I have a bunch of boucle that I bought when I first started knitting and I wanted to make scarves with it, but I think I would get bored with a garter stitch scarf. Does anyone know of any patterns that wouldn't be too obscured by this yarn? Thanks!

You could do a stockinette stitch, but most patterns are going to get eaten up by the texture of the yarn. It would roll unless you do some garter stitches on the edges.

You can find a wealth of patterns @ www.knittngpatterncentral.com

Thanks for the replies. I may try some in stockinette stitch, even without the garter stitch border. With these, some curl may not matter. I'll just have to see.

And I actually looked through every scarf pattern on knittingpatterncentral.com (yes, it did take me awhile, but it was fun!), but I still wasn't sure which of them would work well with this type of yarn. I haven't done much with boucle in the past.

If anyone has any more suggestions, feel free to add them!
