I call it "Ripples in the Sand"!
Completely reversible; no wrong side!

4" x 58"
194 yds Elann Peruvian Highland Bulky (3.6 skeins)

This is my pattern:

Cast on 24 st.
Work K1-P1 rib across RS and WS.
However, the very first stitch of each row should be slipped knitwise, without knitting. Then just carry on for the remainder of the rows. The last stitch of the row is purled. No slipping.

So, Row 1 would be like this: slip 1 knitwise, (P1K1)x3, end P1.
Each side is like that.

Summary:
Rows 1-7: rib
Row 8: slip 1/ rib 7 / CF8/ rib 7, ending in P1.
Repeat Rows 1-8 til your scarf is desired length.
End with Rows 1-7.
Bind off ribwise.

CF8 is: slip 4 onto cable needle, rib the next 4, rib the 4 off the cable needle

It is useful to place row markers. It is easy to miss a Row 8 and go on to a Row 10 for a cable. Count your rows.

Here is the appearance of the edge stitch:

You can see my white row markers still in place as of this photo!

A bulky weight scarf doesn't need to be any wider than 4".

I love it! :inlove: Reversible is my favorite. I wouldn't even consider a scarf that isn't!

Thanks for the pattern! I won't get to it for awhile, but can I share it with my Knit Night group if they ask?

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!! Major kudos to you for making up this pattern, especially since it's reversible!!! I think I will do a baby blanket with this pattern, I'm not a big scarf person. This is so awesome. If I end up doing a project with this, I will definitely let you know about it!!! Do you have this pattern on raverly so I can add it to my favorites??

No, it isn't in the Ravelry pattern files...but it is in my personal Ravelry folder. I hope you enjoy making this!

It isn't an especially brainy pattern. Just a ribbed scarf with a wide cable up the middle. But, sometimes, "simple" can be the best!

And I don't even know for sure if someone else hasn't thought of a pattern like this. I am glad you like it!

I called it 'ripples in the sand' because it reminds me of the footprint left behind by receding tidal waters.

:muah: You is one lean, not so mean, knittin' machine, Dollyce! Love this scarf, and it would make a cute baby blankie. Have to work that up tomorrow, when I'm not falling over tired.

What a sweetie you are to share with us like you do. :heart:

Oh, I remember a scarf pattern by that name but cannot be sure if it was knit or crochet. :doh: Where do I look in my bookmarks? Stash binder? Oh, no matter. I like your pattern too.

Although, growing up in the snow belt of northwestern Pennsylvania does bring to mind several winters where I wanted a bulky weight scarf wide enough to wrap my head and then some! :roflhard:

Your "Ripples in the Sand" scarf if a wonderful pattern and you did a great job. It looks wonderful and warm. :thumbsup:

P.S. :oops: My mistake, the scarf pattern I found long ago is called "Shifting Sands (http://grumperina.com/knitblog/shiftingsands.htm)."

No problem! That's why I posted my pattern. It is simple and easy, and I think it would be a great cabled scarf to take the 'cable plunge'!

Just be sure to keep track of the row repeats or you WILL overshoot the Row 8 cable! I must've had to frog back 6 times! Even WITH row repeat markers! OY! :doh:

It's really pretty! Reminds me of the "Palindrome" scarf, with the reversible cables, though I really like how you did the edging with the slipped stitches.
