so i just finished Le Slouch in stockinette and it is FREEZING here in boston so i thought i would make a nice scarf to match. problem being i dont have any good scarf patterns that are made up of a decent amount of stockinette stitch. i'd like the scarf to at least match a little bit- so if any of you have a good scarf pattern with a decent amount of stockinette let me know Smiley i just dont want it to be too plain. thanks!

Stockinette st rolls, which is why knitters don't like it for scarves knit flat.  If you wants to knit one in the round or double knit, then it'd be a different story. (See http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/advanced-techniques).

yeah, i know stockinette rolls which is why i wanted to find a pattern that had a decent amount so it would at least match the hat, but most of the scarf patterns i have saved are mostly cables or intricate patterns. but thanks for the suggestion!

I dont know if this one will help you out;

http://www.crazyauntpurl.com/archives/2005/06/magic_scarf_a_b_1.php

but its Crazy Aunt Purl's Magic scarf - basically blocks of stockinette stitch, and reverse stockinette stitch - making it look a bit like a checker board Smiley

Check out lace scarves like this  http://www.mtholyoke.edu/~bsennott/Falling%20Water%20Pattern.pdf

or knittingpatterncentral.com's lace patterns, or plug in any stocking stitch-based pattern into a scarf size. I think you should either add a crochet edge, a garter/moss stitch edge, or knit it in the round.

How about stocking with just a few diagonal eyelets? Say4-7 rows apart like the Mata Hari socks? Or something from Knitty?
