Cabling Newbie

I'm new to cabling and looking for any input you all can offer. My dad has requested a scarf for Christmas - it seemed like the perfect project to try out cabling. Does anybody have ideas/input on what pattern to use. One that looks pretty on both sides, but is still manly enough?

I was thinking about an Irish Hiking Scarf, but I'm not totally sold on it. I bought some Cascade 220 in a warm brown - enough for a scarf and fingerless glove/mittens. Such a good daughter.

Any suggestions about size/design/etc. for a man's scarf would be greatly appreciated!
