Very Chic Scarf
Part of the Very Chic series, this scarf features elongated cables, made extra fluid by dropping stitches between select cables. The result is a soft and drapey skinny scarf that naturally curls slightly inward, making an attractive and wrappable semi-tube that’s fun to knit and pretty to wear.
Techniques & Skills Used: knit/purl, cables, dropped stitches; this pattern includes both a chart and written instructions.
Size: 5” wide and 80” long, after gentle blocking.
Other Materials: US 9 (5.5mm) needles; Stitch markers (3); Cable needle; Yarn needle; Crochet hook (any size) to help with raveling.
Gauge: 16 st and 20 rows/4” in stockinette stitch; one cable is approximately 2.5” wide. Gauge is not critical for this project, however a different gauge may result in a smaller or larger finished scarf, and different yardage requirements.
Many thanks to my lovely test knitters!
