Goldilocks yarn! It's for my d-i-l who just wrote me to ask. Anyone know a good one, not too difficult? She's a beginning knitter who just took her first knitting course last fall, but works very carefully and has nice tension already! a keener....

With a fuzzy yarn like that you don't need a complicated pattern. Garter st, or stockinette with garter edges will look good. Ribbing may be okay, or a basketweave pattern - k6, p6 for 6 rows then switch to p6, k6 for 6 rows.

that yarn looks somewhat like "Poodle" by Drops. Due to an unfortunate misstranslating or a lack of correspondence between Norvegian and English they write "Puddel" in their yarn choice :)
But here is my search on their site for all projects out of that yarn. Some scarfs included, of course.
The patterns are free and available in English:
Edit: Haha, you can not link a real search result... please put "Puddel" into the yarn choice and make a search. Sorry.
This one here might be a nice twist to a simple garter stitch scarf:
Or one with a hood?

I'm gonna have to aggree with Suzeeq on this. Any real pattern is just gonna get lost in that yarn. Stick with something simple.

not to create confusion: I too agree on a very simple stitch sequence: garter or stochinette. The 2 patterns I linked are nothing else - they just are about the shaping of a scarf. The first one gets looped through itself and the second one has a hood.

Another vote for a garter stitch scarf. I am doing one with a super-bulky weight yarn that is curly like that and it is turning out very nice.

I recently used the Mistake Stitch for a scarf and fell in love with it! I don't think the accordian effect will be lost using this yarn. Might try a few rows and see if you like it? Very simple pattern.

Thanks, CatToy, I printed it out, will mail it to her. I'm putting together a booklet for her, of my favorite patterns which are free on the 'net.
