What's your favorite scarf pattern???
Winter's on it's way (for some of you, it's already here and I'm SO jealous!). I want to knit scarves--I think it's just that time of year where scarf wearing hits me...so I'm curious...what's your favorite scarf pattern??? (yes, I know this has been done before but there has to be new ones out there, right?)...

I like Danica and My so called scarf although I've knitted neither...

Recent ones--I just made My So Called Scarf and love it. I also love the Scrunchable for a quick no-brainer. I made Besotted and it was fun, too.

I love knitting scarves!

I like the multidirectional scarf and the short row rib scarf (from Magknits) for variegated yarns.

I love lacy patterns too - I like the Dayflower scarf and Branching out.

I'm also completely in love with the braided scarf on the cover of the holiday vogue knitting issue this year.

I think this is the time for me too.. I usually don't think about knitting scarves till fall hits lol...

my so called went fast and I really like it... I also like the lacy scarves.. the one I reach for the most often is this one from knitty gritty the skinny scarf... I found the Vogue Holiday book yesterday and can't wait to start this one ... I like knitting scarves esp for gifts.. although 1/2 way through them I do have to make myself finish them before starting something else I have seen..

I like the scrunchable scarf for a quick n easy scarf.... it was such a great use for one skein of malabrigo! I'm doing the irish hiking right now and it's great way to learn cables!

Dustinac--I like that little skinny scarf pattern--I might give it a try--it looks super easy! I'm thinking about Danica (w/o the accent color) for dh--I think he'd like it in the dark and light grey or black and white. The my so called scarf has been in the back of my head for some time...I even have two hanks of Noro Kochoran held aside for it! I'm glad to hear it knits up quickly b/c that has been my hesitation--I hate psso and I see that it's in the pattern....I guess this would be a good way for me to practice and get better at that stitch...

The psso in the So-Called seemed very easy--maybe because I used large needles. There is one tip I learned, though, that worked out very, very well.

The directions tell you to psso, but before dropping it off the needle to knit into the back of it. Sounds confusing. I read a tip on this, followed it and you get the same results--do a yo before psso. Pass the slipped stitch over the knt and the yo. The results are exactly the same, but it seems just so much easier to keep the pattern flowing.

So it's sl1, k1, yo, psso the knit and the yo.

That's a great tip Ingrid...I think you've inspired me to try it. I'll have to play with it to see exactly what you mean but it makes sense on paper. Do you think the Noro I mentioned would be a good substitute? I chose it b/c my secret yarn buddy gave it to me and I wasn't sure what to do with it. It's such a beautiful yarn that I selfishly thought I should use it for myself.

I liked both the My so and the skinny cause I could do them while the kids were running around lol.. I started Danica last spriing for me without an accent in a purple and teal color its still not finished.. I need to finish it now that I can use it again...
