This is the big sister to the Double Crème Brie scarf – a wider and slightly longer stole version in a chocolatey shade of merino wool/cashmere blend yarn that begs to be knit and worn!
Two panels of the lovely and truly unique threaded diamond cable are separated by chunky braided cables.
This is a relaxing knit for cable-lovers with spectacular results. Cable pattern stitches are both charted and written out.
Knit this beauty up as a sophisticated piece to throw over your shoulders or wear as a generous scarf. Two lengths included. The shorter length can even be sewn into a simple poncho by folding in half and seaming along edges, leaving the opening for the head (as shown in photo).
