As is sometimes the case, finding the name for this pattern was the most difficult part of the whole design process. It was clear that I needed help. I put the word out, and people suggested a sparkling array of possible pattern names. My favorite was Cuberos (kyoob-err-os). You’re right; it’s not a real word. It’s a combination of cube, for the cubic illusion the stitches create, and Eros, the Greek god of love, because it made the person who suggested it think of her boyfriend, and how wonderful he would look in this scarf.

Pattern is written in scarf and shawl sizes, and is worked from the cast on end straight through to the bind off end.
