Look at this vintage pattern over at Yet Another Canadian Artisan. Isn't it cute?
I saw this pattern made up at the Fingerlakes Machine Knitting seminar a couple of weeks ago. It's very pretty, drapey, good on both sides, and nicely flat. These scarves are especially pretty in a slow-patterning yarn like Magicolor (sigh...sure wish that one were still available!). With the slow color changes, you get lovely diagonal coloration. Magicolor was nice, too, because being a little on the thin side, it was such a silky scarf.
A nice variation is to switch direction halfway through.
Hmm, gotta get busy and knit this one.
