Here's a better pic of the BR hat from metaphysical muse's fabulous pattern:
Hat was cascade lanawool, and the button is hand hammered copper that I got at the antique store.

Thanks for Looking!
ETA: I realized that what I wrote in the post later on was a little difficult to follow, since I don't really use patterns, so here's a nice shiny pattern for you for the Big Fat Cable Scarf...
Cascade Magnum - 1 skein
Size 35 Needles
Gauge is around 2st. per inch, not that it matters.
CO 12 St using knitted cast on (make a slip knot, knit this stitch onto the right needle, then pass it back to the left needle. Knit into the space between those two stitches, then pass that stitch back onto the left needle etc. until you have 12)
Row 1: K1, P1, K1, K6, K1, P1, K1
Row 2: K1, P1, K1, P6, K1, P1, K1
Row 3, 5: Rep. row 1
Row 4, 6: Rep. row 2
Row 7: K1, P1, K1, Slip next 3 purlwise onto dpn or cable needle and move to front of work, K3, K3 from cable needle in the same order that they were slipped, K1, P1, K1
Row 8: Rep. row 2
Repeat these 8 rows until you're finished with the skein, ending on a row 6, then BO all stitches.
Hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any questions, since this is the first pattern I've ever written out.
