Hey!  I've got another free pattern up on my site if you guys want to check it out.  I knit it as a sample that's ultimately going to wind up in the hands of an 8 year old girl (hence the colors Smiley ), but here's how it looks on me:

And here's my cool artsy pattern photo shot:

But the coolest thing about this is that I may have invented a new stitch!  Well, most likely not, but I haven't seen it in any books so if anyone else has, let me know.  But for now, I'm calling it the Bunny Head Stitch, because it looks like little bunny heads to me:

I had wanted to do a diagonal scarf, but wanted to fancy up the garter stitch a bit.  Hence, the bunny heads.  Anyway, the scarf is uber easy to knit (no purling!), and I think I'll probably wind up making one for me, using different colored yarn.

Thanks for checking it out.  I forgot to mention the texture that the stitch pattern gives the scarf - it's very nubbly, kind of like a washcloth.  And I didn't have to block it at all - I thought since I knitted it on the bias it would be all stretchy and weird, but it hangs perfectly straight.  No blocking = yay!  Smiley

This is a beautiful scarf. And I must say that I adore the color combos that you used! I also love the texture, it has a tweedy effect. I think I may try this one out... Well, once I finish my other scarf that I started in December... hrmmm...

This scarf is gorgeous. I already cast one on for my girlfriend! It's completely gorgeous and I love the pattern and the texture. :-)

That is so pretty!  I love the little bunny-ear stitches.  It looks perfectly springy.

I love it, especially the bunny head stitch.   What kind of yarn did you use?

My partner, Gail, and I have a small (tiny!) business where we sell hand-dyed yarn, roving, and fabric, so we used some of our Whisper, which is an 50/50 Alpaca/Wool blend.  You can see it better here: http://cidermoon.com/whisper.html  I used the colorway "Giddy."
