Hello All!

I'm working on a scarf for grandma with about 4 inches of lace on each end. I'm looking for a stitch pattern that will look nice on both sides and will not be too bulky to go with the lacey ends. Any ideas?

I've started the lace end, but am still in the planning stages for the scarf. I'm using a bulky yarn with size 10 1/2 needles and while the lace is not delicate and small, it still looks pretty and I feel it will make the scarf more unique and feminine.

Thanks,
Amy

What sort of stitch pattern do you have in mind? Cables, ribbing, moss stitch?

There is a section here on reversible sts. Mostly K & P combinations. which, I think, can be pretty.

Maybe you could try to 'match' the overall shape of the lace pattern, of there is one. Like a chevron lace, with chevron k/p sts. or diamond shape lace with k/p diamonds

Broken rib is nice too :

Row 1 : Knit
Row 2: P1 K1 (repeat these two stitches)

Repeat rows 1 and 2
