Canberra Scarf & Hat

Tah Dah! Here it is! In all its glory! My finished ISE4 Project that I named the Canberra Scarf.
I used an original pattern that blended two of my most favorite things to knit - cables & lace. The cables and lace, simple enough not to be overpowering, complement each other wonderfully. The yarn that I used, Jaeger Como, was not my first choice, but it worked up truly remarkable with the pattern. It is oh so soft, and oh so luscious and oh so long. After all, my pal did ask for long. I also made a hat to go along with the scarf to keep my pal toasty warm during the upcoming winter season. I hope that my pal will like it half as much as I loved knitting it.

I'd love to have the pattern for your scarf design. It is so intricate. I'm looking for something to inspire me further.
