This deep purple scarf is terrific. Gorgeous cable design at each end. Here's the note the knitter attached to her photo:
I love this cable pattern from Encyclopedia of Knitting.
I love this one! This knitter did a beautiful job with the cable design, and the button addition is a nice touch. Can you imagine this one for Valentine's Day?

Here's another pretty scarf, again with cables and moss, seed, or double moss stitch inside the cable, and on the edges.

Here's another cable knit scarf, in a wonderful royal blue. This knitter tells us:
I am going to write up the pattern for this scarf soon for anyone that is interested. Favorite this photo and check back for a link to the free knitting pattern :)
I blogged about this scarf here: kateseyeview.com/?p=505
Do you have a favorite cable knit scarf pattern? If you like to share, I'd love to see it, and feature it here.
I'll ease back into the swing of things with a new project I completed. My daughter is in her second year at the University, and she wanted a white cable-knit scarf. Visiting a yarn shop I used to work in years ago, I happened upon a scarf that looked just right. It is cabled on both sides, and simple to do. I added a 3" fringe to finish it off, as per my daughter's request. It is now mailed off, and being used!
Here are some photos:
|One skein done!|
|This shows the cables on the other side. I staggered the cables on the other side, starting 5 rows after I cabled the first side. That way, every 5 rows I'm cabling. Make sense?|

This little cardigan is quite sweet~

I'm finally done with the body! The seed stitch bottom border felt like it took FOREVER! It looks cute so far, but I don't know if I could sit through that much seed stitch ever again.
Pretty. I love the photographic detail, each fiber called to attention.

This knitter tells us:
Here's what I've mostly been working on lately-- a houndstooth pattern scarf made from organic cotton. I ordered the pakucho stuff from elann and it's awesome! Though it's not as soft as I expected, it has a nice feel and I really like all the history behind it. Plus you can get really nice colors but they're all undyed! Whee!
There is nothing like a natural yarn. The possibilities are endless. . . and any pattern knit in a natural yarn seems to pop.
