After many unsuccessful tries yesterday, I found a stitch pattern I love. I tried variations of feather and fan, I tried stitch patterns that make waves longways, and I considered trying a modular knitting approach.
Finally, I came across the Corona Pattern Stitch from the Reader’s Digest Ultimate Sourcebook of Knitting and Crochet Stitches.
The thing I love about this yarn is how it looks almost unspun. The stitches that dip down into the eyelets several rows below really show off that detail. Wanna see? Here’s a closeup. It’s a really easy pattern to memorize because you can figure out what your next row should be just by looking at the row below.
I bought 3 hanks of this yarn (600 yards) and I think that will be way too much for this scarf. Heck, Clapotis only takes 600 yards! Even if I don’t use it all up, this yarn is such a pleasure to work with that I’m sure I can find a second use for it.

You’re right, that stitch pattern shows off the yarn very well. It’s beautiful!
Oh wow, a great bold pattern works very well with that yarn.
I love the look!
Who made the yarn and what is the color
The stitch pattern is really cool! All your looking around and trying things out was worth it.
That’s really pretty yarn, and I like the pattern a lot. Thanks for mentioning where it came from.
