This scarf is knit as an open tube with ribbing on each end.
I chose Backwards Loop Cast On for this project because it stays tidy when combined with ribbing while having the right stretchiness. Interlock Bind Off is a close visual match to Backwards Loop. If you prefer, try a Tubular Cast On and Tubular Bind Off.
