i'm making a scarf for my boyfriend's mom and i want to do somthing different than garter stitch or rib, but i don't want it to take me forever, I only have 2 days. I probable should have started earlier. :wall: does anyone have a recommendation?
thanks

How about basketweave (http://members.cox.net/knittingabout/graphics/basketweavest.jpg)??

Or check out the stitches Knitting Pattern Central (http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/directory/stitches.php) and About Knitting (http://knitting.about.com/library/blstitches.htm).

Good Luck :)

Thanks so much. Those links are great. The basketweave is very pretty. I have already bought the yarn and it is sort of thick and 100% wool, i dont know if that would work with the elongated scarf? I also just found this post and i love the scarf. It may take me a little longer but she can wait. http://www.sheepinthecity.prettyposies.com/archives/000079.html

Thanks again for your help.

Yay! I am so glad you're doing this!! I saw this pattern weeks ago, and *loved* it but I couldn't figure out this part (in red):
K1, *sl 1, K1, psso but before dropping the slipped stitch from the left needle, knit into the back of it * repeat until there is one stitch left, K1

this means knit into the back of the slipped stitch I am passing over???? how's that work? why does it say the slipped stitch that i'm passing over is on the LEFT needle.... in my head it should be on the right :thinking: and how does the previous stitch (k1) not get in the way?

I feel like such a dork when i have to ask questions like this :wall:

Yes, you knit into the back of the slipped stitch, the one you pass over. You pass it over the knitted stitch and then you will have the sl 1 on the left needle and the knitted stitch on the right needle. (this is a bit awkward at first) then you knit into the back of the slipped stitch. I hope you give it a try, it is an awesome pattern. :)

Ashley...Did you use the yarn called for in the pattern and if so, where did you find it?
