This scarf is extra special to me because not only is it a chunky cable pattern, but it was designed by one of my Flickr/ Ravelry buddies, Jennifer at jaykayknits. It’s been on my list for a year or so, and with fall approaching, I thought it’s time had come.
Jennifer used a really beautiful, hand-spun, thick and thin yarn for the original, but since I’m usually relegated to the local hobby store, I went with Bernat Roving in light gray held together with a strand of darker worsted wool for a little color depth.
This was an easy knit, but not so simple as to be boring. It knit up so fast in bulky yarn that it seemed a shame to stop after two repeats of the cable pattern, so I just kept going with it and went from neck warmer to scarf (a total 7 cable patterns, I believe.)
For now, I’m just using one button, but may add another (or make them yellow, I’m not sure.)
Here’s the full length shot of it below taken when it was in the upper eighties. I’m thinking “winter” like a mantra lately. Are we never satisfied?
