Slightly angled, and fully reversible, this hybrid scarf/shoulder shawl is delightful to knit in garter stitch with a cable and lace border and short rows to shape the point.
This scarf begins with one stitch and is increased for the first half of the scarf, then a short row section is worked to angle the lace/cable edge. Then the other side is decreased back down to one stitch. The cable is worked in a ribbing pattern, and the lace border is garter stitch based, making the scarf completely reversible.
