This unisex scarf solves the problem of how to hide the ugly backside of a cabled scarf. Work the cables in 1x1 rib and make it reversible! Two identical ‘eccentric’ cables surround a braided cable. A slip stitch edging creates a neat finish.

Why is this scarf Double-Dealing? Not only it is two-faced, but it also works for a man or a woman.

Skills Needed to Successfully Complete This Pattern:
cast on, knit, purl, slip stitches, use markers, cable, bind off in ribbing.
