This is driving me mad, mainly because I know what I want but I can't seem to find a pattern, OR any sort of visual, and I'm not really experienced enough to be able to just design my own thing.   Roll Eyes

Okay, so today I bought some gorgeous hand dyed yarn, but because it was expensive I couldn't buy much, so I thought I'd try and make myself a scarf/neckpiece type thing...  But I can't find any patterns or anything anywhere!  I really want something more like a scarf than a neckpiece, but with a twist.  Like, all different stitches and gauges.  Just something other than the average long straight scarf in garter or rib. 

To help, here are some links of things I think are gorgeous.

http://www.studioloo.com/Descriptions/accessoriespops/spectrum_pod_scarf.htm  (And pretty much everything on that website - http://www.studioloo.com/accessories.htm)

Hope someone can help!  I'll give you a cookie.   Tongue Kiss

A few ideas:

You could try a Nagano Sakura:
