I got my wife's red scarf finished with a whole day to spare before Christmas. It's in the feather and fan design and it is 6 feet long, so my wife can fold it midway and then tuck the ends through the center in kind of a half Windsor knot. The second picture is more true to the color. I used Knit Picks Shine Worsted Serrano, 60% Pima Cotton, 40 Modal. It's incredibly soft and a real pleasure to handle.
