Here’s the picture of my completed sock scarf, all washed and blocked. As we all know, it is a blatant rip off of the sock scarf version from Jerry of When Knitting Was A Manly Art.

Except mine doesn’t look anything like his.

For one thing, mine is a lot fatter, and at about 4 feet long (because that was all of the yarn I had) it’s 1/2 the length of Jerry’s at 8 feet. His is striped, mine is ribbed. He worked both sides of his top-down. I started at one toe and worked toe-up and then top-down on the second sock.

It’s all good. 🙂

scarf detail

This picture shows a close-up of the fish-tail cables. They’ve been fun to do. I search around a bit to find a not-quite-ordinary pattern that would look reasonably the same “upside down” so that I could work the scarf from toe to toe.
It was a lot of fun to do and worked really fast on size 10-1/2 needles.

I might make another one some time, if I get ambitious. I like the way that the fish-tail cables turned out. The yarn is a Peruvian wool by Cascade. The color doesn’t show very well in the pictures, but it’s a heathered green, with flecks of rust and tiny touches of turquoise.
