I wanted to use up some of my sock yarn for things other than socks. Valkyrie is a one-skein scarf with an easy-to-follow cables and lace pattern.
It can be made wider to make it more of a stole. I can see this in some gorgeous hand-dyed silk laceweight with one or two extra pattern repeats.
The combination of cables and lace with purled wrong-side rows makes for a nice pattern that goes smoothly and is easy and quick to knit.
