The Cable On Scarf, first published in Norwegian in Familien 2/2015, is now available in English in my Ravelry Store. It was the first in my series of reversible scarves that look equally good as a loose collar and the later designs have their own collars added onto the scarf. Here is my introductions to it: The cable on scarf is reversible, made in rib instead of the usual stocking stitch, framed by double seed stitch on every edge. Distinctive Stag Horn cables give the generous scarf texture and depth. Why not use it as a decorative warm collar pinned together by a shawl pin. The sample is knitted in a natural grey shade of the beautiful Norwegian Pelt Yarn/Norsk Pelsull by Hifa.
