I made the pictured Soft as Lamb scarf for my sister.
It's a light fluffy scarf that has a nice drape due to using a larger hook size than called for with worsted weight yarn. I'm happy with the end result, but it was a bit quirky to make trying to get both sides symmetrical.
I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease in Wheat that I had stored in my stash. I thought the natural color would go with a lot of things and in that sense, she would get a lot of use out of it. It's not a Christmas present, just a "sisterly" gift and I'll give it to her next time I see her.
So with all that being said, here are the instructions for my scarf:
