This scarf is one of my very favorites! I wear it all of the time!! If you are a little scared by cables but want the fancy look of them, this is a great pattern. It is very easy to make, and I love the look. I used Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk yarn, but any Aran weight yarn will give you the same look. You will need 2 to 3 balls depending on how long you like your scarves, I used 3 50 gram balls. I added fringe, but that is optional.Enjoy!
