    best patterns for fall/winter scarves!!!!

    i'm a beginning knitter looking to work on a scarf for my sister's bday. i've got the yarn- LION BRAND- acrylic (i'm working on a budget :)
    it's fairly bulky, maybe sz 11 needles.

    does anyone have any great patterns? besides the standard ribbing...

    thank you!

    The Show Knitty Gritty on the DIY Network just had a show on decorative stitches.

    Check out the basketweave stitch down at the bottom, I think this is so pretty!

    If you can make it to a bookstore, look for "The Ultimate Sourcebook od Kitting and Crochet Stitches" by Reader's Digest. They have so many different patterns it willmake your head spin. They also list the drape, and the skill level for each pattern (I am doing the Flag 1 on page 43) I suggest, if you don't want to make the investment, just sit down, find a patter, and copy it out. The have everything from lace to cables to heavyweight as well as edgings. I just love flipping through the book and planning the 100's of scarves I need to make to use all my favorites.
    good luck

    true Brioche stitch is awesome for scarves. it is reverible, soft, warm, and works up quickly. the pattern is in EZ's Knitting Without Tears, or google it.
