A fun way to explore cable patterns without committing to a full size sweater, this pattern provides seven “squares” of cabled patterns that add up to be just the right length for a simple cozy neck wrap. Full instructions are given for a nice 6 stitch buttonhole for a fancy big button to finish it off. Knit up in a heavy worsted weight wool, the work is quick and easy to see. Good for someone who wants to learn some basic cable patterns, and for anyone who would simply like an excuse to “swatch” several patterns and end up with something wearable in the end.

Each section is interchangeable so you can also pick your favorite(s) and make up your own variation very easily.

These are written instructions only. There is a detail photo for each of the seven sections.

Gauge swatch is not included in yardage - you can pull out the swatch, or “swatch” knitting the first section and measuring it before moving on. The original design started off as a swatch so the width is about the same as one would use to swatch the gauge anyway.
