Strong bright colors were the first thing that came to mind for me but that probably reflects a personal preference, too. I would go the the store or to your stash and put a few colors together and see what appeals. It could be as easy as stripes knit either the short way across or you could cast on a large number of stitches and knit the scarf with stripes running the length of the scarf.

I agree with Salmonmac. Just find some nice colors that look good together. The point is to probably make the recipient feel cheerful and loved.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

Since the request came to you, I would advise that you check with your own gut feeling on this. Check out your stash and feel what might be right for this, or go to a yarn store and do the same. Don't take too long at it. Gut feelings work quickly, and you need to pick something before the logic brain starts talking. and ENJOY!
