I love Stephanie's free pattern, and have made several scarves from it. i'm a boring, un-adventurous knitter and just love doing plain old scarves, many of them. They make great gifts, especially if you offer them as "a hug from afar". So I send them off in the mail.
This latest one I got a wee bit bold with, and alternated 2-inch pieces of Stephanie's 4-stitch pattern (k2, k1b, p1) with a similar width band of seed stitch. Can you see it in the center?
This is what I have so far, but am toying with the idea of adding in some of this soft beige yarn, maybe in a cable stitch. Woohoo!
and if I get even braver (WooWhee!) I might also add in a chocolate brown yarn stripe or two. Not sure there's enough of any one yarn for an entire scarf.
