FO Friday 36: Mac's Cabled Scarf Free Pattern














So Mac's Scarf has been completed, washed, blocked, wrapped and posted ... and here is the free pattern.



Yarn: 4 x 50g Sublime Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK, 464m/508yds. I used the colorway 'Button' 0051. Of course, you can substitute any DK yarn, as long as the yardage is about the same.

Needles: 4mm/US size 6

Legend:
T3F: twist 3 front (slip next 2st onto cable n
eedle in front of work, P1 from Left-hand needle, K2 st from cable needle)
T3B: twist 3 back (slip next st onto cable needle at back of work, K2 st from Left-hand needle,P 1st from cable needle)
C4F: cable 4 front (slip next 2st onto cable needle
at front of work, K2 st from Left-hand needle,K2 st from cable needle)
T4F: twist 4 front (slip next 2 st onto cable needle at front of work, P2 st from Left-hand needle, K2 st from cable needle)
T4B: twist 4 back (slip next 2 st onto cable needle at back of work, K2 st from Left-hand needle, P2 st from cable needle)
T5L: twist 5 left(slip next 2 st onto the cable needle in front of work, K2,P1 from Left-hand needle, then K2 off the cable needle)

The first and last 3 stitches in each row create a garter stitch edging.

Cast on 58 stitches.
Knit 3 rows.

Repeat the above 24 pattern rows as many times as you like until the scarf has reached your desired length; tension/gauge is not particularly important - I found 1 ball did about 102 rows, or just over 4 pattern repeats.

Knit 3 rows.
Cast off. Wash and block gently.









































As ever - if you knit this and find any errors, please do let me know so I can correct them; and a little reminder that today's FOs can be found over at Tami's Amis.

  5. Wow, that pattern is really involved! I don't suppose there's a chance of getting a chart for it? I'm so bad at keeping track of where I am in written directions when it's more complicated like that.

  7. Holy smokes, that is BEAUTIFUL. I wish I knew how to knit cables, but haven't it made it that far into knitting yet! Will you be adding it to Ravelry patterns? I'd love to have it in my queue for when I know cable knitting.
