It look about 3 hours and is a good second project.  So, if you’ve perfected the basic scarf, this is a great next step.  You’ll learn to increase and decrease and how to put stitches onto two needles.  If you need help, Ravelry is a great source for all things knitting and crocheting – including great free patterns!

Happy Knitting!
