I am getting my things together for a 2 week cruise. I'd like to take some small knitting projects with me. I have some silk yarn for a scarf. Any suggestions for scarf patterns that I could take with me?

Take a look at the "little nothing" patterns at www.knitspot.com

You should check out the free patterns listing for scarves. Solaris and some others have posted many many many scarves, some you won't be able to pass up. Branching out might be a nice idea too, several people here have made and loved that pattern.

"Luscious" with silk would be beautiful. "Luscious" has a unique (to me, anyway) chart that is about as easy to follow as they come. See our discussion in the other forums too (Lace) Have fun cruising!

I agree with YarnGoddess - Anne from Knitspot has some great patterns for scarves.

I picked up a Fiddlesticks pattern (http://www.fiddlesticksknitting.com/One_Ball_Warmers.html), and bought some wool to go with it at http://www.needleartsbookshop.com/patterns/One-Ball_Warmers.html. I picked up a few balls of the sale yarn to get started.. They work up very quickly; the wool feels fabulous and I think they would make for some fabulous Christmas presents for those who don't like long scarves. I'm especially crazy about the leaf ones. =)

Since you'll be on a cruise - you really should get the book "Ocean Breezes: Knitted Scarves Inspired by the Sea," by Sheryl Thies. How very appropriate - and it has a lot of great patterns!

I just got back from a 5 day cruise and started a Clapotis (www.knitty.com). Honestly, I didn't have that much down time to knit but it the few moments I had, I loved doing this one. You can see mine on Ravelry (name: hipknitta).

Have a great time! (P.S. I didn't gain a pound!)

Same as it ever was.

2 suggestions. First, if you have the Fall 2000 issue of Interweave Knits, look on page 80 for the Casual-Formal Reversablr Scarves. Have made many from this pattern.

Second, one I have not tried yet but plan to is the Tiger Eye Lace Scarf I found on this site.

I am also going on a 2 week cruise in Sept.- to AK. Am planning on knitting the Icarus Shawl - Knits Summer 2006, page 74. Just bought some Galaxy Shimmer from Knit Picks for this project. I won't be able to finish this until after my cruise because the solid yarn I want for the border won't be available until Sept 30, but that is OK, I'm a slow knitter.

Have a WONDERFUL time on your cruise.

I'm currently knitting up Branching Out into Lace from Knitty with a silk yarn (if you're on Ravelry, you can see my progress here). It doesn't look quite as nice in my project pics because it's not blocked yet, but when I've stretched it out as I would to block it's looked wonderful. It's a fairly simple lace pattern (first one I've ever done) with only a 10 row repeat.

I made the lace ribbon scarf from Knitty on my trip to Hawaii a few weeks ago. It was the perfect travel project - interesting w/o being too taxing on the brain. It would look great in silk. http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring08/PATTlaceribbon.html

Lace made with silk is STUNNING. Every week I have few skeins of handpainted laceweight silk (w/free patterns) listed for sale on ebay. Come take a look!
