Fast scarf that isn't drop stitch?
I'm looking for a fast knit, possibly lacy type but with worsted type scarf, that isn't a drop-stitch style, I just don't care for that look. Any ideas?

Eve's rib with large needles will produce a lacy fabric. I used size 11 needles.
I like to add 2 stitches so I can slip the first stitch of each row and knit the last. If you do this, you'll k 4 at the end of row 1 and k2 at the end of row 2.

Eve's Rib
Cast on in multiples of 4.

Row 1: *knit three, bring yarn forward, slip stitch as if to purl, bring yarn back, repeat pattern from *, end with knit three (Or knit 4 for slip stitch edge).

Row 2: knit one, bring yarn forward, slip stitch as if to purl, bring yarn back, *knit three, bring yarn forward, slip stitch as if to purl, bring yarn back, repeat pattern from *, end with knit one (or knit 2 for slip stitch edge).

I just finished a My So Called Scarf -- it was pretty quick and it shows off variegated yarn so nicely! I used bulky yarn on US15 needles...it makes a really thick fabric so I think if I'd used worsted I still would have done it on pretty big needles, US10-11. It's a 2-row repeat, very easy to memorize and knit on the run. :D

Mimi, it's the little pattern that could! My blog gets hundreds of hits every day, all for this pattern: Basic Earflap Hat :D

If you read through the comments there are tips on making it in different sizes/with different weights of yarn....but if you have a question you don't see answered, feel free to PM me. :D
