I bought two skeins of Angel Hair yarn. One in black and the other in pink. I started knitting in garter stitch and just alternated the colors every 6 rows. However, after doing a quarter of the scarf, I don't like it. But, I don't know how to knit many other stitches. I'm pretty sure I could figure out how to knit a ribbed scarf with both colors. But, I wanted something cooler than that. I can't seem to find how to do 2 color diamonds anywhere. I'm not sure if I would be able to anyway. Then, I saw a tutorial for a basket weave stitch, but I didn't know if it was possible with 2 colors or if that would even look good. Any help would be great.
I am a beginner knitter. I have knitted 2 scarves, both with garter stitch. I have started knitting a scarf in stockinette stitch, but after doing several rows of it, I don't like the way it looks. Would a blocked stockinette stitch look good with 2 colors? If so, how do I do that?
Also a good link with tons of videos and help.
If you're going to do stockinette, you need to do a few rows (approx 5-6 at least) of garter stitch first so the scarf doesn't curl. Given the type of yarn you have seed stitch isn't going to show up very well. A straight ribbed scarf would look pretty. With the type of yarn you're using any stitch with a lot of definition, like seed stitch, isn't going to show up well.
In my opinion I'd suggest holding off on patterns where it shows as a diamond - that's more of an intermediate project and getting your feet wet with easier projects for now would be the best bet.
