I wrote up a stitch pattern that worked up well when I was asked to make a scarf for my cousin.

It’s a very loose pattern. I wrote it up so that those who like to have something to refer to when working could download the pattern or print it out, but it’s a basic 5 stitch repeat with garter borders/edges. It’s pretty easy to memorize once you get going. Feel free to use markers to indicate the border. I didn’t get to detailed when writing it up, again, since many will be able to figure out the pattern after just a few rows and I wanted to keep it to one printed page.

The cable is a very simply cable worked over 2 sts and is worked on the needles (with out a cable needle). It may sound daunting, but it’s not.

Unfortunately since it’s a simple “use what ever yarn you’d like” type pattern, I can’t really give yardage/meterage. The one I made used about 400 yards of worsted weight.

On a personal note: It’s so titled because my cousin Sarah once made it into the paper on a bitter blustery and snowy Maine winter day when she went out for coffee on a break from work. In the photo she’s wearing a winter coat, has a bulky scarf wrapped around her head. The hand holding the coffee is bare, and she’s wearing a mini skirt, tights, and dress shoes. Our grandmother never let her forget that. So when I was asked to make her a scarf for her Birthday, I couldn’t resist naming it after her. ;)
