I suppose this is a bit late, as I have already written 4 blog posts about styling this scarf! But the pattern is now available, in my Etsy store ( https://www.etsy.com/listing/233912541/garter-slip-rib-scarf-digital-knitting?ref=shop_home_active_1 ), my Ravelry Store ( http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/garter-slip-rib-scarf ) and my Craftsy store ( http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/knitting/accessory/garter-slip-rib-scarf/146579 ). The really nifty thing about this pattern is that the fabric of the scarf is beautifully textured, and it looks lovely when twisted or braided (see the previous four blog posts for some creative ways to take advantage of this feature). It is soft and warm, and the yarn has some lovely colorways. Check it out! http://www.lionbrand.com/yarns/unique.html
This pattern is not difficult to knit. It uses a combination of knit and purl stitches along with stitches which are slipped knitwise or purlwise with the yarn in back or in front. I hope you will give it a try!
