The thing about super-scarves? They really don't take a lot of time to make. Probably less than some of my normal sized scarves. For the super-scarves you need really chunky yarn and a big hook. Here's my two so far.

Want to make your own? Here's a few tips.
How long to make our super scarf? Stand up, reach your arm up high. Your stretched out height - that long.
How wide to make your super scarf? Because its so incredibly long, it doesn't have to be that wide, I would say less than or really close to a foot. Unless you want to go with the Lenny Kravitz crazy-super-scarf, which I think looks so fantastically fun!

What stitch? Both of these were done in crochet. The black and white in single crochet; the green in half-doubles, doubles, and singles. But really - whatever you think best shows of your yarn. It doesn't have to be complicated. As for knit - I only know how to knit, so I would have to go with that.
What color? You could go conservative with a match-your-coat color or go wild! It'll be a cold cold day when you wear it, so maybe a color that folks can find you in a blizzard. I'm thinking a bright bright pink or red for my next one.
