My brother and his partner are heading to England for a year so I figured they'd need some winter woolies.  I decided I might as well get my act together and knit them something they can also wear this winter, before they go.  I ended up with two very similar scarves based on the famous Fourteen, by Yarnballboogie.

Hers is a simple brioche rib with purple and mauve yarn.  I added the decorative button holes that I found ... somewhere.

His is knit sideways in a grey-blue yarn.  It's a simple garter stitch pattern.

Nothing revolutionary but I'm really happy with both of them.  I posted them today and hope they like them.

Any thoughts?

So much to make, so little time!

I like both of them, and I'm sure they will both be very thankful when that cold weather comes.

I really like the mauve one- it has a very feminine feel to it (which is something I hope you were going for)!

Personal swap hungry- send me a yummy PM.

I'm loving all these super-slick un-scarves I'm seeing around here lately.  Very chic, and good button choice.

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.

Thanks guys.  Sorry about the crap photos.

BlairsBear, I have to admit they were some of the cheapest buttons I could find in that size.  I was amazed by the prices!  I looked at a couple of styles that weren't that inspiring and they were $4-5 per button!  I was pretty happy with the ones I found though.  You can't see it in the picture but they're kind of sparkly.
