Skill Level
Intermediate, for knitters comfortable with cables.
I have created a color-coded system in both the written and chart patterns to easily discern the 6 different cable stitches at a glance. Knitters have told me they love it and I hope it helps you cable knit, too!
Other basic stitches: Slip Knot, Cast On long-tail method, Knit Stitch, Purl Stitch

Scarf Size and Dimensions
The finished scarf size is 72″ x 7″ blocked.

Knitting Gauge
Cable Heart Pattern Blocked 4″ x 4″ Gauge Swatch: 14 sts x 13 rows

Scarf Construction
The knitted scarf is created from the bottom up on straight needles using a cable needle, too. This cable stitch is not a reversible pattern, so the heart motif is only visible on the right side of your work. However, the wrong side looks pretty, too, with a smooth Stockinette design of its own.

Cable Repeats
This pattern consists of 24 cast-on stitches in 10-row repeats using 6 different cable stitches to create this beautifully detailed design.
