Fav pattern for single color scarf?
I am going to try to knit a scarf for my mother by Sunday, I'd like to hear what your favorite one color scarves are. I've never knit a scarf since it is always usually hot down here, but I will be knitting a few this year (maybe). My brother lives in Colorado, and my mom has short hair this year.

I'm hoping for something not too involved because I need to be done by Sunday. But something that's not just garter or stockinette would be nice

I like to knit long skinny striped scarves. You cast on 150-200 st depending on length and yarn weight, and then every row you switch colors. Makes a pretty scarf.

How about the Touch Of Whimsy Scarf by our very own Becca? It's lovely.

One of the first scarves I ever made was the "Quick Knit Gift Scarf" on the Frugal Knitting Haus website.

It makes a thick, pretty scarf, and goes very quick!

Another quick, nice scarf is the Scrunchable. Just k2,p1 on every row, allowing another stitch at each end for an edge. Slip the first stitch, k2, p1 across, and knit the last stitch. Any multiple of 3 + 2 will work. It goes quickly, works with most any yarn and makes a soft, warm scarf.

I'm with Ingrid -- if I were in a hurry, I'd knit a Scrunchable.

I'm doing one in basketweave right now.

Cast on 28 stitches
k4, p4 across to last 4 stitches, k4
p4, k4 across to last 4 stitches, p4
k4, p4 across to last 4 stitches, k4
p4, k4 across to last 4 stitches, p4

p4, k4 across to last 4 stitches, p4
k4, p4 across to last 4 stitches, k4
p4, k4 across to last 4 stitches, p4
p4, k4 across to last 4 stitches, p4

Etc, until it is as long as you want it. I'm using Lamb's Pride bulky, it's really wide. It's not going very fast because I usually only knit it for about 10-30 minutes during my lunch break.

Thanks for all the input. I was anxious to start last night, so I looked through my encyclopedia and chose a dragonscale pattern and just cast on 26 sts and knit away. I've done about 3 pattern repeast now. You can't really see the pattern much with the selfstriping yarn I'm using, but at least I'm not bored I think I would go crazy doing something really repetitive. This pattern has 12 rows to follow before repeating, but only 6 need my attention.

I will be knitting two more scarves this year though, hopefully. So I am thinking I will knit one illusion scarf for my brother's girlfriend and he wants a tweed yarn, so I'm thinking for him i may go with a cables or one of the scarves you guys mentioned. Thanks again!
