Coming together like an optical illusion, the scarf comprises cable blocks knit on the bias, turned and seamed together. It’s as intriguing as it is enjoyable to knit.

Gauge: Each 36-st, 64-row square has 5.25”/11cm sides in pattern stitch after blocking.

Note: Scarf consists of 7 blocks. Each block is made from 4 diagonals, which are worked separately and joined once 4 diagonals have been completed. When all 7 blocks have been joined, pieces is trimmed with garter stitch borders, which are picked up and knit along all 4 edges.
