The Pretender Scarf
This clever little pattern pretends to be a cabled scarf, but no cable needle was used. On close inspection, you will see it is completely reversible, with cables on both the RS and WS. Even more amazing, the pattern stitch can metamorphose to look like a lace stitch with just a little blocking.
This pattern is written for DK weight yarn. My sample used 2 lace weight yarns held together to yield a DK weight yarn, but any DK yarn can be used. I used Sweaterkits Silk Jewels for another scarf in this pattern. Pattern gives suggestions for adjusting width for different gauge yarns.
Skill Level: Intermediate. The pattern stitch may take a bit of practice at first, but once you get the hang of it, it is fun and easy to memorize. There is a link to a video tutorial on how to work the pattern stitch. Lace point needles may help you manipulate the stitches.
