This looks like a really nice scarf! i might just have to give in and try the reversable cable technique. :)

I just finished a reversible cable scarf for my husband's Xmas gift.  This scarf looks like something I would love wearing.  I'll let you know how it turns out.  Thanks!

Thank you!  I'm not sure when I can get to this project, but I love the reversible cables.
