I have to make a VERY last minute gift for my sister in law. I'm going to knit her a scarf out of very chunky yarn to make it fast. Does anyone know of an interesting and EASY stitch I could do? I want to make something other than stockinette or garter.

Thanks! Smiley

Flirty scarf? Really cute and easy.

Drop stitch?

Twisted Drop stitch?

Twister? A variation of the drop stitch

Lacy scarf?

Hope that helps! Smiley

Seed stitch is cool if you aren't using obnoxiously large needles Smiley

I saw a woman with a twister stitched scarf at this local restaurant in town and i wanted to ask her if she made it herself but i always wimp out with stuff like that.

 A my so-called scarf on bigger needles than usual?
I've used boucle on 15mm needles for a great effect - didn't really look like garter (finished a blanket in 10 days for Xmas prezzy).
Seed stitch is quite slow if you knit with wool in right hand though

Forgot to add, check out any stitch dictionary for something suitable (or Google).

hi! i just made a chunky scarf for my brother's girlfriend which just took me two evenings - all it was, was seed stitch on 12mm needles, cast on 13 stitches and knitted through two balls of rowan big wool, with a fringe at either end. it comes out really squishy and nice!
