Irish Hiking Scarf ???
OK - I've been loving this scarf for awhile. I went out and found the grey color I've been wanting in the Lion Brand Wool Ease Chunky. My question - I notice the pattern calls for size 8 needles & worsted weight yarn - I dont think this will look right with the bulky weight yarn - it would be too wide - has anyone ever made it with chunky yarn?

Do you think I could take out that 3rd cable and only have 2 cables going up the scarf? I'm not good at making designs on my own - I know some of you are great at it - I'm calling on your help!

Thanks all!

I'm using the Misti Alpaca Chunky to make it. It is just scrumptous to feel. I'm also using a size 9 needle. The 8 was too small and the 10 was too big, for me that is...

I don't see why you couldn't just have the 2 cables, but don't ask me how to do it, I'm not that brave yet...

To make it with just two cables, keep the ends the same and the p2, k2, p2 (RS) in the middle. I think it'll be lovely.

I've made one in worsted wool on 10's and a six row cross and I like it really well. Works up faster and looks about the same.

Find me on as Quiara. ^_^
