Just finished knitting this scrumptious yellow scarf for myself (I love yellow) and it's ready for blocking. It's a pattern called "Susan's Simply Sensational Lace Shawl & Scarf in Multiple Gauges" by Lynn Wilson Designs and it was a pleasure to knit. I purchased mine at Knitting Central. I knit this scarf with Plymouth Yarn, Encore, Knitting Worsted Weight, Gauge 5 sts = 1" on a US #8/Yardage 200 yds, 75% Acrylic and 25% Wool, Yellow #215, machine wash gentle cycle tumble dry. My scarf is 60" long and I used about 1-1/2 skeins. Very soft and cozy.
Here's a close-up of the pattern:
Basically, it's worked over a multiple of four stitches - knit 2, yo, k2tog - but it has a nice border on each end (which didn't make it into the photo). Her instructions include a multi-gauge chart for a scarf or a shawl. This would be lovely in almost any yarn you choose.
P.S. - It's funny, but when I find a song, no matter how many versions there are of it, I almost always go with Frankie.
