Cables and lace are a winning combination in my book! This wide scarf is a stunning example of how a simple cable can beautifully frame and accentuate a lace design.
Three panels of lacy leaves run the full length of this chunky scarf, with gently waving cables separating them. A few stitches on either edge in Garter stitch give a neat finish.
This stitch pattern combination is quite easy to learn, making this a quick and satisfying project.
The resulting scarf is knit to a generous size so you can wear it like a stole or super cozy scarf. Either way you'll be sporting a very eye-catching and modern accessory.
