scarf plus intarsia
Hi all--I have a question about a scarf I'm planning to knit. It's a ribbed scarf (I think k2, p2). I'd like to knit it in green and put a candy cane motif at the end of it and make it a holiday scarf, but I don't know if that will work with the ribbing (if I knit the candy cane in sockinette). Will it work, or should I knit the scarf in something else? Thanks!

well i think if you are going to do this without a pattern the biggest challenge would be in keeping the ribs even. have you considered doing (just as an example) 3 inches of ribbing, six inches of stockinette for the candy can space, and then the rest in the ribbing again?

i may be wrong but as i think about trying to get that ribbing around the stockinette candy can AND doing the intarsia it sounds like a painful process to me.

I agree. I've never seen intarsia done in ribbing, though it may be possible. My though was to also leave the candy cane section flat--even if it has ribbing on the outside edges of the scarf.
