Yardage Question

I just got a skien in a swap it is from Socks that Rock and I just love the colors.. but I only have 1 skien- 325 yards- would this be enough yarn to do a nice sized chevron scarf?
I am working on one right now- out of 2 skiens of spaced dyed cashmere- 87% cashmere 13% nylon it is turning out lovely..
thanks for the help.. will post pics soon.

I think that'll only get you halfway there. I don't have the pattern on hand, but I'm pretty sure it calls for 4 skeins of Koigu. As these are each about 175yards, you'd need about 700 yards total.

the last scarf I did I used the leftovers from my Charlotte's web shawl.. I got a neck warmer out of it. I am thinking I should get bigger than that with the STR yarn as I believe I have more yardage of the STR yarn than I did of the Koigu yarn left over from the CHarlotte's web.. It won't be as long as the picture but I don't plan on wrapping it around my head either :-) At least I would get a soft neck warmer.. thanks for helping me think this out.
