I just recently finished a Fun Fur Boa Scarf. I had so much fun making this scarf and can't wait to make more. I purchased some other fun fur and frill yarns to make scarves for this year. I am currently working on my first sweater for my husband too.
For the scarf I used a basic pattern from Crafty Elf: http://www.craftelf.com/Knitting_Fun_Fur_Scarf.htm
My husbands pattern is: http://www.sirdar.co.uk/designs/mens/sweatersMens/9390
I'm using Cascade Yarns Eco+ Shade 9448. Its a beautiful green color.
