This openwork rib stitch has a nice blend of lace and structure, which makes it great for a scarf. The stitch is easy to memorize, too. I used some leftover yarn to make a small scarf, of course you could easily make a longer scarf by using up more yardage.
Finished Measurements: 32 inches by 6 inches
Yarn: worsted weight; sample knit with most of a skein (about 150 yds.) of Lionbrand Wool-Ease, Ranch Red

Row 1: K2, YO, k2tog tbl; repeat across
