Emerald Blue Reversable Cable Scarf
This is a close up shot of a great scarf pattern that was made with two skeins of Malabrigo yarn. It is a reversible cable pattern that is very easy and looks great with this yarn. It was written by an employee of The Custom Shop in Maine and was given away free. Click here for a free PDF.
I posted it because I thought you might enjoy trying the Reversible Cable Scarf pattern yourself. Please do not sell it or use for profit.
Yarn: Worsted weight yarn. I used 2 skeins of Malabrigo at 216 yards per skein. Gauge: 4-5 stitches per inch with needles 7-9 U.S. (I used size 8 for mine)
C3B: Slip next 3 sts to cable needle and hold in back, knit 3 stitches, knit 3 stitches from cable needle.
Cast on 48 stitches.
Row 1: k9, (p6,k6) 3 times, k3
Row 2: k3, (p6,k6) 3 times, p6, k3
Row 3: k3, (C3B, p6) 3 times, C3B, k3
Row 4: Same as Row 2
Row 5: Same as Row 1
Row 6: K3, (p6, C3B) 3 times, p6, k3
Repeat rows 1-6 to desired length or until you run out of yarn. Bind off. Do not bind off too loosely because the end wants to ruffle a bit.
Comment: I think if I do it again I may do a few rows of straight knitting on either end to see if that stabilizes the ends. Although, I am not sure it really matters, because it is a lovely scarf.
