A lot of those yarns kind of have matching colours.. You could cast on for a length-wise scarf holding the yarns together, something like this http://www.scoutj.com/category/funky-scarf-swap/ would be pretty funky.

Wow I love the look of those cables! I never thought a chunky knit skirt would work either, now I'm tempted to create one of my own Smiley

Yeah I made a k1p1 rib scarf for my boyfriend once.. NEVER AGAIN. Though a 1x1 rib border may blend into stockinette better than garter. Smiley Hope it goes well!

Stockinette always curls.. I guess how bad it curls depends on how tightly you knit and what yarn you use. Microspun is acrylic isn't it? Blocking may not help it all that much then, cause acrylic is a synthetic fibre.

You could either try making a double knit scarf (all in stockinette, but no edges will curl), change to k1p1 rib (if tight enough it looks like stockinette but no curling, plus it's reversible) or start the scarf again with 3 or 4 rows of garter stitch then switching to stockinette to prevent the bottom from curling. or maybe add a fringe to weigh it down?? The top will curl as well when you bind off..

I like the henry scarf from knitty http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall07/PATThenry.html BUT it's knit on us3 needles.. eep. It's an awesome scarf though. Smiley

I don't think cables look girly either.. especially in black/grey/navy/etc. Maybe not bobbles though.. hehe

Your hat looks sooo cute on you. I love the funky button too. *ears prick up*.. a pattern you say? Cheesy

Wow, I have to agree, even I skein of really good cashmere would not be $275.00. 
I think the pattern is a twisted knit pattern.  You could try this:

Knit row:  Knit through the back of the loop across
Purl row:  Purl

I think this will give you that zig-sag look. 

holy crapcakes! shoulda known that they'd sell something so small, and -easy to make- (hand knitted on a loom too!) for $20938219419847. I mean, I could buy enough cashmere to knit me a sweater.

the tiny swatch (debbie bliss cashmerino aran)

judeh22 you are absolutely right, i thought this was herringbone stitch at first but it's simply 1 row ktbl, 1 row purl!

hope the photo is clear enough to see.. it's curling that's why i had to pin it down. wonder if it will even block out completely flat.. (e.t.a: i think the real pidge is double knit, so this wouldn't be a problem. hmm)

May I ask why? Smiley I like DK weight yarns, usually buy wool or wool-blends and tend to pick purples/pinks/reds a lot.
