This scarf is one of my very favorites! I wear it all of the time!! If you are a little scared by cables but want the fancy look of them, this is a great pattern. It is very easy to make, and I love the look. I used Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk yarn, but any Aran weight yarn will give you the same look. You will need 2 to 3 balls depending on how long you like your scarves, I used 3 50 gram balls. I added fringe, but that is optional.Enjoy!
just happened to see this pattern. i am very unsure of knitting cable patterns, but wow! this is so easy – many thanks.
This scarf came out sooooooooooooooooo nice and was sooooo quick and easy for a “Newbie” at knitting. Thank you for the pattern.
What does the r1 mean in the mock cable scarf?
Trying to knit the mock cable scarf, but only end up with 1 stitch at the end of the row on row 3!!! I’ve tried a few times and even written it out with the 27 starting stitches, and it just doesn’t come up with two at the end of that 3rd row…
This was really easy to use, and looks cool! I made it in grey wool for my boyfriend and he loves it.
I think you should put the width of the finished scarf on the pattern, that would be nice to know.
R1 means row one=)
When you slip the stitch in row three do you slip it purl wise or knit wise?
I slipped it purl wise and it works nicely, But I have been putting the yarn behind the slipped stitch and I’m not sure that this is right. But I guess either way you choose to do it as long as you continue in the same way to make the pattern consistent you should get a nice final product.
Wow, Can’t believe I’ve found this pattern after all this time, I am so pleased! I knitted a cardigan in this pattern about 25 years ago, I am actually wearing it right now, but unfortunately I loaned the pattern to someone at work and never got it back, anyway now I think I’ll make this scarf for all my sisters and my mum and my friends! I love it. and hopefully I might even be able to put the pattern into a new cardigan too 🙂
