Reversible cables are the ultimate for cabled scarves and cowls. You never have to worry about them flipping over to show their bad side, because they just don’t have one. Plus, this technique creates a fabric that makes the finished project even warmer and cozier then it’s one-sided cousins. NORTHENER can be made in any one of the following three lengths:

Small cowl - 60.3cm (23¾“) long and 14cm (5½”) wide
Double wrap infinity/short scarf - 120.7cm (47½“) long and 14cm (5½”) wide
Cozy long scarf - 181cm (71¼“) long and 14cm (5½”) wide

or whatever length you desire. Yarn requirements are 1, 2, and 3 skeins, respectively, of Malabrigo Yarn’s Mecha. Whether you go with a solid, a semi-solid, or a multi, remember that light to medium colours are the best to show off all your cabling.
