Yesterday I finally finished the scarf I’ve been working on for the last month. I’ve been joking that by the time I finished it, it would be too warm to wear it, but I was actually legitimately worried about that. Fortunately, while spring is on its way, I think I’ll be able to find plenty of days to wear my scarf before I have to put it away for the season.

The scarf itself is warm (100% wool), cabled, and reversible, which is part of the reason it took me so long to knit. It’s all worked in a k1, p1 rib, with lovely eyelets separating the cables. I looked high and low for a pattern like this, and I eventually modified it from this one. Below you’ll find my version of the pattern. scarf 1

3 skeins Stitch Nation Full O’ Sheep yarn (100% wool, Aran /10 ply weight, 155 yards per skein)
Size 10 needles

S1=slip 1 stitch
K2tog=knit 2 stitches together
C8B=slip 4 stitches onto cable needle, hold behind, K1P1 4 stitches, then K1P1 the 4 stitches off the cable needle

Cable row: S1, YO, K2tog, *C8B, YO, K2tog*, repeat between ** 4 times, K1

Work Row A of pattern stitch 3 times, then work Cable Row once.
For the remainder of the scarf, work Row A 5 times, then work Cable Row every 6th row. Repeat until your scarf reaches your desired length.
Work Row A 3 more times after your final Cable Row, repeat set-up row, and bind off in pattern.

I got about 26 inches of scarf per ball of yarn, for a scarf of about 78 inches long. The yarn I used is actually discontinued (which is why I was able to make this scarf for about $13), but you should be able to substitute another Aran /10 ply weight yarn.

Happy knitting! Do you have anything on your needles these days?

    Recently I was REALLY low on cash and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money.. on the internet. I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills!! I’m so glad, I did this!!! – 95am
