A quick knit and much easier than it looks, this scarf makes an impressive gift for men and women alike! A great intro to cables that look like burnished etchings on silver jewelry or intricate wrought iron.

Wrap these cables around your neck for an elegant accessory to just about every aspect of your wardrobe.

We carried a light fingering, almost lace weight, strand along with the main DK weight yarn to give it a touch of sheen. I absolutely love the way it accentuates the cables, catching the light and making them look like they were carved into precious metal.

Make Etchings for your favorite fellow and then you can steal it back whenever you want to wear it!

This design offers endless possibilities for your wardrobe: as a cowl, shoulder wrap, infinity, or make it longer as shown and wear it open as a scarf to really show off those cables. Button it, pin it, seam it if you like into an eternity scarf, but know that you will want to make it in several colors and in varying lengths.

Complete written and charted instructions are included.
