Ok, I am insanely jealous.  My aunt gave my Nana 6 balls of Trendsetter Kashmir (cashmere/silk blend).  You can't get that stuff in NZ and even if you could, I wouldn't be able to afford it.

Oh well.  Nana wants to knit a scarf with it (in fact, my aunt bought it just so that Nana would have something to do!  ummm, surely in that case acrylic would do just as well!  Oh well, I think I'll just have to get her to leave me the resulting scarf in her will...).  The thing is, Nana's eyesight is pretty bad and because it's so expensive she doesn't want to stuff it up!  So, although she was an ace knitter in her day, she needs a really easy pattern for this scarf.  It also needs to be something that looks nice on both sides.  And of course, does justice to the beautiful yarn.  See my dilemma?  Oh, and the recommended needle size is 6mm.  If anyone could suggest a pattern I'd be eternally grateful!

I don't know if it's variegated colors, but what about doing something like a chevron?  or even plain diagonal ribbing?  I've actually been wanting to get around to making a scarf w/ diagonal ribbing for a while.

Actually, this was a pattern I originally had in mind, but couldn't remember where I saw it:

It's "wavy" instead of plain ol' diagonal Smiley

Yeah, I think Wavy would be really nice for it but I'm a bit worried about Nana getting the pattern straight.  From what I recall, it involves a lot of having to remember what line you are on.  Remembering stuff is not Nana's forte any more!

Maybe she could do a basketweave pattern?

Hmm...  Anyway, thanks for your help!
