Need a simple scarf pattern for a busy yarn >>>
http://cache.lionbrand.com/graphics/yarns/540-skein.jpg

I'd like to use a stitch that makes the color pop, but NO cables!!! (Sorry, I'm currently at odds with cable until later this afternoon)

What would be an interesting and relatively simple stitch or pattern to keep me entertained until I can get my vest in the shop later?

because there's this but it says it does better with a slippery/silkier yarn-
this is 50/50 wool/silk

It's bulky....
calls for 13 needles but I think an 11 would work fine.

Seed stitch???
I don't think you can beat casting on 17 stitches and using 10 1/2 needles and the doing a simple seed stitch.....with the odd number of stitches you can knit, purl, repeat for every row....I have actually made one out of the yarn you have shown and just loved it.....

It might look good in a double moss st (need a multiple of 4 sts so CO 16 or 20 sts).
K2, p2 for 2 rows then p2, k2 for rows. Repeat.

What color did you use? I'm not liking this one too much, but I do have Rose Garden at home.

Hmm.
