Comments: I love the feel of the microfiber is incredibly soft and non-itchy.  The cost is quite affordable too, averaging about $2.50 a skein.  It is a little "splitty", but not enough to cause a problem.  The actual scarf took a long time to knit.  I don't remember how many repeats I knit, but it was a multiple of the 44 rows.  Other great things about this design: it lays flat and it's reversible.  The other side is a mirror image of the front and it looks just as good!
Yarn with more "memory", like wool, will show off the wavy pattern more.  I don't recommend very soft or "drapey" yarns like 100% alpaca or 100% silk.
