Leggo of my scarf

After writing this out a couple of times last night for some customers, I decided I'd share it with the world.  It's a simple waffle knit pattern with applied icords for the edges.  It makes a very nice scarf for any guy.  Maybe Alan will get one in red this year. 

I made this scarf a couple of years ago in Supercashmere but wanted to reknit it in the new Blue Sky Suri Merino.
