This is my new winter scarf. Is very cold in my country and I really needed a long, wormy and textured scarf.
I love landscape cables, I’ve already made a blanket with this pattern and now I’m working on a cardigan. These cables form a deeply textured fabric that is mesmerizing to the eye, and it works so beautiful for any projects you want to knit.
For this scarf you will need:
400 g Red Heart Detroit DK, color 05675;
4,5 mm needle;
RS= right side;
WS= wrong side;
sl= slip stitch;
cn= cable needle;
C10F= Slip next 5 stitches to cable needle and hold at front of work, knit 5 from left needle, knit 5 stitches from cable needle;
C10B= Slip next 5 stitches to cable needle and hold at back of work, knit 5 from left needle, knit 5 stitches from cable needle;
Cast on multiple of 15 stitches plus 2.
Row 1: knit;
Row 2: purl;
Row 3 (cable row): k1, C10F, *k5, C10F*, repeat *-*, k6;
Row 4: purl;
Row 5: knit;
Row 6: purl;
Row 7: knit;
Row 8: purl;
Row 9 (cable row): K6, C10B, *k5, C10B*, repeat *-*, k1
Row 10: purl;
Row 11: knit
Row 12: purl
Repeat from row 1 until you reach the desired length.
My scarf has 92 stitches and 280 cm (110 inch) length.
This is the chart for the stitch pattern:
You can wear this scarf wrapped around your neck:
Or you can make a City Slicker Knot: fold the scarf in half lengthwise and wrap it around your neck, then pull the loose ends through the loop that was created by the fold.
If you have a hard winter too and you want to stay worm every time you go outside this scarf is perfect for you. You can make it wider and then you will have a blanket scarf! You can choose what color you love, this pattern looks gorgeous in any color. Or you can choose to make something else: a cardigan, sweater, hat, blanket, a pillow or a baby blanket.
I can’t wait to see your ideas!
