I started working on this cable scarf just as the entire world went into lock-down due to the COVID scare. As I wound down from a tiring day, my best part of the day was to sit in the balcony, watching the sunset and knit on this scarf. As the cables on this scarf meandered, so did my thoughts, oscillating between anxiety and panic about the pandemic scare and gratefulness and calmness which the dusk brought. Every time I look at this scarf, it reminds me of the golden light and the tranquility of the summer dusk.

Summer Dusk is knit from one end to the other with repeats of the cable stitch pattern, which is available as chart and as written instructions. The scarf can be made longer or shorter by working more or fewer repeats of the cable stitch pattern.
