Beautiful :) I love cables. I'm sure he'll love it. And if he doesn't, I could use another scarf! ;)

Good looking scarf!

Just out of curiosity/design aspects - I see from your directions that you put stockinette stitch right at the edges - when I have done this in my experiments, the edges curl badly, so I usually put a stitch or two of garter at the edges, or I slip the first stitch of every row to control the curling. In your picture the edges look fine and not curled - is this yarn stiff enough not to curl? or is it hidden by the 2 stitch cabled rib next to it?

I think it's a combination of the fact that it is only one stitch and the thick yarn. Perhaps some tension from the cabled rib is also helping to stabilize it.

The design creates a beautiful texture. Very nice looking!

It looks great! I'm sure your brother will really appreciate it.

This is great! I just learned how to cable last weekend and was trying to find and interesting pattern with cables.

I must say Paxknitter....what an incredible job you are doing on the scarf so far.

Wow, very cool project. I might have to borrow it for the backed up orders. I have anxiety attacks doing scarves as they take so long for me! I like this alot!
