new reversible scarf pattern

8-21-12 I have picked a name for this scarf pattern. I am going to be calling this "The drunken mason" because it looks like crooked brick work on both sides

At this point this is just really raw. I am confident that the chart is complete and accurate and this PDF is not fine tuned for publishing. But as far as the information on it goes I think it's done. If anyone would like to give this a go and leave a comment I would very much appreciate it.

This is a reversible stitch pattern for a scarf. it has a wide variety of stitches in it including twisted stitches and dropped stitches. Even though this had dropped stitches it is still mostly a solid knit so I think it should be suitable for winter.

Heres the rough draft. I don't have a name for this yet. I was also asked to offer it as a written pattern so that will come as well. This chart is right handed so those lefty's will have to flip the stitch deffinations. But i did use m1l and m1r to better destinguish these stitches from the twisted stitches and that should make it easier to identify the stitches that need to be swapped

this is a PDF document. it's only 2 pages but saved as 3

reversible stitch pattern.

This is my working sample I used to help create the pattern.

side A

I don't know why this one loads sideways. it's not sideways on my camera and the thumb nail is not sideways when I select it but for some reason blogger uploads it sideways 

side B
but this one loaded straight.

When this is finished I'll also be offering it as a written pattern.

Mine doesn't look like the picture at all. I think I must be misunderstanding the symbols.

Ok, I realised that your picture is showing the work sideways. Mine still doesn't look quite like yours, but I'm going to show it on my blog, http://janemactats.blogspot.com/

yours looks right I may need to better define the increases coming off the twisted ridge. I'll try to get my photos to post the right direction. I kinda posted in a hurry and I work 3rd shift. I didn't have a chance to fix it at the time.
