Gauge for bulky yarn (#6) in Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick solid is 106 yds.
Gauge:
Knit: 9 stitches x 12 rows = 4" (10 cm) on size 13 (9 mm) needles
Crochet: 6.6 sc and 8 rows = 4" (10 cm) on size N-13 (9 mm) hook

For even stripes (say 4 rows each alternately)you would probably need 2 skeins of each color. Since your yarn is only 81 yd., you may need 1 more of one color. Just a note, 17" wide and in bulky yarn is going to make a heavy scarf.

This pattern requires two skeins and is 8 x 60. So at least 2 of each color.
