I am contemplating making another one in a lighter color for me. I think the stitch pattern blocks would looks SO GREAT and stand out way better in a lighter color. And, I would also pay attention to which side is right and which side is wrong... I did four whole pattern repeats and I like the length a lot. It's long enough to wrap around my neck twice and still stick the ends into my coat. This would be a really good pattern for beginners who want to knit something a little more than a plain scarf.
