The Reversible cabled scarf #2 is a long scarf with cables on a garter stitch background on both sides !!!

The other reversible scarf #1 can be found here
Get both patterns 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, 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 showing the cables, but they are mirrored which makes it completely reversible.

This scarf (#2) is easier than scarf #1 because it uses only the easy cabling to the right. Cabling to the left is far more complicated to execute.
The stitch pattern is charted and fully written.
