The Reversible cabled scarf #1 is a long scarf with cabling on a garter stitch background on both sides !!
The other reversible scarf #2 can be found here. It is a little bit easier to execute than #1.
Get both patterns together at a discounted price. Place both patterns in the basket and the discount shows at checkout.

I like to combine different techniques…
Here it is a mix of reversible stitches like garter stitch and ribbing, of cable knitting and a few aspects from double knitting.

No more worries how to wear your cabled scarf, if the good side is up or not… There is no wrong side or no right side. Both sides are equally attractive featuring the cables, but mirrored.
The stitch pattern is charted and fully written.
