Well, I never thought the day would come! I finally finished this Viking Knits Cabled scarf! It is my pattern, sorta. I took the Viking Cable pattern from Elsebeth Lavold's first book, then added other stitches around it to make it into a scarf.
I originally had big ideas to make this scarf 70" long.
But, alas, the boredom got to me. I settled for 48".
For short me (5' tall, barely)...48" will do! If this had been a gift
scarf for a tall guy, I woulda continued. I have 3 skeins of the Rowan Tapestry still remaining, which will become a hat and fingerless gloves (maybe "Fetching"!) someday. But, not now.
I blocked the scarf using wires and heavy mist. It really made short work of the blocking process! No more pin "pulls/pimples"!
And, the heavy misting really tamed the scarf pattern cables.
Well here are my photos, overkill once again!

Here is a photo (below) of the diagram/sketch of the cable, as seen in the pages of her book. I want to give credit where credit is due! Her book is still on sale at Amazon.com by the way. Click HERE
