cabled vest/cowl - *Inspiration* this one is knit but you could easily crochet this so pull out your favorite scarf pattern and get to crocheting. You may need to adjust the width of the scarf. Once your scarf is long enough, wrap it around yourse.
Just leaped off the page as being very pretty. Seeing this and a couple similar looking made me look more at the granny stitch'esque'y look (instead of "just" row after row of hdc half double crochet) for bulky yarn projects I'm trying to do right now.
