches at the ends and did a mitered corner until only 5 stitches remained for the longer body of the scarf. Because I wanted both ends to match, I made two beginnings and seamed the center.
