Hey all-
My mom's just requested a black & white scarf for Christmas.

Has anyone ever seen a reversible two tone scarf pattern? Maybe something in a slip stitch? I'm ordering yarn right now, but gotta get the pattern too.... Help? Please?

Here are a few peeks at bi-color brioche scarves. The finished work is quite thick, spongy has a great drape and is reversible.

I think black and white would look very good in this pattern

One of the fellas at a knit together I was at was doing a beautiful argyle double knit scarf in black and white... truly amazing. classic and stunning scarf. I could not even imagine how one would actually do double knitting.

The Corrugator Scarf: looks good alternating two rows of each color.

Hi Eric,

Take a look at this: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/PATTexchequered.html Pretty cool.

I love double knitting - if you haven't done it before, it's not hard at all, but note: it does take longer than regular knitting.

Think less, enjoy it more.

I love it too, and it is just as easy as regular knitting, but you are sooooo right. It does take much longer. That's actually the pattern I am planning on knitting myself once I sit down and actually get started on it. LOL

Someone just posted a houndstooth scarf on ravelry and I thought of this post. I really like the scarf.
