Reversible Cable Scarf

Lion Brand® Lion® Cashmere Blend


18 sts + 24 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in Stockinette Stitch (knit on RS, purl on WS).

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Reversible Cable Scarf Reviewed by Andrea Peck on 2012-10-26 *****
I just finished this pattern. This was my second scarf made with cables, and it was a lot of fun. The pattern was easy to memorize, and I finished the scarf in just a few days. The seed stitch border really pulls it all together and makes the cables pop. The scarf is a tad narrower than I usually like, but this one is a present for my sister-in-law for Christmas. If I made this pattern again, I would add an extra cable repeat. I think it turned out beautifully and almost wish I could keep it!
