I knit a mega scarf over the past 4 days! (5"x95") Want to wear it doubled with one end stuffed through the fold! Feels grrreat! This yarn is very light and lofty. Airy almost. But warm as it is 100% wool. Very inexpensive, too! $2.80 per 109y skein. Cost of scarf: $13

4.5 skeins of Elann Highland Donegal Tweed (http://www.elann.com/productdisp.asp?NAME=elann.com+Peruvian+Highland+D onegal&Season=&Company=&Cat=&ProductType=&OrderBy=&Count=1): Licorice
US10 needle

Here's (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/ArtLady/licorice-tweed-cabled-scarf)the pattern (my own concoction).

I like the "ribbed fringe" look:

Very nice. :cheering: I like your "fringe". I like the look of fringe, but it can get ratty looking over time, not this one.

Click here (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/ArtLady/licorice-tweed-cabled-scarf) to read the pattern! I included directions on how to do the middle cable (3x3 cable "C6F") and the small side cables (TW2: twisted stitches worked over 2 stitches).

TW2: worked on 2 knit stitches: skip 1st stitch and knit into the back of the 2nd stitch/do not remove stitch yet/now knit into the front of the 1st stitch as normal/slip both worked stitches off the left needle= one twisted stitch worked C6F: worked over 6 stitches: put 1st 3 knits onto a cable needle and hold to the front/knit the next 3 stitches/then knit the 3 stitches on the the cable needle=one 3x3 cable worked

I cant open that pattern. My computers being weird and won't let me open links. And I love the cables, but don't know how to do cables in general.

Well, here is the pattern for you. I copy/pasted it from my Ravelry page:

PATTERN:
Terms:
TW2: worked on 2 knit stitches: skip 1st stitch and knit into the back of the 2nd stitch/do not remove stitch yet/now knit into the front of the 1st stitch as normal/slip both worked stitches off the left needle= one twisted stitch worked
C6F: worked over 6 stitches: put 1st 3 knits onto a cable needle and hold to the front/knit the next 3 stitches/then knit the 3 stitches on the the cable needle=one 3x3 cable worked

CAST ON 32
US10
WORSTED WT YARN

RS facing: work K2/P2…end with K2 rib for 10 rows, or desired length for the “ribbed fringe” look, end on a WS. Of course, WS facing the row starts out with a P2 and ends with a P2.
Note: In first repeat, work rows 5 & 6 twice before moving on to Row 7 & 8. Eg: Work Row 1, 2, 3, 4, 5a, 6a, 5b, 6b, 7, & 8.

Rows 1/3/5:
K3/P1/TW2/P3/TW2/P2-K6-P2/TW2/P3/TW2/P1/K3

Rows 2/4/6/8:
K4/P2/K1P1K1/P2/K2-P6-K2/P2/K1P1K1/P2/K4

Row 7 (the cable row):
K3/P1/TW2/P3/TW2/P2-C6F-P2/TW2/P3/TW2/P1/K3

End the scarf by working this sequence:
Row 7
Row 8
Rows 1-6
Row 1
Then, WS facing: begin the ribbing with P2K2 across the row, and end with a P2.
Continue the 2x2 ribbing for 10 more rows.

Then, bind off in pattern.

Lovely scarf! I especially like the fringe! No need to comb it every once in a while. :teehee:

ArtLady, I've been admiring this tweed scarf and thinking about making one for my son. I love the look of tweed, but I find that most of it is itchy. How is the KnitPicks tweed -- is it soft against the skin?

Yes, this is the softest 100% wool tweed I've ever felt! It isn't to be compared to 100% merino however...but for the price of $2.80 per 109yd ball...it's a super buy!

I have purchased this Elann Peruvian Highland Donegal in Licorice, Cypress, and Hazelnut! It is so totally worth it...and I'm not just talking about the 'bargain' aspects!

Everytime I put on my Licorice Tweed "Miss BB" my husband compliments me. He really likes it!

The scarf and hat were done with the leftovers!
