So, the deal is - I have some beautiful yarn sent to me by a friend, and I absolutely must knit a scarf with it. The problem is - I tried knitting Mom's Sophisticated Scarf from SnB Nation with it, but the gauge is just odd, the stitches are too wide and thus would not be a warm scarf. I tried altering gauges and such to make it work, but bah.
SO - I've come to you witty and awesome crafters with a challenge - can you guys help me scour the web for a good scarf pattern?
Rules - I'd like something along the same lines as the Mom's Sophisticated - that is, a relatively wide and long scarf, with SOME sort of a pattern to it - whether it be an interesting rib, some sort of basketweave pattern, whatever - nothing too difficult but will make it a little more interesting then, say, a 2x2 rib or garter stitch.
I mean, if there's something you think I might like, post it anyway - I'd love to see as many possible patterns as possible!
Here's the yarn specs:
Rowan felted tweed
50% merino wool / 25% alpaca / 25% viscose/rayon
gauge: 22 sts and 30 rows = 4 in in st st (size 5 US/3.5mm/9 UK needles)Link to the Rowan site with the yarn itself.
Thank you all in advance! <3
