cabled scarf

This scarf is an original pattern vaguely inspired by Lily Chin’s reversible rib cabled shawl.

I knit this from 5 skeins of Berroco Glace (a 100% rayon ribbon) in color #2344, “Pink Champagne” on a set of Lantern Moon US # 9 ebony straight needles. Its finished size is approximately 50” long x 5” wide.

The picture to the right shows both sides of the scarf. The picture below is a close-up of the cables. (Click on either picture to enlarge.)

Those near and dear to me know that I am in no way a “pink” person. I’m a green person, or a mauve person, or even a blue person. But not pink. This scarf was made as a birthday present for my friend L, who is definitely a pink person. When I saw this yarn at the LYS, I immediately thought of L. She must have had ESP, because on the day I gifted it to her, she happened to be wearing a pink blazer that matched perfectly the color of the scarf.

  • Thought of the Minute
    • A few minutes ago every tree was excited, bowing to the roaring storm, waving, swirling, tossing their branches in glorious enthusiasm like worship. But though to the outer ear these trees are now silent, their songs never cease.
