Spiky Scarf

The last class sample for this quarter is done, and despite the fact that I put it off as long as possible, I really like it.
 
Spike stitch has never been one of my favorites; I like the look but the rows tend to bunch up and it becomes too thick with little or no drape. 
By using a larger than usual hook* and coming up with a new (to me anyway) modified spike stitch, I solved both problems and have a pretty handsome scarf with tons of drape that hubby has already claimed as his own.  
I haven't written up the pattern yet; I'll probably make it available as a download once I do.
Can you tell what Leia thinks of that idea?  

*Size K/6.5mm hook with worsted-weight Cascade 220 wool yarn.
