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.

This scarf is fun to knit. It's much easier than it looks so the end result is very impressive. It work up fast in bulky yarn and can add class to any fibre from acrylic to cashmere. It's just a pretty pattern.

Was relatively easy to do. Turns out to be a very attractive item and practical as well
