Nice stitch! It really does look like bamboo.

When my hubby and I went to Biltmore Estate last year, we drove through Mr. Vanderbilt's bamboo forest. Amazing! So, yes, I have seen bamboo in the wild, and this stitch looks a lot like it. Cool!

Hey!
I am glad I could add something to your vast repertoir.
This stitch is really fun to work and makes great decorations on sweaters and such, too. The easiness of incorporation into st st makes it really versatile.

And scarfs...

I have also done experiments with the woven basket stitch that there was that "quest" for: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...itch-dishcloth
That looked really nice in thick yarn and would make a nice warm scarf.

Also my "I don't beliefe in scarfs" is a fast rib and cable scarf that makes knitting quick and the result enjoyable.

Thanks, he wanted a hat, that is when I came up with that one. Then I had this big roll of yarn (Lion Brand Fishermen's) kicking around and thought of a matching scarf - but did not want to knit those tiny eyelets all the way down. That is how and why.
I do like the result and my husband plain LOVES his scarf. He wears it all the time at the moment and enjoys people turning around for it.

Dollyce, drop-stitch scarves are SO fun! It's really fun when you pick an interesting yarn, and the scarf knits very quickly. You could probably make one in an hour.

Shandeh, I'm making some scarves too. I found this 'skinny scarf' pattern last year and made a few light and fluffy spring/fall weight scarves for a friend. They knit up real fast because you start with 3 stitches, knit 10 rows, inc 1, knit 10 rows, inc 1, knit 10 rows....until you have 20 stitches on needle; then you reverse and dec 1, knit 10 rows until down to 3 stitches again. It's kinda fun!

but now I've decided to try the skinny pattern with bulky yarn....not sure I"m liking it yet, but may persist to the middle at least.




This is what the summer version looks like:(it would be great to wear to Christmas parties).
