The Scrunchable Scarf
is a nice one to make--just k2, p1 all the way across on both sides. Several people have made them with various yarns. Do a search for Scrunchable Scarf and you should be able to find some pictures. They're much nicer than the picture with the pattern.
has about a kazillion scarves there, too, if you feel like looking.
I once lived in Suncook, NH. Ever hear of it?
