hi I would love to make this scarf, I just have one question though - is it reversible (as in, the back of the scarf looks just like the front of the scarf)?

Well. being a stockinette stitch based scarf, the back will look different from the front but I really like how a lot of purls look together. So I would consider it reversible but two different scarves. Like a two for one deal!

I'm with Jennifer - want to do this scarf but in a reversible pattern. Does anyone know of one like this?

What if you use a K1 P1 pattern in conjunction with the cable pattern? That should look the same on the front and the back, right?
