Technically, it's not a completed project, but I was so excited about my results, I felt compelled to post.

I originally purchased some sport-weight yarn in hopes to make a lacy scarf, but then I experimented with the linen stitch.

(Apologies for the quality, it was the best I could muster.  Also, to note: this was knit with needles one size larger than suggested. Yarn: Red Heart Luster Sheen in Autumn.)

The dense stitch complements the thinner yarn quite nicely.  In addition, since every other stitch each row is slipped, you get this really interesting effect with variegated yarn.  (None of the traditional solid striping that tends to happen with plain stockinette stitch.)


* Linen Stitch
Row 1 (RS): K1, *slip 1 with yarn in front, k1; rep from *
Row 2: K1, p1, *slip 1 with yarn in back, p1; rep from *, end k1

Its kinda hard to see, but it looks sooooo neat.  How many colors of yarn are you using?  I'm going to have to try to do this myself...

Wow!  Really nice!  What does the other side of the scarf look like?  Is it reversable? 

Funny how we buy a yarn with one idea, and experimentation leads us in such divergent directions...

Just one yarn, that's variegated.  It has four or so colors in it.  I'll try to get a picture of the detail, since it is really nifty.

The other side is ridge-ier, so it looks like reverse stockinette with the slipped bands.

I'm really glad I trusted my instinct.  That little voice that told me, "Urrr... lace with this?  NOT GOOD!  Try something else..."
