Well, I thought I might as well write up what I'm doing for the Red Scarf Project. I chose a reversible stitch pattern The New Knitting Stitch Library (Lesley Stanfield, Lark Books), and worked two repeats with a garter border. While the 16 row repeat may look daunting, this is a very logical, easily learned pattern. The sequence of stitches remains the same. It just shifts to the right for the first eight rows, then to the left for the next eight rows.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, the pattern is a rib variation and draws in while working; but when done in 100% wool blocks flat very nicely. The pattern stitch was originally given in charted format only. I've translated to line by line directions, but there's also a chart at the end.
