Swatches - designing a dropped-loop scarf

I ordered a huge stash of yarn from, and (of course) it is set to arrive the day after I leave on a trip to Hawaii! I needed a project for the plane (over 13 hours in the air!), so I decided to try to design a hat and scarf using up the Forest Green Heather Wool-Ease Yarn that has been sitting in my cupboard.

So now I'm swatching! Varying the numbers of yarn overs dropped, and the number of rows in between each dropped row.

This is the one that I think I'm going to go with:

Hopefully I'll still like the pattern when I increase the width! I'll post the pattern when I'm done.
