I love knitting scarves. I really don't need another one, but scarves are my go-to project whenever I want to make something relatively simple and portable. They're also great for using up the yarn stash, which is currently overflowing from the closet despite my best efforts to reorganize it.
The pattern I used is the Rick Rack Scarf from Purl Bee. I fell in love with the stitch pattern when I first saw it. It's only two rows to memorize and knits up relatively quickly. It also looks good on both sides (very important for a scarf).
I used two skeins of Red Heart Soft Touch yarn. It's really thick and cozy.
Here's more close-ups of the amazing stitch pattern:
