Very cute, Karen! I'm knitting similar scarves on my KH 341 for stocking stuffers. I find that this type of scarf is perfect to wear with a v-neck sweater when you don't want to wear a turtleneck on colder days.
I didn't use I-cord, I just knit 15 feet of stockinette stitched yarn, 30 stitches wide, of 8/2 tencel(laceweight at 9 spi) and it curled in on itself nicely.
Great minds and all that...
