These are the 2 scarves I'm working on.
The pink one on the left is for me. It's supposed to be 72" but I think I'll end up stopping somewhere around 60". I'm using Caron Simply Soft in Soft Pink. This is my first attempt at anything with cables. So far I think it's going well. The pattern can be found here: http://www.caron.com/projects/ss/ss12_reverse_cable_scarf.html.
The camo one on the right is for my husband. Not sure how long I'm going to make it but probably somewhere in the vicinity of 60" as well. Just using a simple k2, p2 ribbing. For a man you can be too frilly or he won't wear it.
