Reversible cable scarf

I made this scarf a few years ago.

Yarn: Cleckheaton Angora Supreme

Needles: Not 100% sure but I believe I used 5.5mm.  Tension is not vital, I would recommend that if you are a ‘standard’ knitter you use 1 size bigger than the size stated on the yarn ball band.  Of course if you are a tight or loose knitter adjust the size to suit.

C8B – put next 4 stitches on to cable needle and hold at back of work, (k1 p1) twice then (k1 p1) twice from cable needle.

Pattern:
Cast on 40 stitches (12 stitch repeat +4)
Row 1 & 2  K2 P2 *(K1 P1) 4 times k2 p2 . Repeat from * 2 times

Row 3 & 4  P2 K2 *(K1 P1) 4 times P2 K2 . Repeat from * 2 times.

Row 5 & 6:   K2 P2 *(K1 P1) 4 times k2 p2 . Repeat from * 2 times

Row 7:  P2 K2 *C8B P2 K2. Repeat from * 2 times.

Row 8: P2 K2 *(K1 P1) 4 times P2 K2  Repeat from * 2 times.

Repeat pattern until desired length is reached finishing with row 6.

Cast off in pattern.

Updated 26/3/09 as pattern contained extra stitches between the cables.  Pattern now matches picture.

Note for Left Handed knitters: Your cables will cross in the other direction, this is not a problem however if you do want them to cross as in the picture then substitute the C8B with C8F.

C8F – put next 4 stitches on to cable needle and hold at front of work, (k1 p1) twice then (k1 p1) twice from cable needle.

  1. This is lovely, looks like it’ll be cosy to wear. I love cables, it’s a shame I can’t knit them! (Crochet cables never look as nice)

  2. Jus what I’ve been looking for – it’s especially nice in the alpaca, but I imagine a similar worsted weight yarn could be subsituted if necessary. Do you remember how many yards this scarf requires?

    • I think I used 3 – 4 balls of the angora supreme and there is about 140m in a ball. So about 420m – 560m. If you click the Ravelry link above (need to be a member) you will see one I am currently making in Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran.

  3. Thanks so much for the info – your green version looks great – love the colour and the sheen on the yarn. I’m starting my own tonight – trying to decide between berocco lustra, berocco ultra alpaca, or noro silk garden #279. Oh, I love a new project ! ! !
