Another cable scarf

I made this scarf for my niece who is a freshman at the University of Nebraksa--go Huskers!!! ( our mom and youngest brother are hardcore Husker fans)
She needed some cold weather team spirit gear.
This ought to fill the bill.

Cast on 46 w/ size 8 needles

Row 1: K1, p1, k1, k12, p2, k12, p2, k12,  k1, p1, k1
Row 2: K1, p1, k1, p12, k2, p12, k2, p12, k1, p1, k1
Row 3: repeat row 1
Row 4: repeat row 2
Row 5: K1, p1, k1,  k4, C8B, p2, k4 C8B, p2, k4, C8B, k1, p1, k1
Row 6: repeat row 2
Row 7: repeat row 1
Row 8: repeat row 2
Row 9: repeat row 1
Row 10: repeat row 2
Row 11: K1, p1, k1, C8F, k4, p2, C8F, k4, p2, C8F, k4, k1, p1, k1
Row 12: repeat row 2

Continue repeating rows 1-12 until desired length and then cast off.

  • Original pattern inspiration here.  I modified it some--adding a side border as well as lengthened out the distance between cables.
  • 2 skeins Red Heart Soft in Wine (I prefer a blue/red over an orange/red most of the time).  And my niece has similar coloring to my #2 daughter here)
  • Finished dimensions:  oops!! forgot to take them before I packaged it up to send.  About 6 inches wide and probably close to 70 inches as you can wrap it around your neck once.
