Reversible Knitting

Scarf I've finished just in time for the weather to pick up:
 Despite looking like crochet its actually knitted. Really the plan was to just try out some of the stitich patterns from Lynne Barrs fantastic book but it was fun to do so a couple of lines snowballed into a lightweight scarf. Pictures of the whole thing:
Because it is knit rather than crocheted it used slightly less yarn and stretches like knit does, not important in a scarf but in a cardigan or jumper would be useful. On the other hand it was pretty time consuming/a faff to knit the little squares and link them; anything that didn't need to stretch it would be better just to use crochet!
