:muah: I am really bored and want a new pattern to work on I have looked at most of these patterns but none of them suit me and I want to make something simple that doesn't take to long but doesn't; take me 2 seconds! If anyone had a favorite thing they worked on when they first started you could either tell me what it is or send me a link.


THANKS!!!!:thumbsup:

Try a dish or wash cloth, they're fairly small but not always simple. This site (http://www.groupepp.com/dishbout/kpatterns/knitting.html) has dozens of patterns using different stitch patterns. Or you could make a bunch of them and sew together to make a scarf or small blanket.

Seems like when I come here, I always have a favor to ask...Please accept my thank you's in advance.
I have been looking for a simple,but not boring all knit/or all knit and purl scarf. It seems what I'm finding is super boring,or lots and lots of yo's,and knit behind the whatevers that I can possible do even if I want to...(well maybe then)but not on a trip. What I am looking for is maybe a pattern repeat every other row,with a few k rows inbetween..you all know what I'm talking about..something I can memorize. I've been looing for two day,and I'm tired...whew!;) so if you have something to offer beyond 'feather and fan'...gosh I'd love to hear about it. Your all the best!:inlove: take care....wholycow

Well feather and fan fits your description of a pattern row then plain rows, but it can be tricky even though it's fairly simple.

Try the Clapotis (http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall04/PATTclapotis.html). It's basically stockinette, has increases or decs at the ends of the rows because it's knit on the diagonal, but you get to drop some stitches for a really cool effect, especially in yarn with long color changes. It's kind of a shawl, but you can do less of the repeats in the increase section to make a scarf.

I don't know that it has a name. i got it from Annie's Attic and it was called scarf A (it was a flyer with 6 different scarfs on it.) This has 9 rows to the pattern repeat (but the pattern is realy only 2 rows)
Odd rows (1,3,5,7,9) K1 P1
Even rows (2,4,6,8) K
Because it repeats an odd number of rows the pattern switches sides.
