The first cable scarf I made was two sided, now Im working on a beautiful pattern that I really love, but noticing the back looks totally unattractive.  This is the pattern Im using http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/rupe.  Do most cable scarves have the pattern on both sides?  I'm looking at other patterns, but can't tell if the pattern is two sided.  Thanks!

no- generally cable scarf patterns are not 2 sided.  A 2 sided cable is actually a tight rib so it looks like stocking stitch on both sides.  You could probably adapt the pattern-  I think you would k1p1 instead of a k1.
