And here is a tutorial for finishing the ends with pompoms:

Woodland Critters scarf is the capstone project for the Woodland Critters collection. It combines most of the animal designs with flowers, trees, and other woodsy motifs into a single tubular-knit scarf. This adorable sampler project is a great way to practice stranded knitting, duplicate stitch, and finishing techniques all in one garment. The pattern includes two versions of each chart: a complete chart, often with four colors per round, and a second chart with just two colors per round for those who choose to use the duplicate stitch method to add extra colors after knitting is complete. The pattern offers two finishing options: fringe tassels and pompoms.

This pattern includes two sizes: Child and Adult, with a length of 40 (60)” or 100 (152) cm not including tassels or pompoms.

The gauge is 28 sts and 29 rows over 4” (10cm) in stranded Stockinette Stitch, blocked.

This is an intermediate level pattern. Knitters should have experience with stranded knitting technique, long carries, and following color charts. Since the motifs in this pattern call for up to four colors in a row, some knitters may opt to use the duplicate stitch technique.

For this design I used Knit Picks Palette(100% Peruvian Highland Wool; 231 yards/50g). To make either the adult or child scarf, you will need 1 ball each of Semolina (#24250), Masala (#24248), Teal (#24000), White (#23728), Marble Heather (#24244), Black (#23729), Bluebell (#24578), Doe (#24240), Hazelnut (#24563), Mulberry (#24571), and Edamame (#24257).

You will also need a set of 16”/40cm (for child size) or 24”/60cm (for adult size) circular needles in size US 4 (3.5 mm) or size to obtain gauge.

This pattern includes full color charts, two-color charts for optional duplicate stitch, written instructions, and notes on making tassels and pompoms.
