This is a very easy scarf to knit. I knitted one similar to this when I was in Grade 5. The one I made then it was so long it touched the ground on both ends when I looped it around my neck. I always did get a little carried away.
The pattern can be adjusted to suit any yarn and can be knitted any length, you want it to be.
To Knit Scarf as shown using a chunky yarn:

Knit until the scarf is 56 inches long. Finish the scarf when you get to the end of one of the sets of squares.
To Make a Fringe, cut 2 pieces of cardboard almost double the width that you want the fringe to be. Some of the yarn is used in making the knot and some is used when the yarn shrinks up after it is no longer stretched on the cardboard. It is also good to have a little extra so that some can be trimmed to make the fringe even.
Wrap your yarn around the cardboard pieces and then cut on one side between the pieces of cardboard.
Use a Crochet Hook to draw the yarn through each stitch on the end of your scarf.
Draw the ends of the Fringe through the loop and gently pull tight to finish. Repeat until the Fringe is finished.
