Design Note: “Even though the scarf is completely reversible, all cable crossings and shaping are worked on the same side…”

These cables are tilted to run diagonally across the scarf. The diagonal rectangle is formed by increasing on one side and decreasing on the other.
Knit in squishy warm garter stitch in a worsted weight yarn, this piece features reversible cables, so when you wrap the scarf ends around you, they look exactly the same on both sides. A cozy fringe completes the look.
It is easy yet a bit of a challenge for the fearless knitter.

There is a small error relating to the cable crossing.
The cable is k1, p1, …p1 at first. but after you cross the cable the first time, it changes to p1, k1, …k1.
So you should work in pattern: i.e. k the knit sts and p the purl sts.
Every time you cross the cable it will switch.
