I found the most beautiful pattern last night for a wide scarf. I really wanted to use my Malabrigo yarn with the pattern, but didn't want it to be as wide.

So, I've revised the pattern:

Dipsy's Cable-Lace-Scarf Reworked with Malabrigo by Shandeh
Materials: 1 or 2 skeins (not sure yet) Malabrigo Yarn
Needles: US size 9 needles

Abbreviations:
k2tog: knit the next two stitches together
skp: slip one st knitwise, knit the next stitch, pass slipped stitch over
C6F: slip the next 3 stitches onto a cable needle and hold them in front of the work; knit the next 3 stitches; then knit the 3 stitches off the cable needle.
Yo: Yarn Over

Directions:
Cast on 27 stitches.
Row 1 (RS): K7, p3, k2tog, yo, p2, k2tog, yo, p4, K7
Row 2 and all even rows:
Work stitches as they show up: Purls are purled,
knit stitches are knit. Yarn-overs are purled.
Row 3: k7, p2, k2tog, yo, p2, k2tog, yo, p5, k7
Row 5: k1, C6F, p5, k2tog, yo, p6, C6F, k1

Row 15: k7, p5, yo, skp, p2, yo, skp, p2, k7
Row 17: k7, p6, yo, skp, p5, k7

Row 21: k1, C6F, p4, yo, skp, p2, yo, skp, p3, C6F, k1
Row 23: k7, p5, yo, skp, p2, yo, skp, p2, k7
Repeat rows 1 - 24 until desired length or you run out of yarn.

Here is the original pattern: http://www.millharrow.com/weblog/front_content.php?idart=146&idsel=145

I started working on it this morning, and did the first set of 24 rows. I like how it's going so far!

After seeing your narrower cable and lace scarf, that is what I am doing for my sweet sil. That is, if my malabrigo comes in the mail today !

How wide is your cable-lace-cable pattern, and do you think just one skein of malabrigo will be enough ?

Juding by all the enthusiastic posts, I think you have started your very own knit-along !

Oh, I hope your yarn comes in soon!! :pray: It's so hard to wait for beautiful yarn, isn't it?

My scarf is 4 1/4 inches wide, but I'm a tight knitter. I think that one skein will be enough, but time will tell! I'm crossing my fingers that it will be. I probably won't put fringe on mine, because I'm not a big fan of fringe.

Judging by all the enthusiastic posts, I think you have started your very own knit-along !
Cool! 8)

That's beautiful! I love how you made it symmetrical -- that was the one thing I wasn't sure I liked about the original pattern.

It looks like the back of a scarf. :teehee:

It's not too bad, really.

Thank you all so much. I'm really enjoying making this scarf. The yarn feels like heaven, and the stitch pattern is fun.

There is a special yarn-over in this pattern. Last night, I made a video of how to do the YO after a purl, and before a SKP. (It's kind of a weird procedure.) You have to do that special yarn-over on rows 13, 15, 17, 19, 21, and 23.

The pattern is lovely!! And the color's beautiful!! :inlove:

Hmmm... I never thought about yo-s being being different depending on what you do after it... I'm a conti knitter so and it's always just been the same for me nomatter what I knit after it...

Gorgeous!! Love the way this looks already!
Very tempting, as I just got a skein of Malabrigo in Olive to wear with my hat. Hmmmm....
