I'm a real beginner. What does it mean when it says to cast on 32 + 2 stitches? Does that mean cast on 34 stitches? If not, what does it mean.

Cari: I'm not much more than a beginner myself, but if you want your work to have a finished look (and you will...) it's best to have a stitch on either end that adds a nice, smooth, look. Here's what I know: Selvedge stitches -
The 1st and last stitch of the pattern are selvedge stitches. To make the edges of your work even and smooth 2 more stitches (selvedge stitches) are added. You should always slip the first stitch as if to knit and purl the last stitch. The selvedge stitches are not counted in the pattern unless otherwise specified.
So, in this pattern will cast on a total of 34 stitches...32 for the width of the scarf, then one on each end, for the edges. Hope this helps. Happy Knitting!
