What Would You Do?

Knit Picks Andean SilkI'm about half way done with my version of this toddler sweater by Margaret Hubert. I'm doing seed stitch instead of garter on the sleeve cuffs and collar, plus I've added a tiny bit of striping on the sleeve.

That's not the reason for the post, however. I need some suggestions for a quick and fun birthday present scarf for a 10-year old girl. I only have a few days to devote to it and I just got the yarn today. It's Knit Picks Andean Silk in variegated blue-green-yarrow. Her mom assures me that the colors are perfect. I just need to find the right pattern - knit or crochet doesn't matter.

So please stitchers, put on your thinking caps and give me your pattern ideas. Gracias, and I do mean mucho!

I wanted a scarf that I could wrap around my neck and still have ends hanging. I bought a lot of yarn, couldn't find a pattern that pleased me, so I made up a pattern and ended up with an extremely long scarf, one that rivals Dr Who. I just did row after row of double crochet. I finished it off with some "fun fur" all around the edges. I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for, but a scarf is easy. I'm sure you'll come up with something.

Hi Karen-

Laurie has a cool scarf on her blog (Crazy Aunt Purl) with drop stitch and looped ends for fringe. She's using a super bulky yarn so I'm not sure how it translates to yours but it's a cute starting point :)

That yarn would probably look great if you knit the Misty Garden scarf from Scarf Style. (If you don't have the book you could always drop into the library to.. er... steal it.)
