In Norse mythology, Logi is the embodiment of fire who beat Loki in an eating contest. The cable on this scarf was inspired by the interlocking designs on Viking armor and jewelry which is surrounded by double moss stitch borders. The cable starts and ends in a pair of points, like the tips of a flame. To do this, fewer stitches are cast on and then increases are worked to make the points.
This scarf was designed for my brother-in-law, and if you’d ever seen him and my husband eat a pile of barbeque, you’ll know the other reason this scarf is named Logi! This is a great pattern to knit for guys, especially when you tell them that the cable is Viking-related.
