OK, so my daughter wants a scarf in the spirit of Wesley Crusher's sweater in Star Trek.
Easy enough, except she wants the stripes on one end of the scarf, and diagonal. I haven't really done colorwork before, and I want the stripes to be the same on both sides, so I'm not sure how to do this.
The scarf is plain grey wool to resemble the sweater. I decided to do alternating blocks of stocking stitch, k8, p8, k8, p8, k8, then reverse in the other direction so I have columns of knit, then purl, etc. Seemed like it would give it more interest than plain stocking stitch or garter.
I could do the stripes in duplicate stitch afterward, but they'd be nicer knitted in. Any suggestions on how to do diagonal stripes that look the same on both sides?
