Here are a couple more I made. They are in garter stitch and the dark blue one is heavy yarn and I cast on 8 stitches onto size 11 needles. It is about 3" wide. I wanted it to be narrow and long. The one below was on 15" needles and very soft yarn, and there were 15 stitches cast on. It is 9" wide. It is sort of loopy, but I like it. Hope that gives you a idea for how many cast on and size of needles and weight of yarn factors in. Thought it might help if you could see what the garter stitch looks like and if you think you are doing it right or not. I see there are still some fringe thingys I need to trim on the purple one. This link to a learn to knit page might be helpful, too. Just remember...."It is just yarn, ya'll". I read that at Crazy Aunt Purl's the other night and it is sort of liberating to know that is all it is...yarn. She has some really cool scarves on her blog now. I might have to hurry and finish the one I'm working on now so I can get to that one.
