Simple Knitted Two Cable Scarf [Pattern]

21 Jul
This pattern is a simple cabled scarf. It is a knit pattern. I contemplated not putting the pattern on this site simply because I started this blog to spotlight crochet; however, while I could start a new blog for knitting, I figure… why? I won’t have that many knit patterns so I don’t think it’ll hurt to have it on this blog.

The wool I used was a rather expensive wool/acrylic blend, but you do NOT need it for this pattern. Any yarn will do as long as it is a worsted weight – if you go with a thinner yarn, you will need to adjust the size of your needles accordingly. Unfortunately, I’m not experienced enough to be able to suggest a specific needle size for a different size yarn. You’ll have to experiment with that on your own. Of course, if you change yarn weight to something thinner, you’ll need more yarn to cover the pattern length. My only real suggestion is that whatever you use, you will most likely want it to be washable – some people have time to hand wash items… me, I like to pitch it in the washer and not worry about it.

    Your scarf is lovely!  I really like the color you used.  I'm a bit of a chicken when it comes to cables but I'll get there eventually.

    Oh my what a pretty scarf! Love the colors! I only crochet but if I ever feel brave enough to take up knitting I'd love to try your pattern!

    Thanks – it took a few tries for me to have that “moment” where knitting was ok with me :P
