I had my heart set on a herringbone pattern from that huge treasury of knitting patterns until I realized that it had a scalloped edge. Any other ideas for a herringbonelike pattern for a variegated grey merino wool yarn, worsted weight?

thanks...
so here's a more specific question:

which one of these herringbone-like patterns works better? has anyone tried them?

OOH! how lovely! thanks for the link, that scarf is gorgeous.
I guess in my grey yarn, that pattern would look nice for a man's scarf. Do you also like the WS as much as the RS?
Your pattern is similar to the one in the Treasury of Knitting Patterns... that is also a 2-row pattern, which reads: Ktog through back loop, but only slip first stitch off needle, then knit second stitch together with next stitch through the back loop, but only slip first stitch off needle, etc. until the last stitch which you knit. The second row, you p2tog and slip only the first stitch off the needle, etc.

The scarf rolls in so the backside isn't really showing
