Zhú 竹 Bamboo Scarf

American English knitting terms - glossary provided.

US and Metric measurements.

Free support.

Intermediate skill level - extensive cabling/movement.

Directions both Charted and Written - recommend chart reading skills.

Worked flat, bottom up.

Project requires blocking for best effect.

Unique mirrored cables with a 3 stitch seed edging.

I love the movement in this cable pattern.
It reminds me of leafy, woven trellis style lucky bamboo plants, hence the name.
