Modern fishermen and women need to look stylish and stay warm when trolling about in winter. The fully reversible Fish Moderne Scarf is worked in heavily textured Mistake and Twisted Rib, framing a wide ribbed cable. The generous length can be wrapped easily, while the thick and cozy fabric keeps out wind and weather.

The Fish Moderne Scarf is a companion to the Fish Moderne Hat; purchase either one and automatically save 50% on the other.

Techniques & Skills Used: Cable CO, knit/purl, twisted stitches, cables; this pattern is both written and charted.

Size: 8” wide and 68” long, after gentle blocking.

Yarn: Cascade Yarns Ecological Wool (100% wool; 478 yards/250g), shown in 8010; 1 skein. Sample used about 460 yards of heavy aran weight yarn.

Other Materials: US 10 (6mm) needles, or size to match gauge; Stitch markers (2); Cable needle; Yarn needle.

Gauge: 21 st and 18 rows/4” in scarf pattern, after gentle blocking. One cable repeat is 3.5” tall and 3” wide. The ribbed cable and Mistake Rib compress the scarf fabric in width considerably; a comparable gauge in stockinette stitch is 15 st and 18 rows/4”. Gauge is not critical for this project; however a different gauge may result in a smaller or larger finished scarf, and different yardage requirements.
