I want to knit a quick gift for my Mom. I thought of a fashionable scarf, about 4 feet long, 2 to 4 inches wide, quick knit, maybe wide ribbon. Or some silky color changing stuff? I need to go to my LYS to get inspiration.
I really don't want to make it multicolored, though, because it shall fit her outfits easily and look good with a pullover, blazer, blouse...
I just made one for myself all in bamboo stitch, wide ribbon, very airy material, dense knit. That looks nice.
I do not have a lot of days left to make it (it is just the additional gift, though, so no big project) and was looking for good ideas.
I do not need a pattern for a scarf, of course, long, thin, all fine.
My question is more: does anyone have a sparkling idea for a stitch pattern? I might mostly knit on the train so complicated charts / instructions would not be ideal.
I was thinking of some cable design... might be a possibility, mh?
or some nice stitch?
Maybe just the ends in a lace / stitch / and the middle in stochinette?
I will probably just jump for some idea soon, I just thought, you might have input for me....
linnen stitch for the ends, stoch. for the rest?
bamboo, just like mine (a bit boring to do the same thing twice, mh?)
Edit: Wow! Post no. 100!
