I love cables, but have been wanting to play with creating texture and patterns with simple knit and purl stitches for a while. After making a bunch of Seed Stitch Scarves I figured giving a different textured scarf a shot would be fun. As it turns out, diagonal ribbing is fairly straightforward but looks amazing. The yarn is nice and chunky and warm so it’s a pretty quick knit, and if you can’t decide between the regular and infinity version, well, why not try both? ;)

The suggested yarn is from We Are Knitters, and uses exactly two balls. If you wish to substitute the yarn it’s very straightforward, any bulky weight wool yarn that knits up to the correct tension will work.
