I have a few random balls of some worsted weight pale turquoise %100 cotton yarn and was planning on making a scarf out of it. I just can't pick a pattern! I wasn't sure if a rib was the way to go or maybe some lace.. Hmm...
Any recommendations?

I'd scratch the scarf idea and make some dishcloths instead.  But then again I love knitting dishcloths Smiley.

Bespectacled,
I knit the Branching Out scarf from Knitty using 100% cotton and it turned out great. Its really nice because you can wear it in the spring and summer, as opposed to those all wool scarves  Smiley

Cotton and lace tend to go together really well (you don't "lose" the pattern) so I'll second that idea.

Since summer is coming, you can always do the Knit&Tonic Dream Swatch:

There are also 38 patterns for cotton on Knitting Pattern Central, just type in the word "cotton" in the search field:

You've already started but I just thought that I'd let you know that the Irish Hiking Scarf is great in cotton.
