♫ The Music ♫
The Donegal Traveler is a traditional Irish reel first published in 1788 – a delightfully lively tune that weaves its magic to dispel any gloom. Like so many traditional tunes it is known by various names - including “The Mouse That Caught the Cat”.

The central Celtic cable panel is the star attraction in this scarf; it is flanked on each side by a pair of rope cables separated by a Garter stitch ladder. Both edges are worked in a ribbed cable which creates the scalloped edge. The scarf begins with an I-cord cast on and ends with an I-cord bind off.

Two full sets of directions are included: one for knitters who prefer charts and a full set of written directions for knitters who prefer to work from text.
