Amy Pond VoV/VatD Scarf pattern help  
So, now that we've gotten more views of her scarf, I kinda want to replace mine with a more accurate one (mine is far too narrow). Since scarves aren't really on the market right now, and since I knit, I'm going to just make it myself. However, I'm currently lacking the time to draft up an accurate-ish pattern, so I'm going to use one someone else has designed.

That's where you guys come in. I can't find one that's exact, and I've found a few I really like... the problem is the ones that are more accurate I don't like the pattern as much as ones that are a little less accurate.

Amy's Scarf:

So, options! (mine, of course, would be made in red, but I couldn't find red pics for all of them)

Scarf pattern 1:

Pros: my favorite looking pattern out of all of them, I love the design, simple without being simplistic, gives the organic feel hers has
Cons: Lace pattern is slanted as opposed to vertical

scarf pattern 2:

(same pattern, but extended to be a blanket)

Pros: has the more accurate up and down lace pattern, more visible lace pattern
Cons: I'm not a huge fan of the diamond design

Scarf Pattern 3:

Pros: I really like the way it looks when gathered around the neck, pretty, vertical lace pattern
cons: don't really like the way it looks when it's just hanging normally, looks less like wheat or grain that Amys is and more like leaves/fire

So, those are the three I've kinda narrowed it down to (unless anyone has any better options) Which do you guys think would work the best to mimic the look of Amy's scarf best? I like all three, but I wanted to see what other people thought before I chose.

Another option has been added, and it looks really really similar:

(obviously i'd widen it, add more repeats)

We've been having this same discussion on Ravelry's Who Knits - the consensus is that Amy's scarf seems to be the "Frost Flowers" lace pattern, of which you can see a good example in this tank top here. (That link also has a free chart for the Frost Flowers pattern.)

Ohh that does look really really close, I only see a small difference right off the bat... I'll have to look at that. Thanks (and i'm over there.. i really should have looked in the who knits area. -facepalm-)

I like pattern 2, but is there anyway since you said you didn't like the diamonds, to make the diamond shapes round at the points? Amy's scarf kind of looks like it has the diamond pattern but they aren't a diamond, it's a bit rounded off around it.

Does that make sense?

Do you have any names/links for your three pattern options so far? - they all look nice and people might like to use them if they can identify them

Good luck choosing!

Direct link to the Ravelry Who Knits? discussion about the scarf as mentioned above is here ^_^ includes some more screenshots of Amy's one

That stitch pattern is in one of the Barbara Walker treasuries (the 2nd one?) under the name 'Frost Flowers". :) It's one of my favorite patterns!

Re: amy's scarf
I'm talking about her VoV/VatD scarf, not her TPO one.
