Wattle stitch scarf

I was looking through the Fall 2009 issue of Interweave Crochet and saw instructions for wattle stitch. The swatch in the magazine was done with a single-color off-white yarn, but I wondered what it would look like in a variegated colorway...

It looks like this:
Wattle stitch scarf

I love the zigzag effect! It's a very easy stitch (just one row repeated on both sides) with a complicated-looking result. The yarn is a mini-skein of Ellen's Half-Pint Farm merino/silk that I've had in my stash for many years. After I got a 4" swatch done, I just kept going. I'll apparently have a new scarf for this winter.
