Reversible cable scarf

This is going to sound kind of strange, but this is the first scarf I have ever designed or made. I have been knitting for two years, (and designing for almost that long) and I have never made one of the simplest things there is to make. That is probably because I don't really wear scarves. I have to say that after making this one, I am beginning to change my mind about them. I designed this one for my sister, Jenn, for her birthday.

Broad spiral rib pullover

Okay, so this is my first little bit of selfish knitting in a long time. This sweater was just something I designed for warmth and comfort. I used my favorite construction technique: The top down raglan. It features a broad spiral ribbing pattern which resemble little cables. (Well, I guess they kind of are, but no cable needle was used to create them.) A small mirror cable runs down the center front. The stitch patterns used make this a very close fitting and figure flattering garment. The yarn is a superwash wool, so it is very warm as well.
