View Full Version : FO: Reversible Cable Scarf

This is my Reversible Cable scarf from Cables Untangled. It took me a long time to knit because I was knitting other things and because the pattern got a little boring- I hate to say that, but it's true. I find scarves take me longer to knit than anything else!
I used Louet Riverstone in Eggplant. It took about 2.5 skeins. The colour doesn't look much like the pictures, but more like #2 than #1.

Very nice and I :heart: the color. I was just reading the Yarn Harlot's "Knitting Rules" book and she was talking about how scarves should not be a beginner project because they take soooooo long and can get boring -- I'm currently working on the palindrome scarf, which I love, but it's taking me forever because it bores me ... :cool:

It's beautiful! That's a lot of cables, no wonder it took so long!

Thanks everyone! I think I'm not in love with the colour anymore and that's why I'm sort of blah about it!
I read that in Knitting Rules! too gal51 and I always recommend beginners start with something like a dishcloth.
I love scarves, but I think I need to find one that will be more challenging next time. I also love cables, but I think I'm beyond some of the "easy" patterns!

OMG!! That is such a gorgeous scarf and the colour is magnificent. I just LOVE it. You did such a wonderful job on it. You should be very proud of this scarf. The time it took was well worth it when you see the final product. Lovely job!!!

Have to agree, that's a very pretty scarf.
I like to make scarves when I knit in public,especially cabled ones. Most folks are intrigued, and they are easy enough that I don't have to pay much attention to the pattern.

Would love to have that pattern where did you get it ?
I'd love to try it but I'm a little worried about the cable thing. I can make cables, but if I make an error that I don't notice right away, I'm not sure I would be able to get back to my spot when I tinked or ripped back.
Of course, I could drag it to the LYS for help.....
Anyway, it's beautiful!!!!! :thumbsup:

The pattern is from Cables Untangled by Melissa Leapman. There's some gorgeous stuff in there, but I fell in love with this scarf at first sight.
