This pattern is available as a free Ravelry download

Skills Used:

  • crochet chain cast-on
  • slipped stitches (for tube selvedge)
  • basic cables
  • dealing with cable splay
  • following charts
  • bind-off in pattern

Pattern Notes:
To prevent cable splay, the scarf begins with casting on a smaller number of stitches that are increased in the 1st row and decreased back before bind-off.

If you find cable increases difficult, you may replace them with a pair of any “solid”, non-open increases of your choice:

  • kfb, kfb
  • k1, m1, k1, m1, and m1, k1, m1, k1
  • k1, LLinc, k1, LLinc, and LRinc, k1, LRinc, k1
  • k1, kfbf, and kfbf, k1
  • etc.

Note 11-Feb-2013: Pattern update available: cable increases revised (thanks to Jen)

Thanks to Julia and Anna for help with tech edit.
