I have a cousin who is 14-years-old and a very trendy girl and my mother would like for me to knit her a scarf.  What's trendy right now in terms of scarves?  What colour is trendy?

Lace scarves?  Bulky scarves?  Stripy scarves?  Thin scarves?
I have no idea!

Please help me!

Cables are HUGE now!  The thin scarf trend seems to have gone out...
I'd say to go to some of the stores she likes and check out their scarves, then see if you can find some similar patterns.  Good luck!

http://brooklyntweed.blogspot.com/2007/04/noro-scarf.html  I think going for a timeless look is best.  Maybe have her pick some colorways she likes.  I think most Noro's pretty in combination.

Not to sound all airhead but thin scarves are out and chunky ones are in according to Cosmo.

I saw a girl with a dropped stitch scarf in this Hawaiian BBQ Restaurant near me and I thought that was so cool. I was always into that kinda Boho look though.

Cables are huge but I'm not good that them at all!! LOL!

I love chunky scarves and cables.

And fun fur is definitely out.

I think chunky scarves made out of slub yarn (the kind that goes thick and thin) are big right now.  I think there are some great hand-dyed yarn options out there.
I know I like them! Grin

Maybe double-strand a thick wool on huge needles, garter stitch? I think that looks good.
If it's not a surprise, could you show her some swatches or pictures and ask what kind of thing she would like?
I think lace is cool... but don't know if actually fashionable, maybe something with her name or initials in it?
Or the Binary scarf from Knitty, or the Magknits one in black and yellow made to look like crime scene tape?
Or an illusion scarf would be cool?

You can say that again! Yippeeeeeeeee!!  Cheesy

I second...um...fifth? sixth? The chunky and/or cabled look.

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley
