I wasn't part of this knit-a-long, but I just finished up one of these as well

It's made out of scratchy wool, but I'm hoping it will soften with age. I used the trick from The Knitting Answer Book by Margaret Radcliffe where you cast on one less stitch than  you need for EACH cable, then increase on the row before you do your first twist. Then when finishing you decrease right below each cable. I can't say that it made a tremendous difference, but when I cast on without doing it the bottom was all frayed out (I can't think of the best word to describe it, but those who have knit this probably know what I'm talking about--it sort of gets wider at the ends), so I ripped out and started again, and this limited the fray-edness at least a little bit.

actually I was wondering about frayed out ends because I saw them on some blogs. Is there a good cast-on to use for this scarf. I was planning on using a long tail cast on, but would it work?

I looked in my vogue knitting book and decided to use a cable cast on. This is the scarf so far (in knitpicks' wool of the andes)

tejer-  I like how your edges turned out.  Mine are similar, but I'm using a dark brown tweed so it's a little harder to see the nice pattern.
It's 28 inches long so far and I have quite a bit of yarn left.

I am interested in Halloween Rinchies (round inchies) to make bottle cap magnets.

All of your scarves are awesome. I think I may join in on this! All I know is purl and knit stitches (although I really want to learn more) I'm so excied about this! I've never seen a pattern this nice with just these two basic stitches.

It looks really cool. It's going to make someone a great gift.

I'm knitting this scarf at the moment and I went into Gap the other day. They are selling scarves almost exactly like it except for the border and the cables twist in the other direction. Anyway, I thought that it was pretty cool that I could knit something in a shop. Sorry, I don't know how much it was so I can't compare how much it was with mine.
