I knitted up a swatch of what I thought would be the pattern for the scarf I'm knitting for the exchange. This is just one pattern repeat, and I like the center. I'm not sure about the weaving pattern on the edges though. Do you think it would look better with a 6 stitch cable on the sides instead of the weaving? Or any other ideas? Another idea I thought was to be a 2 knit stitch rib between the center and the two side panels.
BTW this is not the yarn I'm going to use...I just wanted to see what this would look like in reality vs on paper. Oh and I made a mistake on the right side weaving that you can see...I cabled the wrong way but didn't see a need to fix it for this swatch.
