As soon as I got this scarf going, in all its bobbly goodness, I couldn't stop.
I've doubted the skinny scarf for a long while, but this one is long enough to wrap around a few times for warmth. It's also skinny enough to be useful (and not too warm) in the chilly desert evening (if only we could ever get off this coast!).
The scarf looks good with a black shirt
Anyway, if you want the pattern (make a chain of bobbles, then granny around it), go here, or Ravel it here. I realized this morning that everyone else (the pattern designer and and the one other person on Ravelry with a photo) did four rounds of color. Mine's three, which is why it seemed kinda skinny and why I got it done in one evening (though learning Arabic on my new Rosetta Stone* software slowed me up a bit, so maybe I could have done another round without that distraction).
*Can you tell I'm totally in love with this thing? I started Core Lesson 2 last night, and was totally baffled at how smart I'm getting.
