I have recently made another new scarf. This was a free pattern I found on Ravelry. The pattern is in multiple language downloads. http://melusinetricote.canalblog.com/archives/2008/03/18/index.html
I made mine in a burgandy coloured yarn from Cleckeaton Country 12ply. The photo shows the scarf looking more red than it is. I might get another photo another day.
