I made this scarf for a good friend of mine who had requested it for her birthday. Unfortunately I was a little bit late as her birthday was in the first week of April and I only finished it yesterday :/
All she said she wanted was a knitted scarf in a neutral colour - she's got a few winter coats in different colours and so we thought that cream would be best. Other than that I had complete artistic freedom (which is a lot harder than having a straight pattern to follow!). I suggested a few designs and settled on a cabled scarf broken up with bits of stockinette and a seed stitch border. Pretty simple.
I used Debbie Bliss's Casmerino Aran, I absolutely adore this yarn, it's a dream to work with and is so soft against the skin.
I haven't seen her to give it to her yet, but hopefully she'll love it :)
